Milestones

ChainMaster – A success story for over 25 years

In its more than 25-year successful history, ChainMaster has set a few trend-setting milestones in stage technology. It all began with the development of the first PC control system in 1993, followed in 1994 by the launch of the world’s first VBG-70-certified system, thus creating a genuine standard in the industry. Only 4 years later – in 1998 – ChainMaster achieved the next triumph. It was the first company in the world to develop speed-controlled chain hoists for scenic applications (VarioLift). Over the years, the company has repeatedly managed to produce real technological highlights with its products and innovations. The absolute pinnacle to date in ChainMaster’s corporate history was the completion of the Qatar National Convention Center in 2011 with 1752 VarioLifts. This project is currently the largest chain hoist project in the entertainment sector worldwide. But for ChainMaster, this is not the end of the line! Only recently, in 2020, the company launched its new D8plus Ultra series, the world’s most compact electric chain hoists.
