100% Kivnon Experience
Kivnon commences its activity in December 2009 with a team of engineers who possess extensive experience in the automation and mobile robotics sector.
The Kivnon brand is officially registered and manufacturing of our first AGV model, the AGV Mouse K10, begins. The first two models in this series are deployed at the Johnson Controls production plant in Barcelona (Spain).
Exports and marketing of our products in the European market begins. Our first international project is successfully carried out in Italy at the Johnson Controls manufacturing plants in Melfi, Cicerale and Rocca d’Evandro.
As a result of our products’ widespread acceptance, Kivnon installs its AGVs in a Ford production plant in Valencia (Spain). This is our first time working with a car manufacturer.
Kivnon expands its operating radius in Europe and cracks the markets in Germany, Sweden, and France.
Our product portfolio expands with the development of the AGV Tractor K20 model and our activity is diversified with the first AGVs for the pharmaceutical industry. In Europe, we continue advancing with the distribution of AGVs in the Czech Republic and by taking part in the international Hannover Messe trade fair in Germany for the first time.
This is an important year for the company: Kivnon consolidates its position as a leading AGV supplier in the automotive industry, collaborating with major manufacturers, such as SEAT, Opel, and Renault. Two new products are developed: the AGV Mouse K11 TWO-WAY and the AGV Tractor K32. In addition, five omnidirectional AGVs are designed specifically for container transport. In terms of our diversification endeavors, the first AGVs for the food industry are marketed in Austria.
We develop an AGV with artificial vision and we undertake our first collaboration project with the company ABB to design the AGV Collaborative Robot, whose collaborative robot is found on board the AGV. To strengthen our brand nationally, we showcase our services and latest innovations in mobile robotics at the Logistics fair in Madrid: the AGV K11 TWO-WAY, the AGV K32, the AGV Collaborative Robot, and the AGV Artificial Vision.
Another key year for Kivnon: our internationalization plan is launched. The founding of our first foreign subsidiary, Kivnon Deutschland GmbH, in Germany, coincides with us marketing our first AGVs in the United Kingdom, Slovakia, Romania and Mexico. In Spain, we become the leading AGV supplier for Renault’s Valladolid plant and we develop a new product, the AGV K05 Twister.
The Kivnon Group is born, under the name of Kivnon Global, S.L., encompassing the companies 2000 DCLane, Kivnon Logística, Kivnon Deutschland and Kivnon Slovakia. To increase our production capacity, we transfer our head office to Barberà del Vallès where we have a production plant covering 6,000m2. Immersed in our internationalization plan, we open a new subsidiary in Slovakia – Kivnon Slovakia s.r.o. – and we begin marketing our products in Hungary.
Following the success of our AGVs on the American continent, we open new subsidiaries in the United States, Mexico, and Brazil. At the same time, we strengthen our presence in Europe by opening a new subsidiary in the United Kingdom and we take part in the Logimat fair in Germany, presenting our latest development, the AGV K41 Slim. In Spain, Kivnon is recognized by the PIMEC association as 2018’s most competitive SME.
At the American fair Modex, we present our product portfolio and open the new North American office. In Europe, we continue promoting Kivnon’s presence by opening a subsidiary in France, just south of Paris.
A great vision can never be achieved without great people.SEE ALL VACANCIES
