Continued double-digit growth for Comau Robotics

For the third consecutive year, the positive growth trend continues for the Italian manufacturer

Comau continues its growth in the Robotics sector, and for the third consecutive year has recorded a double-digit increase in articulated robot sales.


Similarly, the results in individual industries reflect the global growth trend, which is even more significant as it underlines the success of Comau's market penetration strategies.

In particular, the increase in 2015 was equally distributed within Automotive and General Industry, the latter of which is where Comau has been investing both at a commercial level and at a product level. The growth, in addition to China, was particularly concentrated in Eastern Europe and within the NAFTA region.

In the APAC region the company has recorded a significant increase in sales thanks in part to the establishment in China of both production facilities and one of the most cutting-edge Innovation Centers within the Comau global network.
