Kardex acquires shares in technology start-up Rocket Solution

Kardex invests in the start-up company Rocket Solution GmbH, founded in 2019 and based in Unterhaching near Munich. The company develops innovative, standardized automatic storage and retrieval systems of the latest generation. These systems consist of dynamic storage vehicles (Rocket Shuttles) that operate within the rack and provide bins and trays to be stored at the system interfaces. The innovative technology features open IoT and Web interfaces and can therefore be easily integrated into complete systems.

Kardex CEO Jens Fankhänel underlines: "With the technology of Rocket Solution, Kardex is taking another step towards standardized sub-systems and expanding its portfolio in the strategically important light goods area. By investing in this young, innovative company, we also expect new impulses for Kardex especially for the implementation of our IoT strategy."
