KION's new Polish production facility
KION Group has announced plans for the construction of a new industrial truck plant in Kobaskowo, near Szczecin in Poland. Capital expenditure on this project will amount to over EUR60 million (USD665 million), and KION will be creating more than 150 jobs at the site by 2023.

Construction on the plant will commence this year, with the site set to come onstream in early 2021. The 18 ha site will incorporate a cutting-edge production facility, a research and development centre, and an administrative centre covering almost 44,000 sqm.

The additional plant in Poland will complement KION's existing production facilities across Europe and cater to "customers with less intensive utilisation in the EMEA region".

"The new site in the heart of Europe will allow us to make further inroads into this fast-moving, high-potential market," says Gordon Riske, KION CEO. "The location near the German-Polish border has the additional benefit of easy access to an excellent network of suppliers."

The plant in Kobaskowo will produce Linde counterbalance trucks for loads up to 3.5 T, including model series which are currently manufactured in Aschaffenburg (Germany) and Xiamen (China).

The KION Group aims to take even more advantage of growth in the intralogistics sector in the EMEA region through its Linde brand company. "The site in Kobaskowo will provide us with the perfect springboard. The more than 150 new employees will benefit from a state-of-the-art working environment and the new research and development centre will open up further opportunities," says Riske.
