Welcome to KWS Inc.


In 1995 the company THIELE GmbH & Co. KG established operations in the United States specifically focused on the sales of the THIELE brand of overhead lifting chain and components. Since then, Conveying Chain, Fishing Chain, Lifting Points, Manual Cranes, Hoist Chains as well as Magnet Chain Slings have been added to the product line. New products are continually being added, most recently various fittings and additional trade sizes to the Grade 100-Product range.

Today, KWS Inc., with its big warehouse in Beckley WV, supplemented by regional warehouses through the US, is able to supply German-made quality products to its valueable customers in short term. Our commitment is: "You need it, we have it"! Our logistics system ensures stock availability of at least 6-month sales, unique in the industry!

THIELE GmbH & Co. KG is an innovative manufacturer with a long tradition in the production of round steel chains and forged parts for the Lifting technology sector.

Still today the company is familyowned. In close cooperation with our customers we always search for better and more innovative solutions. We are also supported by renowned universities and leading research institutes. We are continuously researching new knowledge in material technique and shaping in order to develop lighter, more solid and safer products.
