Forklift and warehouse trucks are high-tech products manufactured using innovative technologies and procedures. The KION Group's highly motivated employees use state-of-the-art equipment to create products with a uniform level of quality. Consistent lean production standards are applied across the KION brands. The planning, organization, and deployment of staff and materials are all geared to ensuring a high degree of efficiency.
Thanks to systematic lean management, the KION Group's brands ensure the quality of their industrial trucks, maximum productivity, and a high level of flexibility that allows them to fulfill customers' individual requirements (customized options) efficiently. Production processes in the plants are constantly optimized to enable operational excellence, which means using as few resources as possible to manufacture flawless products with the highest possible quality and the greatest possible customer satisfaction.
Work areas and processes in the new production facilities have been designed according to strict lean production criteria. The plants are increasingly using mixed assembly lines: whereas one model series would have been built on a line previously, several series are now built on the same line.
