History of product development

We have adopted both progressive and leapfrog R&D for next-gen technologies to develop products with different specifications based on our observation of product application in different domains to enhance our products’ added value while consolidating our market presence and expanding our market for product application.

Our main products can be separated into two major series of metal processing products: the “8-series” and the “N-series.” The “8-series” are our offerings for industrial lifting components, while the “N-series”are our safety components for fall protection. Starting from 2020 onward, we created an independent series for our self-retracting lifeline (SRL) products. In light of the significant discrepancies that exist in our products across different series, we have decided to use weight as the basis of production capacity disclosure for different series.

Product series Annual production capacity for 2020 (in tons)
8 series products 2,004.42        
N series products 3,881.19        
SRL series products 7.46        
Total 5,894.07        

Product Introduction

YOKE's main products can be divided into 2 categories.

Industrial lifting components

Safety components for fall protection

8 series products

The Company has been distributing its “8-series” products under its original brand of “YOKE,” and these products are mainly used in the chains, steel cables and lifting belts related to the handling and moving operations required by the working environment. In addition to establishing subsidiaries in China and Vietnam, we also have joint ventures in Germany, Japan, South Korea and Thailand, and they shoulder the burden of developing the market. Meanwhile, we have also collaborated with distributors in 45 countries around the world with long-term relationships so to provide comprehensive channels and services for our customers.

The lifting Yellow Point (YP) series has been our key product for 2020 as it contributed as much as 38.92% of the 8-series’ sales for the entire year, followed by our Grade 100 lifting chain fitting. And although the Grade 80 lifting chain fitting came in third, the series has been gradually replaced by the Grade 100 series products, with its proportion of distribution fallen by 4.57% compared to 2019.

Thanks to the growth momentum in the three major markets, the demand for 8-series has increased. However, as COVID-19 ravaged the world in 2020 and the number of confirmed cases skyrocketed in China, Europe and North America, we have witnessed work stoppage and even lockdowns in many countries. This resulted in a drastic reduction in the number of orders (48%) compared to the same period in 2019. In an effort to overcome the current market predicament with plummeting distribution, we opted to improve the comprehensive coverage and precision of our marketing in 2020 by publishing E-News on different topics and themes on a weekly basis. In fact, we published a total of 46 E-News articles in 2020 and changed our service model to provide online training for our customers. We have kept a close eye on the market situation and progress of work resumption in different countries while aggressively developing new customers so that we would be less reliant on existing clients. As of the end of 2020, we were able to boost our sales to minimize the deficit to 16% and developed eight new distributors.
