Kuka’s new facility in China

Manufacturer of robots and automation Kuka is setting up a new facility in Shanghai. To start operating later next year with about 350 employees, the facility’s first robot series will be the KR Quantec, followed by the KR C4 universal controllers. The assembly capacity of 3,000 robots and controls in the first year is expected to grow to 5,000 units by 2015.

The Augsburg-based company says it has more than doubled its year-on-year robot sales in 2011. It will now manufacture for the automotive industry and increasingly also for the general industry from its 20,000 sq m plant. The company set up its Chinese subsidiary in 2000 and has another four Kuka distribution and service subsidiaries, apart from the head office in Shanghai.
