KION North America is excited to announce the formation of the KION North America Dealer Advisory Council. With high expectations for growth of the Linde and Baoli brand of trucks, a strong partnership between KION North America and our dealer network is essential. The advisory council provides a format for dealer representatives to gather with KION North America executive management and provide the voice of the dealer network regarding topics critical to our mutual success and growth.

In addition to providing input to KION North America management, the council will also develop and share best practices amongst themselves, which will also be communicated throughout the dealer network. It is our goal to work more closely with the KION North America dealer network to evaluate and understand the needs of the end customer and our dealer partners so that we can collaborate and execute the best strategy for maximum
sustainable growth.

Vincent Halma, president and CEO of KION North America, said, “There is always an open door for our dealers to communicate directly with KION North America management. The council provides us the opportunity to gather several times a year and discuss topics that are important to our dealers and end customers. We are pleased that so many people share our passion to grow the business and invest in the KION North America network of
