Kitagawa NorthTech Inc. has acquired the exclusive distribution, sales and marketing rights for Kawatatec Nobel branded chucks for North America. Nobel chucks are popular in oil and gas country applications because of their forged steel bodies, large bore size, time-tested performance and reliability in these demanding applications, the company says.

Kevin Bennett, V.P. of sales and marketing, says, “Kitagawa and Kawatatec are two like-minded companies. We both share a similar heritage and approach to design, manufacturing principles and quality standards, so we believed the Nobel brand to be an excellent addition to join our family of workholding solutions.”

Kitagawa NorthTech earlier this year absorbed ITEX Workholding operations, which previously held the distribution rights for Nobel Chucks in North America.
