KION North America Supports American Red Cross Disaster Relief Efforts

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — In September, KION North America Corporation employees donated $2,500 to the American Red Cross in support of Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The company matched the donation 100% with a second donation in the same amount to the American Red Cross in support of the Hurricane Maria relief efforts.

“Being based in the South Carolina Lowcountry, we have experienced our fair share of run-ins with weather events including hurricanes and flooding,” said Vincent Halma, president and CEO of KION North America. “Though in recent history we have not experienced devastation of the magnitude created by these two particular storms, we can certainly empathize with those who have been affected.”
