“We are simply better together”

The KION has successfully completed the acquisition of Dematic. The two companies complement one another with strong market positions and regional presence.


Together we have innovative technology, software expertise and global reach to meet the supply chain demands of the future: like the massive e-commerce and on-demand-deliveries. We are simply better together. We will become a better option for our customers, with a more complete product line and the availability of product and services that no other company can provide.

We of course want to grow the company. With the presence that Dematic has in North America, and with the presence that we have in Europe and in China, our vision to become really the source for supply chain solutions, industrial trucks and services on a global basis is a vision that carries us beyond the year 2020 into really shaping this industry.
