History

A Heritage of Innovation and Evolution

Our origins date back to the 1880s when we introduced the “card index system” in the USA. Today Kardex Remstar specializes in the development, manufacture, and refinement of dynamic storage and retrieval systems for a number of applications in the area of intralogistics.

Both our company and range of products have changed considerably over the years; one thing that has stayed the same, however, is our innovative and creative corporate culture. This is one of the reasons why we have already been able to successfully install more than 140,000 systems together with suitable software packages all over the world. All of these solutions have been tailored to our customers’ needs in line with the latest demands of the market.

Since 1987 Kardex Remstar has been part of Kardex AG, which is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange in Zurich.
