Martec K.K.

Safety, Efficiency, Convenience


MARTEC is a Japanese trading company and manufacturer located in Kobe City with sales offices throughout Japan and affiliated firms in Thailand and in China.

After the incorporation in 1974, we focused on the import and sales of lifting products from Sweden and soon became one of the leaders in the Japanese lifting equipment market. We continuously expanded our business relations with overseas suppliers of innovative products that meet our customer’s demands. Today we import and distribute goods from companies in Sweden, Belgium, Italy, USA and Germany.

Furthermore, we developed the manufacturing side of our company. In 2001 we opened a production site at our head office in Kobe to manufacture safety attachments for the construction machinery industry. In 2008 we started a joint venture in Samutprakam, Thailand where we transferred a part of our production.


Products made by MARTEC

Our Products meet the highest safety and quality standards and fulfill the needs of customers from various industrial fields. Leading manufacturers of construction machinery, automobiles and steel trust the safe, labor-saving and convenient solutions we provide.

Our technical department conducts the whole product development process – from design and prototyping over testing to market launch – in compliance with our certified quality management system.

▷ Rotating Lifting Points

The unique rotating eye bolts FRENO LINKBOLT and ROTARY EYE BOLT are the result of product development process which involves long-time experience in load lifting.
Main applications are lifting and turning of molds for large plastic components in the automotive industry (bumpers, instrument panels, door trims) and lifting of precast concrete parts like columns or stairs.
Key advantages of our lifting points are:

  • The link or eye part always aligns itself to the load direction – ideal for safe side-lifting.
  • The working load limit (WLL) is higher than that of a conventional eye bolt of the same thread size, so smaller bolts sizes can be used.
  • The safety factor of all models is 5 times the WLL.



▷ Automatic Hooks

At sites, where space and manpower are limited and lifted loads need to be released smoothly, the automatic hooks developed and manufactured by MARTEC are a safe and convenient solution.

The AH HOOK allows both – engaging and releasing of loads – automatically, making attaching the load manually unnecessary.
Furthermore, the AH is an improvement of similar products in the market, because it is more durable and contains many spare parts which can be replaced once worn out.
Our simpler alternative, the TH HOOK, allows automatic release of loads while manual engaging is still needed.
