In this function, he will actively strengthen the assistance and support of new customers in the core sectors healthcare, food, industry, retail and fashion, and place new emphasis in the customer service area.

Famous companies such as grocery giants Migros and LeShop, or international pharmaceutical companies such as Amedis and Voight, are among KNAPP’s customers in Switzerland. “KNAPP specializes in warehouse automation and warehouse automation software and has comprehensive knowledge of the industry. Thanks to rapid growth in the e-commerce sector, and the associated demands made on the supply chain, we expect strong growth in Switzerland. With our new location, we want to even better support our new and existing customers,” explained Hermann Wirth.


The intralogistics provider KNAPP with headquarters in Hart bei Graz, Austria, recorded strong growth in the past years.

Each year, the KNAPP Group invests around 30 million euros in research and development. With about 3,000 employees, the group generated a turnover of 582 million euros in the past business year.
