ASTI Mobile Robotics has won the “European Technology Award” in the category of “Automation”.
The European Awards are organised by the Professional and Business Excellence Institute and were presented in a ceremony at the Ritz Hotel in Paris recently.
The CEO of the company, Verónica Pascual, together with Jean-Michel Beghin, president of Keensight Capital, and Jean-Louis Menu, ASTI MR France country manager, collected the award which consolidates ASTI as a leader in mobile robotics and automation within the European market.
Verónica Pascual highlighted the relevance that this award has for ASTI Mobile Robotics Group, since “it is a recognition to our position as European market leader and a boost to our globalization strategy, now that we are already present in Spain, France, Germany and United States”.
Pascual said: “Our vision is to become a leading multinational group in mobile robotics systems for industrial and retail automation, helping our customers to be more competitive and flexible. All our efforts are invested in making that vision possible.”
Pascual recently acquired the company InSystems Automation, a German company that is also dedicated to the development of AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles).
With this acquisition, ASTI is already present in Burgos and Madrid (Spain), Mulhouse (France), Berlin (Germany) and North Carolina (United States of America).
ASTI Mobile Robotics is now part of an international group of companies specialising in mobile robotic systems, an engineering company dedicated to the study, design, manufacture, start-up and maintenance of logistics solutions using automated guided vehicles.
Driverless vehicles are the core business of ASTI. The company offers AGVs in three different categories:
- Automotive: a complete solution for OEMs and Tier 1 to make the most of their competitiveness;
- E-commerce: AGV systems suitable for the management of multiple SKUs in “goods-to-person” solutions; and
- Fast Moving Consumer Goods: integrating mobile robots systems for pallets and container movements.
Also, with the incorporation of InSystems Automation, the range of mobile robots is extended with the ProANT family for light loads movements.
