Kitagawa NorthTech Inc. has acquired the exclusive distribution, sales and marketing rights for Kawatatec Nobel chucks for North America. Due to their rugged build and extremely large size, the Nobel brand of chucks have become associated with oil-and-gas applications over the last three decades.

Nobel Chucks are popular in oil-and-gas applications because of their unique features, forged steel bodies, large bore size, performance and reliability in demanding applications.

“Kitagawa and Kawatatec are two like-minded companies,” says Kevin Bennett, vice president of sales and marketing of the former. “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 ever expanding 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. Mike Roberts, Principal of Itex, joined Kitagawa NorthTech to provide continuity in selling Nobel products and to take advantage of his oil-and-gas industry experience. He currently serves as Regional Sales Manager for Kitagawa NorthTech throughout the Southwest United States.
