General Terms and Conditions of Purchase



YLOG Industry Solutions (today KNAPP Industry Solutions) is founded in November 2013 as a 100 % subsidiary of KNAPP AG. With the flexible YLOG-Shuttle, the KNAPP group expands its sector focus to include the areas industry and production.

The Dobl Business Park, south of Graz, is chosen as location.

This first period is characterized by employee recruitment and visits of potential customers. It quickly becomes obvious that the space would soon be insufficient and plans for a new building are immediately begun. A carport for motorhomes is converted into a production hall with adjacent offices. In January 2014, the 910 m² production hall is ready for occupation. In June 2014, the 20 employees move into their new offices, 560 m² on two floors. At the end of 2014, this area, including the expansion area, is acquired by KNAPP AG.

2014 also witnesses the redesign of the YLOG-Shuttle 3.0 and the development of the KiSoft YIS software.

In 2015, YLOG Industry Solutions is rebranded KNAPP Industry Solutions and the number of employees steadily increases.

Projects are implemented at NOCH, Weisser, Sonepar and ENGEL AUSTRIA GmbH.

In 2016, the Business Unit Industry Solutions is founded and placed under the responsibility of KNAPP Industry Solutions. The Dobl subsidiary is the specialist within the KNAPP group for all-in-one logistics solutions for industrial, production and distribution logistics.

In addition to the YLOG-Shuttle, the free-moving Open Shuttles are now produced at the location and are completely integrated into the solution portfolio for the core business area industry. The product portfolio of the Open Shuttles is continuously developed and expanded during this year.

2017 is an eventful year.

Economic growth translates into growth in the number of employees and the expansion of the Dobl location as the KNAPP campus. A five-storey office building is erected in a short time and a building addition expands the production hall. The location currently offers space for 300 employees. Dobl is the centre for intelligent technologies and innovative products for industry solutions. The location is ideally situated with good infrastructure. Young startup companies in the KNAPP group are strategically grouped together at one location to encourage the use of synergies and the development of innovative solutions.

In the world of 3D capable shuttle systems, the YLOG-Shuttle is replaced by the innovative OSR Shuttle™ Evo.

2017 sees the acquisition of terrific projects at VW and Porsche and an innovative zero defect production solution at Pankl Racing.

In 2018, KNAPP Industry Solutions GmbH has 75 employees. Several Open Shuttle projects are realized including one at Airbus.

During my studies, I completed an internship at one of the other subsidiaries and had the opportunity to write my bachelor thesis. It was through this internship that I gained access to the KNAPP organization and could work at KNAPP Industry Solutions while studying for my master’s degree. During this period, the company showed me a lot of understanding and flexibility.

I have been responsible for marketing now for three years and can work at my full potential in my job.

KNAPP Industry Solutions stands out as a reliable and flexible employer. When I decided to embark on a degree in software development three years ago, they were quick to offer me the opportunity to change to a department in this line of work and to adapt my hours to my degree.

Over the last few years, this combination of work and study has provided me with huge benefits in both areas. KNAPP has supported me every step of the way.
