Kion Group investing €11m in fuel cells for forklift trucks

The Kion Group is investing €11m in developing fuel cell systems for its industrial trucks and developing its own hydrogen production on site.

The group plans to launch its own 24 V fuel cell system for warehouse equipment this spring.

This means that the group’s brands will soon be able to offer their customers everything from a single source: the forklift, fuel cells, and associated service.
