OTTO Motors Takes AMRs Worldwide
June 28, 2021
Motors inked a series of partnerships to extend availability of OTTO Motors’
line of AMRs to a global audience. In addition, OTTO Motors has successfully
completed third party assessments to demonstrate that the company’s products
meet or exceed all relevant safety standards in Europe and in the United States
including ANSI/RIA R15.08 which they helped define.
OTTO Motors provides autonomous material handling inside manufacturing
facilities and warehouses and is the technology behind some of the largest
deployments of AMRs in North America. Instead of operators pushing carts or
driving forklifts, OTTO’s line of AMRs autonomously delivers materials safely,
reliably and efficiently. The combination of ease-of-use and sophisticated
software means that OTTO AMRs can not only deliver value in short order, but
also easily scale to hundreds of devices.
In order to make OTTO’s line of award-winning AMRs available worldwide, the
company has partnered with leading system integrators around the world and
expanded its global partnership program. OTTO Motors is announcing partnerships
with DesignPro Automation and Romias Robotics in Europe as well as our global
integrator partner Grenzebach Group. This is in addition to newly-operational
warehousing operations in The Netherlands and Japan to better serve customers in
“One of the things that sets OTTO Motors apart is our process-first approach to
automating material handling. It is how we’re able to achieve facility-scale
transformation for our customers and why we’ve been very intentional about our
growth. We partner with the very best integrators and tech leaders to provide
customers with industry expertise to automate a wide range of workflows in their
facilities and regional presence to provide top tier support,” said OTTO Motors
