All products in the range are formulated with Kimberlite clay, extracted in Corguinho, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.

Before we actually get started with large scale production, we begin to introduce Kion products at international fairs, and the level of acceptance has been so high, we were exporting before we got to commercialization in Brazil,” explains Luciano Didier, Director of Development of International Business.
