KION Warehouse Systems
KION Warehouse Systems GmbH (KWS) specializes in warehouse trucks for use in very narrow aisles and in high-bay storage areas. The systems engineering trucks developed and manufactured in Reutlingen are recognized for their high standard of technology. Using its configuration software, KWS designs trucks on a modular basis that are tailored to customers' individual requirements and therefore cannot be classified as a specific type of truck. The manually operated trucks can also be partly or fully automated.
KION Warehouse Systems is an internal service provider for the Group, offering technical support for the commissioning of very narrow aisle (VNA) trucks. The VNA Academy trains technicians and service employees from the dealers and branches.
