Kion expands capacity for Dematic

The Kion Group is increasing capacity for Dematic, which it acquired last year, by expanding its site in Stříbro, Czech Republic.

The Kion facility will be extended with a new, 247,500 sq ft factory for conveyor systems.

“The factory is, at the same time, a sign of the huge progress that we are making on the integration of Dematic as a new member of the Kion family,” said Gordon Riske, chief executive officer, the Kion Group.

The company is to invest around €7 million in the factory – and it is expected to complete later this year.
