Signing of a strategic partnership for autonomous warehousing equipment

Manitou Group and Effidence, a designer of innovative robotized solutions for logistics and industry, signed a partnership for the co-development and marketing of a range of logistics robots. The objective: combining the latest in robotic technologies for warehousing with the strength of a distribution network.

In addition to Effidence robotic carts, which will be distributed by Manitou Group dealers, a range of stackers and industrial tractors will expand the offering of collaborative and autonomous warehousing equipment. The robotic autonomous stackers will be co-designed by both partners and assembled by LMH Solutions, a subsidiary of Manitou Group located in Beaupréau (Maine-et-Loire, France). The stackers will have a capacity of between 1 and 2.5 tons and will be serviced by Manitou Group's network of technicians.

We are driven to continuously innovate to accelerate automation in logistics centers and industry. With the technology developed by Effidence, we will be able to offer our customers intelligent, powerful, and fully integrated solutions that are able to meet the challenges of logistics and Industry 4.0.
