Company Profile of the KION Group


We keep the world moving.

The KION Group has a global presence with products, services and solutions provided by its six brand companies. The KION Group is the European market leader and the world's second largest manufacturer of forklift trucks and warehouse technology, and it is one of the leading international suppliers in the sector in China. The Linde and STILL brands serve the premium segment worldwide, while Baoli focuses on the value and economy segments. Fenwick is the material-handling market leader in France, OM STILL is a market leader in Italy and Voltas is one of the two market leaders in India.

But these strong foundations were not the only thing that enabled the KION Group to generate revenue of around €4.5 billion in 2013. The key factor was our workforce of more than 22,000 people, who go the extra mile for our customers every day.

We stand for sustainable, profitable growth through focusing on a clearly defined business segment.


KION: The Name

… and what it means

The word "Kion" is taken from the language of the Massai. In the tongue of the East African warriors and nomads, "Kion(gozi)" means "Take the leadership".

KION in Chinese

In Chinese, KION means “Proud of the victory”.

This expresses a core principle of the KION Group: In many countries, as in all of Europe, KION is the number one - the KION Group sets its strategy according to the values of leadership, innovation and performance in order to further develop its technological and market leadership.

KION places value on the traditional strengths of material handling, with more than 100 years experience, to ensure that it continues to provide innovative logistics solutions for its customers in the future.
