KION is expanding through Vitan Equipment

KION North America has expanded its territory into western Michigan with Vitan Equipment, a division of Fraza. In addition to this expansion, Vitan Equipment has opened a new dealer location in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to help support this new territory.

All Vitan Equipment locations are authorised to sell KION North America's complete portfolio of Linde Material Handling and Baoli brands.

"We are excited about Vitan Equipment's expansion into western Michigan, including adding another location to support this growth further," says KION director of dealer development Rick Schiel. "The Linde Material Handling and Baoli brands are trusted worldwide, and this territory growth will strengthen customer support in western Michigan and beyond."

Fraza has over 80 years of experience in the materials handling industry and its Vitan Equipment division continues that heritage of superior service throughout western Michigan.

All Vitan Equipment locations specialise in new and used forklifts and forklift parts, sales, rentals and service, with brands like Clark, Sellick and Aisle Master alongside its KION offerings.

"We're thrilled to partner with KION North America to bring Linde Material Handling products to our customers in western Michigan," says Vitan Equipment CEO Roger Runyan. "From pallet jacks all the way to autonomous guided forklifts (AGFs), the Linde Material Handling product line provides a breadth of equipment to serve any operation's safety, efficiency, and productivity needs. We're proud to be representing this stellar brand as part of our end-to-end warehouse solutions."
