Premium Quality from Kobe, Japan

Martec KK
Martec from Japan provides industrial lifting and cleaning products of highest quality

Safety, Efficiency, Convenience


MARTEC is a Japanese trading company and manufacturer located in Kobe City with sales offices throughout Japan and group companies 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 Belgium, Italy, Sweden, UK and USA.

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 and to design and produce our own lifting products. In 2008 we started a joint venture in Samutprakam, Thailand where we transferred a part of our production. Through our group companies in China and Thailand we distribute our products to the Chinese market and to Southeast Asia.

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.

▷ Rotating Lifting Points

The unique rotating eye bolts FRENO LINKBOLT and ROTARY EYE BOLT are the result of product development process involving 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:

▷ Automatic Hooks and Insulated Hooks

At sites, where space and manpower are limited and lifted loads need to be released smoothly, our automatic AH HOOK is a safe and convenient solution. It allows both – engaging and releasing of loads – automatically, which makes it unnecessary to attach the load manually.
The AH is also 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.

MARTEC's insulated lifting product, the MI HOOK, is tested to resist 1000 Volt and therefore a suitable protection of overhead cranes during welding operations on suspended loads. The MI Hook is available for working load limits from 3 tons to 15 tons. The 15 ton model has the highest WLL among insulated hooks in Japan.

Introduction of the "BALANCE MASTER"
