Warehouse logistics specialist Effidence and Manitou Group are set to launch a range of robotic stackers.

The partnership between the two French companies will result in the co-design of autonomous stackers and industrial tractors and will bring advantages to both companies, including expertise in the latest robotics technologies to Manitou Group and a strong distribution network to Effidence. The manufacturer is already well-established in the production of custom-made robotic trolley, the EffiBOT.

Cédric Tessier, president and founder of Effidence, said, “With EffiBOT, we have shown that robots can be more than just a means of conveying goods. Our autonomous robots are a real gain in productivity for preparation operations and for operators. The company is now interested in disruptive technologies of cooperative robot fleets.

In this context, we were looking for a solid partner to extend the range of our robots to logistics flows of pallets or towing heavy and/or bulky loads and we chose Manitou.”

The robotic stackers will be assembled by LMH Solutions, a subsidiary of Manitou Group, located in Beaupréau, and their maintenance will be carried out by technicians from the Manitou network.
