Since the end of 2018, Motoman robots have been manufactured there by Yaskawa from purely European sources. The investment volume is around 25 million euros. The new plant complements the existing production facilities in Japan and China and will cover about 80 percent of the European demand for Motoman robots.
Our goal is to shorten supply chains and delivery times in order to respond more quickly to regional market requirements and customer wishes – not only with the new plant, but also with a large European robotics development center,” said Masahiro Ogawa, Executive Officer YASKAWA electric Corp. and General Manager Robotics Division, at the opening ceremony. And Bruno Schnekenburger, CEO & President, YASKAWA Europe added: “With this investment we want to further expand our proximity to customers in Europe and accompany them even more closely on their way to Industry 4.0, not least through first-class customer service”.
