Frankfurt, May 11, 2021 - At its Annual General Meeting, KION GROUP AG reflected on a financial year in which the Group managed to navigate the coronavirus pandemic in robust shape: "The KION Group has remained on course even through choppy waters. Our structure is resilient and we operate with a focus on the future," said Gordon Riske, Chief Executive Officer of KION GROUP AG, in his report to shareholders. The encouraging results for the first quarter of 2021, published by the Group at the end of April, provide very solid foundations for the current year. "Our KION 2027 strategy, our resilient financial position, and our flexibility in capitalizing on market potential are paying off," emphasized Riske. "We are now better positioned than ever and remain on track for growth."
The CEO paid tribute to the hard work of the Group's more than 36,000 employees in the last financial year: "The pandemic has also brought tremendous personal challenges and stresses for our employees. I am therefore all the more impressed by the extraordinary commitment of our teams. In a situation unlike anything that anyone of us had ever experienced, we all pulled together." Riske added that it had been an enormous challenge to keep the Group's supply chains going in order to ensure that it was ultimately able to deliver to its customers. "And sometimes, we are still having to operate in difficult circumstances when we provide services to our customers, and when we install new systems and bring them on line," Riske pointed out.
