KION Kone Cranes

With Rob Smith the former COE of Kone Cranes now the CEO of KION Might KION Purchase the Kone Cranes forklift and Reach stacker Business. KION got out of large forklifts, empty container handling forklift and reach stackers when they sold their heavy truck division to Kone. But might they now buy the hole of Kone Cranes forklift and reach stacker business.

With the Cargotec Konecranes merger now not happening, and Kalmar pulling out of the Ship to Shore and Yard crane business. Will Konecranes look at the same and pull out of the forklift and reach stacker business.


Leaving the door open to merge again in a couple of years


Or will one of these companies disapeer altogether

Well I hope he doesn't bring Kones sales team ethics into Kion or they are finished, I had some dealings with Kone and trying to get someone to commit, turn up, even acknowledge a £35000 potential order for a customer of ours.
Just gave up with them in the end.

Our intermediary firm has worked through KION and I can say that the company can continue to cooperate if it wants to, but the technical aspects are discussed at director level. And a lot of it is not dependent on their willingness, but on their ability to finance orders and deliver on time. Acquiring a forklift probably depends on the volume of deliveries, as the company has to meet the plan for availability and availability of machinery. We work with https://www.agcranes.com/gantry-cranes-uk/ and also pre-order forklifts to load and ship a batch of goods. Hopefully the current economic climate will remain behind us and production will not stop.

You don't have a business - in order to do business you need to deliver product or service to an end user and they pay you USD or Euros or Pounds. or etc. So far you haven built # unit or have exhibited a prototype #1. You have only produce black and white words on this forum w/ kisses & promise but no cigar = lack of credibility. Maybe "Some Day Your Prince Will Come" too.

When and where can i get ammonia fueling services for your super truck in the Dallas , Fort worth area? The DEA keeps a close tab on this stuff as it seems to be used in the production of illegal drugs.

You claim you know about our business, but the reality is you know nothing. In fact you don't know much about anything to do with sustainability. You probably believe that battery electric will be the future, now your beloved Hyster have finally realised hydrogen is just to expensive to work. Shame it's taken them till now to realise, if they now survive they will be lucky.So now they are just following into battery electric.

FYI This dude once said that his company was send a fleet of ammonia eating truck to the east coast beaches (in North America. I asked him - actually not this newer screen name but of those 'exalted one' screen names when he was in the UAE. Back on track His response is that part of the deal was there would be a fleet of ammonia fuel trucks to keep them up running up and down I-95. I said " Oh Really" Apparently he has never been to the NY/NJ area during a traffic jam - which is an every day event. Guess he figures that the end user is willing to wait and be happy when these are just "chilling around" and doing nothing waiting for a fuel truck because this truck is better than "sliced bread" - so he claims - but yet ain't produced on except a Lego model for a video. Guess the term B S Artist might apply.
Maybe he has been busy working on one of those perpetual motion machines too based on the gyroscope concept but better - had one of those gyros when I was a kid at several at Great Greek restaurant by the Houston, Texas port that was close to the Budweiser plant.
