Knight Industries began in 1984 as a specialty design and build shop with three employees and 4,000 square feet of floor space, solving specific manufacturing problems for the automotive industry in the Detroit area. As specialty systems became standards for Knight, we evolved into designing and replacing original material handling systems with ergonomic solutions nationwide. Our ergonomic material handling solutions quickly became a name in the workplace because we provided standard and proven product designs with custom development to the end-user's application requirements.
In 2008, Knight Industries began facilitating the material handling needs of the world's manufacturing industry and officially changed the company name to Knight Global. Since then, Knight has become a major global supplier of ergonomic equipment that accommodates consumer requests for state-of-the-art technology worldwide. Our clients
include a diverse group of industries that include automotive, aviation, department of defense, food and beverage, construction, textile, and entertainment firm's to name a few.
Today, Knight Global headquarters is located in Auburn Hills, Michigan and has grown to over 250 employees and 172,000 square feet of floor space. We design, manufacture, and build every application at one location. The need for outsourcing equipment or supplies is not a requirement at Knight.
