Company profile

Independent material handling experts estimate KAUP as one of the leading European manufacturers of attachments for forklift trucks. More than 800 employees produce over 40.000 attachments per year. The attachment range is a modular build programme and is deemed to be the most versatile existing on the market. It allows a combination of the functions sideshifting, clamping and/or rotating with only slight modifications. Main products of the KAUP range are sideshifters, fork positioners in different versions, rotators, clamps for every handling duty, rotating clamps and a huge variety of multi pallet handlers. Additional attachments like telescopic forks, reach forks, push-pulls, crane jibs, carrying rams and buckets or snow plough plates complete the program. The attachments can be combined for solving special material handling tasks easily, e.g. turning pallets or drums. Further products in the KAUP range are container spreaders and stationary handling equipment.
