About Kata
Nitzan Kimchi and Dror Tishler, founders of KATA, became acquainted with sophisticated military equipment during their service in an elite combat unit. Subsequently, they developed and offered solutions for themselves and other special units for over a decade. In 1992, in response to an increased demand for their products, and following an extended process of product development, they decided to establish KATA.

In a very short period of time, KATA evolved from an R&D laboratory to a company that develops, manufactures and markets thousands of products to hundreds of clients becoming a leader in its field.

Over time, KATA recruited experienced and professional staff. These professionals assumed key roles in the departments of R&D, Marketing and Management. This core group is the driving force behind KATA's progress.

In 2005 KATA joined the VITEC Group plc www.vitecgroup.com and under its Imaging Division the company has expanded and flourished world wide working together with its sister companies; Manfrotto, Gitzo, Avenger and others. Today Kata is a well known and respected brand in the Video and Photo market, which is distributed in over one hundred countries around the world.
