Robotics and automation specialists, RMGroup, has announced a distributor partnership with ASTI Mobile Robotics, Europe’s leading manufacturer of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs). The move will see RMGroup include AGVs and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) in their extensive product portfolio of packaging machinery and robotic automation solutions.

ASTI Mobile Robotics Group, with offices in Spain, Germany, France and United States, provides automated intralogistics solutions for large manufacturers, helping them to optimise productivity, streamlining production processes and cutting operational costs. The company specialises in the engineering of Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs), serving global blue-chip customers across a wide range of sectors, including: automotive, aerospace, food, e-commerce, pharmaceutical and cosmetics. As part of their commitment to excellence and continuous improvement of their products and services, ASTI Mobile Robotics invests heavily in research and development year after year.

Having recently become the first integrator in the UK to be accredited under the RIA/BARA Robot Integrators’ Certification Scheme, the RMGroup supplies and manufactures a wide range of manual and automated packaging systems, including manual bagging machines, weighing systems, robot palletising systems, bulk filling and material handling systems, as well as supplying high speed form fill and seal packaging lines. Operating in the food & beverage, horticultural, aggregates, chemicals and agricultural industries, the company’s partnership with ASTI Mobile Robotics will provide a complementary offering.

Commenting on the partnership, RMGroup’s Rosie Davies, said: “Becoming a partner of ASTI Mobile Robotics provides a natural extension of our automation capabilities, meaning that we can now offer a seamless, integrated solution for all product and pallet handling requirements. Together we have a shared desire to remain the leaders in innovation within our respective fields, which will in turn provide a unique and unrivalled platform to support our customers.”
