The Salute to Manufacturing awards closed out the S.C. Manufacturing Conference & Expo held this week at the Charleston Area Convention Center in North Charleston. The award winners were announced during a special luncheon following the two-day conference and a keynote address by Gov. Henry McMaster.
McMaster presented the awards to 12 companies in several categories. Kion North America was announced as the recipient of the Outreach Award for their efforts in the tri-country area through volunteerism and their Lifting Up the Lowcountry initiative.
In 2018, Kion North America implemented a corporate social responsibility initiative called Lifting Up the Lowcountry, focused on education and workplace development; safety and environmental sustainability; and building a stronger community.
Headquartered in Summerville, Kion designs, builds, delivers and supports a comprehensive product range of liquid petroleum gas, diesel and electric lift trucks.
