Peerless Chain Co. - Division of Kito North America
Peerless Chain, established as a manufacturer of tire chains in 1917 eventually expanded into hardware and industrial chain manufacturing, as well as wire forms by the 1960’s. By the late 1970’s Peerless Chain entered the overhead lifting market.
Primarily known as a chain supplier to the local hardware stores and retail chain stores, the face of Peerless began to change with the acquisition of Weissenfels USA in March of 2004 and the acquisition of American Chain Company (ACCO) in July of 2006. The acquisition of these two companies expanded the industrial market for Peerless; specifically for Overhead Lifting and Marine products.
In December of 2010, the overhead lifting product line was bolstered once again with the acquisition of Letellier Material Handling Equipment (LMHE). Since 1974, LMHE has been manufacturing high quality overhead lifting devices to satisfy the requirements of customers in many diverse industries.
In September of 2011, Security Chain Company (SCC) became the newest member of the Peerless Industrial Group. SCC brings cutting-edge traction and cargo control products to our ever-increasing product offering.
Today, the PEERLESS INDUSTRIAL GROUP is the largest manufacturer and distributor of industrial and consumer chain and traction products in North America with a reputation for excellence in product quality and service. In the summer of 2014, the Peerless Industrial Group was sold, and became a division of Kito North America. Kito North America's other divisions are Kito Canada, and Harrington Hoists.
