Sales increase by 22 percent

FANUC Germany continues to be programmed for growth: The “Offensive 2022/2023″ led to an increased business result. Sales in the past fiscal year amounted to 236 million euros. Compared to the previous year, this is an increase of 22 percent. This means that the record year of 2018 has almost been achieved again. Robotics” was again the strongest division in the past fiscal year. Robomachines and Factory Automation made a pleasing contribution to the overall result. In order to be prepared for the future, the Neuhausen site is being further expanded. The new building is nearing completion. In addition, investments were made in charging stations and the use of renewable energies.

Ralf Winkelmann, Managing Director of FANUC Deutschland GmbH: “The robot market has continued to develop for us over the past year.” In this context, the “classic” industrial robots continue to dominate in terms of both unit numbers and sales, “even though the lightweight robots of the CRX series in particular are gaining in importance.” These new robot series are an addition to the conventional robot models. In our experience to date, CRX robots are popular for third-shift or mobile augmentation, while yellow industrial robots are typically in 24/7 use performing cycle-time sensitive tasks.

The traditional markets are strongly influenced by the change in the automotive and supplier industry. Numerous new projects and entire factories are shaping the change and driving a growing demand for robots. In other sectors, such as the food industry or intralogistics, the shortage of skilled workers is driving automation.

FANUC is also following this change by adjusting its product portfolio. Ralf Winkelmann: “We are constantly adapting our product portfolio to the needs of our customers.” These can be new models within existing series, such as the successful R-2000i series robots, the stainless steel variant in the Delta robots, or new series such as the M-1000iA, which has been specially developed for the production and handling of battery cells.

With the new building in Neuhausen, FANUC is also expanding its opportunities in training and further education. FANUC Germany’s academy will receive additional training rooms from September 2023.

As early as July 21, 2023, FANUC will open its doors for an “Apprenticeship Day”. A total of 150 students from five schools in the Neuhausen area will be informed about training courses and about FANUC technology. Then, in the afternoon, there will be a “robotics competition of schools” in which students write robot programs. In addition to the information, there are attractive prizes to be won.
