Aethon experienced strong demand for its robotic solutions from the more established hospital market as well as strong demand from the rapidly developing industrial market.

Aldo Zini, CEO of Aethon, says: “We are seeing strong interest in the TUG autonomous mobile robot across multiple industry sectors and geographies. Hospitals continue to look for solutions that lower operating costs while improving support to their care delivery teams.

“In addition, we are seeing rapidly growing demand to fully automate material transport and delivery in manufacturing, distribution and hospitality.

“We are working closely with new customers in the automotive and electronics manufacturing industries to enable their advanced manufacturing capabilities and help support the move to Industry 4.0.

“As a world leader in autonomous mobile robot deployments it is exciting to see the great potential of this technology become more widely adopted.”

Aethon’s growth comes as a result of a broad shift toward greater automation through robotic technology.

Aethon has deployed robots in multiple countries including China, Australia, Germany, Turkey, Denmark, Singapore, and the United States.
