French logistics robotics specialist Scallog says it is accelerating its development and expansion in Germany with a view to becoming one of the leading companies in the sector.
Scallog has signed an agreement with Xproma, a recognized expert in robotics and intralogistics at the service of optimization and logistics performance. Scallog says the deal will help establish its presence in Germany, which represents a quarter of the European logistics market.
In the region with the highest number of warehouses in Europe, Scallog says it aims to become “the reference player in robots and mobile shelves for the automation of order picking”.
As such, Scallog says its partnership with the integrator Xproma is primarily in order to market its “goods to person” solutions. An agreement in line with Scallog’s strategy to expand its network of partners in North-West Europe and to generate more than 50 percent of its turnover from exports in 2023.
With strong local roots, Xproma represents “the ideal partner” for Scallog in Germany, both through its proven robotics experience and through its recognized customer support.
Possessing a “real mastery of industrial equipment”, an excellent team dedicated to software as well as a strong management of maintenance and support on large-scale projects, it is therefore a complete expertise that Xproma brings to the whole German territory.
Remi Badaroux, partners network manager of Scallog: “This partnership is ideally in line with our European expansion strategy, where Germany is essential, both in terms of its logistics leadership, its industrial culture, its mature robotics market and highly competitive.
“With the support of our new partner Xproma, we want to promote our value proposition to as many German companies as possible, resolutely agile and scalable logistics robotics.”
Faced with the challenges of omnicality, the rise of e-commerce and the CSR requirements of German companies, Scallog’s goods to person solutions fully meet the demands for increasing productivity in order picking; but also that of reducing hardship in warehouses.
Furthermore, Scallog has a seasoned R&D team and a truly responsive production unit, based in the Paris region.
Nele Logemann, executive vice-president of Xproma, says: “We were looking for the most flexible solution possible to facilitate picking.
“We are sure that the cooperation with Scallog gives us the opportunity to open new markets together and win customers interested in innovative robotic solutions to optimize their processes.”
