KUKA Group completed the 2017 financial year successfully and was able to surpass the previous year’s results by a considerable margin in some cases. “We continued to profit from the digitization trend over the past year. The demand for intelligent automation solutions remains strong,” states Dr. Till Reuter, CEO of KUKA AG. “At the same time, we have had to set the right course for a successful future. To a significant extent, our success is founded on our investments – in key technologies and innovative products for Industrie 4.0, in partnerships, in new business segments such as consumer robotics, and in the growth market of China,” he stressed.
