We recently conducted a video shoot in the premises of E-COBOT, a company specialised in industrial robotics and located in Carquefou, near Nantes. Here are some photos and excerpts from the interview.
E-COBOT was created in 2016 in Nantes, Atlantic France. The company manufactures and integrates innovative solutions designed for the logistics sector and relies on 45 people: engineers, physical doctors and technicians.
Its motto is “Helping humans safely in their daily tasks” and its expertise covers fields such as robotics, mobile cobotics, artificial intelligence, UX Design and software development. The company works for major stakeholders such as Manitou, GEFCO, Hutchinson, Thales, E-Leclerc, etc.
HUSKY, a versatile industrial cobot
“Our flagship product is HUSKY, the first smart mobile cobot made in France which is built to move goods for logistics operations. We designed HUSKY as a standard mobile platform that can offer you several possibilities by adding specific accessories on top of it”, stated Christophe Scheid, the Business developer for new market and partnership manager for E-COBOT.
In collaboration with the company Tame-care from the group Tronico (also based in Atlantic France), E-COBOT in particular has turned HUSKY into an autonomous disinfection solution to help businesses fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
Being located in Atlantic France, a key asset for business
E-COBOT is making the most of its location in Atlantic France which offers a dynamic business environment and is the 2nd ranking French region for manufacturing jobs.
“It is a region rich in manufacturing partners and offering a large variety of local industrial customers. This enabled us to structure ourselves with strategic resources such as artificial intelligence, technological and commercial development ; to continue our innovation road map to expand our product range ; to build a strong supply chain and an industrial organisation to support the commercial development of our products”, explains Sebastien Ecault, CEO and founder of E-COBOT.
The video will be published in the coming days in our section Success stories.
