Since we first started manufacturing lifting chains, we have been using Australian made steel from the likes of BHP, Bluescope and most recently Liberty OneSteel. And this Australian made steel uses Australian mined and processed iron ore. No other supplier of chains in Australia can make this claim. The vast majority of other lifting chains sold in Australia are from Europe, Nth America or China. So by purchasing KITO PWB chain, customers are supporting Australian made products and Australian jobs and families.
At KITO PWB every single manufactured link is proof tested. The Australian Standards for manufacturing lifting chains state that the chain must be tested by the manufacturer at 2 x the WLL (Working Load Limit). KITO PWB has always tested every chain they manufacture at 2.5 x the WLL. No other chain manufacturer has a testing regime as rigorous as this.
