Linde Material Handling grew out of a diversified German industrial organisation with roots going back more than 125 years. From the outset it had been associated with the highest standards of engineering brilliance, attracting famous employees including Rudolf Diesel.
By the 1960s, the Linde Group had established itself on the world market for industrial equipment, especially forklifts, setting new standards for productivity, thanks in large part to its development and adoption of hydrostatic drive.
From the outset the hydrostatically driven forklift had a smooth ride, simple, precise handling, low wear and high safety. It set benchmarks which competitors are still struggling to match.
In the course of ongoing product development, Linde integrated the hydrostatic drive, hydraulic pump, hydraulic motor and gearbox into one compact axle and a forklift design with fewer parts to wear out.
The company expanded its material handling equipment globally by new product development and strategic acquisitions in Europe and the United States and in 2006 became part of the KION Group, a worldwide leading provider of forklifts, warehouse equipment and other industrial trucks.
Today Linde is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of forklifts and warehouse equipment and is the market leader in Europe.
Linde Material Handling Australia is a wholly owned subsidiary of the German manufacturer.
