Our services

We are all-in-one mobile automation provider.

We are the all in one mobile automation provider that delivers Automated Guides Vehicles (AGV), Automated Mobile Robots (AMR), products and solutions, hardware and software for every conceivable application. Whether stand-alone or fully integrated, whether North America, Europe or Asia, whether small batch or large fleet - KION Mobile Automation drives it all.

The rapid growth of e-commerce is one of the drivers of the world economy and our Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) & Automated Mobile Robots (AMR) business. Global value chains and supply chains require considerable capital expenditure on warehousing and logistics. Automated supply chain solutions are becoming increasingly important since in many sectors efficient intralogistics are now a decisive factor in a company’s competitiveness.

We develop and implement products, standardized solutions and processes that can keep pace with this growth. That boost our customers' business instead of slowing it down. That meet all requirements even exceed expectations – today as well as in the future.

For us, reliability is not just a matter of trust, but a hard fact. Our products and solutions have been proven and successfully in use for decades. We guarantee not only a smooth changeover without downtimes, but also maximum utilisation in ongoing operations - which is why we contractually guarantee our partners an uptime of 98%. We like to be measured ... and preferably by the success and satisfaction of our customers!

What we tackle works. Close to 10.000 installed units have covered more than 350 million kilometres and reaching 4 billion moved pallets to date.

And the success story continues: 200 successfully running projects and over 500 newly installed Automated Guides Vehicles (AGVs) in the last year prove that our customers can rightly rely on us.

One secret of our outstanding performance is the combined expertise, experience and efficiency that we are able to achieve with our KION brands Linde Material Handling , STILL and Dematic .

To improve our performance even further and maintain our claim to leadership in the long term, we are constantly on the lookout for the best talents and experienced professionals in the fields of robotics, software and project engineering. So even "the experience company" is constantly learning and getting better every day.

When we come to the question of what customer satisfaction means, the answer is: it depends!

That's why we listen carefully and learn to understand our customers' wishes, needs and goals. Every day anew. Because only then can we develop and implement exactly the products, solutions and processes that in the end really lead to satisfaction on a large and small scale - whether it's reliability, scalability, increased efficiency, increased profits or simply a happy smile.
