The KION Group is a global player operating in many customer sectors and enjoys established relationships with its customers. It has been able to extend these relationships through joint development projects and other initiatives. In addition, cross-brand and cross-segment marketing and sales activities aim to unlock potential for cross-selling between individual product categories.

The Company’s stand at the 2023 LogiMAT logistics trade fair in Stuttgart also reflected this cross-brand approach. Dematic, STILL, and Linde Material Handling showcased various product innovations and demonstrated in a joint presentation how components such as pallet stackers, palletizers and depalletizers, and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) can be integrated in one solution in order to manage material flows in a fully automated manner.

STILL also presented the KION Group’s VDA 5050 control system for automated guided vehicle systems at the 2023 IFOY Test Days and at the automatica trade fair in Munich.

Last but not least, the KION Group brand companies won further accolades for their product quality and innovation. Dematic was named ‘Voice Partner of the Year’ in Australia and New Zealand by Honeywell, while STILL’s hand-operated pallet truck series EXH-14-20-Plus picked up an IFOY award in the ‘warehouse trucks lowlifter’ category in 2023.
