A Heritage of Innovation and Evolution

Our origins go back to the 1880s, when we introduced the  "Card Index System" in the USA.


Over time, our company and product ranges have changed greatly. However, our creative culture has not. We continue to build upon the long list of industry firsts, which include the typewriter, calculator and filing cabinet.

Today, Kardex Remstar manufactures computer controlled automated storage and retrieval systems for a wide range of applications.


With more than 140,000 successfully installed solutions worldwide, our extensive customer base is a fitting reflection of the hard work and dedication of our staff.


Since 1987 Kardex Remstar has been part of Kardex AG which is quoted on the Zurich stock exchange.
