Addverb, a global robotics and automation solutions company, has inaugurated its second greenfield robot production factory. The factory, spread across nearly six hectares, is located in the Indian city of Greater Noida. On June 25, Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, officially opened the facility. Earlier this year, Addverb also inaugurated the Software Development Center in the same region, where teams work on the development of advanced software for warehouse automation.
In addition to rapid growth in India, the company is expanding its market share in the Netherlands, Germany, and other EMEA countries. Bot-Verse, a production facility spanning 55,700 square meters, has a manufacturing capacity of 100,000 robots per year with various specifications and categories. Furthermore, the factory stands out for its sustainability features, including a green area of 20,000 square meters.
Among these features is a 900-square-meter tiny forest where over 100 indigenous species of flora and fauna thrive, as well as a bio-retention pond with a capacity to capture 800,000 liters of rainwater. The state-of-the-art factory, where robots manufacture other robots, will create more than 3,000 highly skilled jobs for Indian youth. Addverb is soon launching phase two, further contributing to the company’s growth ambitions.
“This brand-new facility positions Addverb as a global leader in robot production and contributes to the development of a robotics ecosystem in India. Bot-Verse achieves this by providing advanced software and robust hardware systems that offer a blend of innovative fixed and flexible automation solutions,” says Pieter Feenstra, CEO EMEA at Addverb. “Bot-Verse is a unique production facility for mobile robots. We can now meet the global demand for robots, ultimately expanding our presence in the European market.”
Jalaj Dani, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Addverb, adds, “The opening of this factory in India enhances the robotics ecosystem in the country. It further stimulates innovation and strengthens India’s position as a prominent player in the global robotics industry, contributing to technological advancement and economic growth.”
