There’s no doubt that rolling out a new strategy must be challenging. Even more so when you’re a leading market player and everyone watches your every move.
This week we report on KION’s restructure and it’s refreshing to note the openness of the company in its announcement.
KION is currently the second-largest forklift supplier in a market that has been shaken by mergers and acquisitions, dogged by slow economic growth and challenged by the emergence of strong competition from Asia.
We’ll all watch the changes with interest, especially in the new year, when the two current mega-mergers start to impact on the market.

"You found the point with 80 volt trucks. The battery is more expensive! Yes a 80 volt might perform a little better and might be a little more efficient but you will never notice with 100 hrs a year. A 48 volt truck will do fine.".
