The roots of Linde Material Handling date back to the beginning of the 20th century. Together with Hugo Güldner and Georg von Krauss, Carl von Linde founded the Güldner-Motoren-Gesellschaft in Munich in 1904. Three years later the company moved to Aschaffenburg. In 1929, the Gesellschaft für Linde's Eismaschinen AG, founded by Carl von Linde in 1879, took over the Güldner-Motoren-Gesellschaft. In 1955, the development of the first vehicle with a hydrostatic drive and, in 1960, the development of the first truck with this drive concept, laid the foundation for Linde's rise to become one of the world's largest manufacturers of forklift trucks and warehouse equipment.
