We Are Always Looking Ahead
Rite-Hite first rose to prominence as a manufacturer of loading dock equipment, including dock levelers and vehicle restraint systems. One of the early breakthroughs was the development of the DOK-LOK® trailer restraint in 1980, a proprietary design that effectively prevents trailer separation and quickly gained widespread adoption worldwide.
In 1987, Rite-Hite established Arbon Equipment Corporation, a subsidiary comprising over 700 dedicated employees serving customers in the United States, Canada, and Australia. Arbon offers expert consultation on a wide range of products and services, catering to customers with varying dock requirements, from single installations to large-scale operations.
In 1991, Rite-Hite acquired Frommelt Industries, significantly broadening its offering to include industrial power doors, cold storage doors, impact doors, dock seals and shelters, and a full complement of aftermarket products.
Rite-Hite’s longstanding reputation for safety, quality and innovation has been enhanced through the constant introduction of unique products for the industrial facility. At the loading dock, Rite-Hite has pioneered advancements such as the hydraulic dock leveler with Safe-T-Lip®; the Global Wheel-Lok™ wheel restraint; the Dok-Guardian™; and the Eclipse™ loading dock shelter. Inside the facility, Rite-Hite offers include the FasTrax® and LiteSpeed® high speed doors; the Revolution® HVLS industrial fan, ZoneWorks® Industrial Curtain Walls, In-Plant Safety Barriers, and the Safe-T-Signal®. Rite-Hite has also expanded its portfolio to include Loading Dock and Yard Management Software, Scraper System™ Fleet Plows snow removal machines, and most recently, Automation Solutions at the loading dock.
An additional company that is part of the Rite-Hite family is DuctSox. DuctSox is a manufacturer of commercial and industrial fabric ductwork and diffuser systems for open/finished ceiling architecture, critical environments, and underfloor applications. DuctSox fabric systems are a cost effective, aesthetically attractive alternative to metal ductwork and diffusers. DuctSox is based in Dubuque, Iowa.
