Introduction to YOKE

Company Overview

YOKE, the professional industrial lifting safety hooks manufacturer, was initiated in 1985. Driven by our mission to “manufacture quality hooks and safety equipment to deliver superior safety protection for mankind regardless of time and place,” we offer two primary product lines - the “8-series” of industrial lifting hooks and the “N-series” of personal safety equipment.

We started as a trading and virtual manufacturing company initially and started our global operations under our own brand YOKE in 1996. In 2017, we expanded our operations by establishing our second factory primary to produce fall protection safety products and accessories. Construction of our 3rd factory began in 2019 as we incorporated aluminum processing to provide more diverse products for our clients.  As of the end of 2020, YOKE has set up subsidiaries in China and Vietnam, along with joint ventures in Germany, Japan, Korea and Thailand, to help develop the market. Through our 102 distribution locations around the world, we have actively promoted product distribution and services.

Path of Development

The path of YOKE’s development is characterized by four different phases, as the Company adjusted its operational model based on the concept of a “niche-based mainstream market.” In 2019, YOKE re-formulated its operational strategy to focus on optimal expansion and set an ambitious goal of generating NTD 10 billion of turnover by 2028.

“Safety” is the core element for all safety hook products. As a proponent of “safety” as a value, we have embraced “pursuit of quality perfection, constant innovation and development, sustained management improvement and creation of customer satisfaction” as our management philosophy. And as such, we firmly believe that product safety and quality can only come from innovative R&D engineering, cutting-edge manufacturing technologies and prudent quality management. Apart from establishing stringent quality management systems such as the API ISO 9001 QMS, API Spec Q1 and DNV ISO 9001, type approvals have been obtained for products in multiple countries at the same time, including the related product safety certifications granted by the German Social Accident Insurance Association (DGUV), the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), the Det Norske Veritas (DNV), and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).
