KION North America launches KION NA Cares Initiative

This year, KION North America has implemented a new corporate social responsibility initiative called KION NA Cares. The goal and purpose of this initiative are to demonstrate a high-level of commitment to improving the community and sustaining the environment.

KION NA Cares focuses on three segments: education and workplace development; safety and environmental sustainability; and building a stronger community.

On April 13, KION NA Cares participated in its first event-“a beach clean-up at Folly Beach County Park in collaboration with the South Carolina Aquarium and Charleston County Parks. Over the course of two hours, a team of 20 employees collected 229 pieces of trash and built 450 linear feet of fence around the sand dunes.

-Corporate social responsibility extends beyond the four walls of our facility in Summerville,- said David Brown, director of human resources at KION North America. -Our intent with the KION NA Cares initiative is to give our employees the opportunity to be stewards of their community.-

Future KION NA Cares events are already scheduled including volunteer teams to serve at the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston and Lowcountry Food Bank, as well as a stuff-the-truck event to benefit Dorchester Habitat for Humanity.
