Exotec puts success down to ‘reinventing an industry’

14 March 2024

THE ROBOTICS solutions provider has reached $1 billion in systems sold since its launch in 2015, with customers including Gap, Decathlon, and UNIQLO.

Exotec CEO and co-founder Romain Moulin, says: “Reaching the milestone of $1 billion in systems sold globally shows that our approach to warehouse automation is differentiated and strongly resonates with our customers.

“We are reinventing an industry that has historically relied on legacy automation that is static to business fluctuations, hard to maintain and expensive to integrate. Our continued growth is proof that flexibility and reliable performance are paramount for supply chain leaders everywhere.”

Exotec re-invests 10% of its annual revenue in research and development, and plans to recruit close to 100 R&D professionals globally in 2024.

Exotec supplies the Skypod robotic warehousing solution that aim to boost productivity and maximise warehouse space. The tech focuses on tote handling and storage, and all processes around that.

What makes the system stand out, at first, is that it comprises robots that climb the bespoke racks retrieving and replacing tote boxes. It’s a sight to behold, and no other system takes this approach.

When word of the rack-climbing robots first reached the UK a few years ago, the concept was regarded with a great deal of scepticism. There looks to be at least a billion reasons why that scepticism has been brushed aside.
