Our History

The Willamette Ersted Company was founded in 1929 in Portland, Oregon and was renamed Hyster around 1934. The name "Hyster" comes from the term "Hoist'er," which loggers once used whenever a load was about to be lifted. The towing winch was one of their first products.

Allied acquired Hyster winches in 1990. We have maintained Hyster's commitment to quality while introducing new, technologically advanced winch models. In response to changing dozer technology, our winch product offering now includes industry leading PTO and hydraulic winches.
