About Dematic


Dematic is solving fascinating and important problems in supply chain. They’re answering questions like; How do we minimize our customers’ impact on the environment? How do we make it easier for people to work comfortably in a warehouse? How do we ensure your online orders are delivered quickly? They are finding the answers and solutions to these questions, and many more, with bleeding edge hardware and software.

Dematic was founded in 1819 in Germany and since then, through acquisitions and organic growth, they’ve built a company and product offering that offers state-of-the-art and end-to-end technologies and solutions. In 2016 Dematic was acquired by KION (the second largest global forklift producer) for 3.3 Billion. This has allowed Dematic to still function as an innovative and growing technology business, while having access to funds and leveraging KION’s substantial customer-base.
