Harrington Hoists, Inc., recently leased 97,000 square  feet of commercial property in the Elizabethtown PA Conewago Industrial Park.

 

The company will occupy the space in early December and hopes to be fully operational by May 2013. The company has begun to hire new people to begin operations at this facility. Additional workers will be hired after operations begin in April of 2013.

Inc. “We have been very excited to work closely with our parent company, Kito Corporation, in the moving of both the sourcing and manufacturing operations to the U.S. for these particular products. The proximity to our suppliers and our Manheim resources has made Elizabethtown the ideal location for this new operation”
