Doosan Robotics signs up RG Group as first US distributor and integrator

RG Group has become the first US company to agree on a distribution and integration partnership for Doosan’s collaborative robots.

Doosan Robotics says its collaborative robots can be useful in different industries and processes ranging from assembly and inspection to gluing and packaging.

The company claims to have “the world’s most diversified lineup of collaborative robots” which boast high-performance torque sensors and the industry-leading collision detection technology. 

Doosan, which is a South Korean industrial conglomerate, aims to become a leading player in the global collaborative robotics market, which is expected to grow exponentially in the era of the “fourth Industrial Revolution”.

Rich Freeh, president and CEO of RG Group, says: “It’s not often we have the opportunity to partner with a premier global brand and launch the newest and best technology in collaborative robotics.

“We are honored to be the Mid-Atlantic partner for the Doosan collaborative robotic product offering.

“The growth in the collaborative space is amazing and we have an opportunity to aggressively grow our market share with Doosan as a vendor partner.”

Patrick Gross, VP of business development for robotics and flexible outsourced manufacturing, says: “We are extremely excited about our partnership with Doosan. While our companies reside on opposite sides of the world, our cultures are quite similar.

“Both companies emphasize integrity, dedication to our people, dedication to our customers and emphasis on world-class technology and innovation.

“After in-depth analysis of Doosan’s collaborative robotic offering, we have decided it’s the right move for our company.

“It’s truly an honor to be Doosan’s first partner in the United States. I look forward to many years of mutual success between both organizations.”
