The new modern factory of industrial trolleys in Kołbaskowo near Szczecin will produce counterbalanced forklifts for all brands in the KION Industrial Trucks & Services segment.
The plant’s goal is to increase their degree of automation and digitization. With a view to accelerating deliveries, from next year, Kołbaskowo will also produce series of models currently produced only in Xiamen, China.
“The new plant in the heart of Europe is an excellent opportunity to contribute to the economic development of this rapidly growing market segment”, says Gordon Riske, CEO of KION GROUP AG. – The location near the Polish-German border has the additional advantage of convenient access to an excellent network of suppliers.
This also applies to the model series that have so far been produced at plants in Western Europe.
