Kuenz is nominated for the ,,Business Oscar“:

Almost at the same time with the Academy Awards, the so called “Business Oscar” will be awarded in the US on February 7th. Nominated in the category "Trendsetter": the Künz GmbH

Every year, the Los Angeles department of the Austrian Chamber of Commerce (WKÖ) honors outstanding achievements of Austrian companies with the award. Celebrating the tenth anniversary, 26 Austrian companies are competing for the coveted awards in the categories start-up, investment, innovation, market footprint, trendsetter and spectacular. In the Trendsetter category, Kuenz is nominated for the globally unique automation concept at the CSX terminal in Fairburn, Georgia. Six fully automated Intermodal Cranes serve a total of 7 tracks, 9 container stacks and 500 truck loading lanes. In addition to the efficient handling of the increasing container throughput, the highest level of personal safety is achieved, since all manual interventions are only carried out via remote operating station in the terminal building. In addition, thanks to the innovative process, the productivity of crane operations has been increased by 2.5 hours a day. The US-A-BIZ-AWARD gala will take place on February 7th at the Red Bull North America headquarters in Santa Monica, Los Angeles.
