Exotec opens new hub for its automated conveyor range

Exotec, a provider of robotic solutions for warehouses, has opened a new production space in Croix, France. The new space will house the production of Exotec’s Skypath conveyor range, producing an average of thirty modules per day.

Located in Rue du Creusot in Croix, near Exotec’s headquarters, the new 2,500 sq m space marks a strategic milestone in the company’s rapid growth.

The building will house production workshops for the Skypath range, as well as acting as a dedicated service centre for the maintenance of Skypod robots, with thirty collaborators initially contributing to the developments.

Skypath is a disruptive plug-and-play automated conveyor system consisting of straight, curved, and inclined building blocks. The signature modular design allows Skypath to be deployed in weeks without complex hardware integration, with minimal interference to ongoing operations.

Fabien Rouquette, director of industrial activities at Exotec, says: “After thorough research, we selected a well-equipped industrial building in Croix, on the outskirts of Lille, with suitable access for heavy goods vehicles.

“The proximity to existing facilities proved crucial to fostering collaboration, especially with research and development teams and support functions.

“The inauguration of the new building symbolises the advancement in Exotec’s growth strategy, establishing our industrial expansion by internalizing the production of Skypath.

“This will allow us to anticipate future needs of our customers, aligned with the continuous development of our product roadmap.”

In recent months, Exotec announced its continued business expansion, reaching over 100 customer sites globally. The company is also on track to increase its global employee headcount 80 per cent year on year by 2024 to support record business growth across APAC, Europe, and North America.
