HOLT RECEIVES VITA’S FIRST COMMERCIAL SYSTEM
BROOMFIELD, CO and HOUSTON, TX, August 17, 2021 — Vita Inclinata (Vita), developer and producer of helicopter and crane load stabilization and precision hardware, today announced it shipped its first system to HOLT Crane & Equipment (HOLT), a leading provider of heavy equipment, service, and parts. The system —the Vita Load Pilot, part of the Vita Lifting System family — departed Vita Headquarters in Broomfield, CO for a 1,000 mile journey to Houston, TX.
The Vita Load Pilot gives the construction industry a tool to efficiently and precisely place crane loads. Even in high winds, the system automatically adjusts to keep the load stable; all the while keeping the load in a precise orientation of the rigger’s choosing without the use of a tagline. The Vita Load Pilot is a tool to ensure a safer workforce without replacing workers, while simultaneously increasing efficiency on job sites.
“Safety is where we see the biggest advantage — distancing someone from the load and allowing someone to set the load without the use of a tagline,” said David Worsham, General Manager, HOLT. “Everyone in the construction industry is becoming more aware of safety in their organization, especially at HOLT. That will be the foundation of this. We are an organization of these values.”
Vita and HOLT announced a contract manufacturing agreement on July 12, 2021 following a live demonstration of the technology in March 2021 (https://vitatech.co/2021/07/12/vita-inclinata-announces-distribution-partnership-with-holt-crane-equipment/). This week, HOLT will be receiving the first of six Vita Lifting Systems on order. Vita is thrilled to have HOLT as the first distributor in their national reseller network. HOLT will represent Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.
Vita’s CEO and President, Caleb Carr, shared his elation on the company’s biggest milestone since its inception in 2015: “I’m very excited to see the direction Vita is headed. With the support and shared excitement from HOLT, this is a big win on both fronts. I can’t wait to see our technology on job sites and saving lives.”
