Having acquired automation specialist Dematic, the KION Group is expanding its production capacity with a new plant in the Czech Republic. The existing KION site in Stříbro is to be extended to include a factory for automated conveyor systems, which will cover an area of 23,000 m2. The €7 million factory should be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017 and is expected to employ around 200 people.

It will serve the European market, manufacturing multishuttles and modular conveyor systems for Dematic’s automated storage and retrieval systems. These modular components can be combined in different ways to offer a wide range of functionality and can be tailored exactly to the particular needs of customers.
