AMP Robotics, operating in AI, robotics, and infrastructure for the waste and recycling industry, is expanding its footprint in Europe with the commissioning of a demonstration site at SIGMA SA facilities in Lublin, Poland. The site is open to recycling and waste management businesses throughout Europe to process their materials using one of AMP’s AI-guided robotics systems to identify different types of paper, plastics, and metals for sortation.
AMP has appointed Agrex-Eco, a comprehensive service provider for the waste industry, as its official distributor for customers in Poland. Agrex-Eco, celebrating 30 years in business, offers design and installation consultation along with technical training and support, and works with leading equipment manufacturers across Europe.
“The opening of our demo site in Lublin with Agrex-Eco and its long-term partner SIGMA is another key milestone as we expand our presence in Europe,” said Gary Ashburner, European general manager, AMP Robotics. “We’re mutually committed to lowering the cost of recycling and improving material recovery, and look forward to opening our doors to the waste and recycling community to show how our systems, powered by the industry’s largest AI dataset, can transform their operations.”
AMP installed its first robotic sorting system in Europe in late 2020. Since announcing its reseller partnership with REP-TEC Advanced Technologies for customers in the UK and Ireland in July and first installation on the islands with Recyco, AMP’s team in Europe has grown to include sales support, training, and more, in addition to direct sales staff.
“There’s a strong desire to implement AI and automation solutions for more efficient material processing in Europe, and AMP is the clear leader,” said Jacek Zawadzki, CEO of Agrex-Eco. “The robot we’ve installed at the SIGMA reference site offers a great look for future customers and other interested parties at a system that’s shifting the industry’s economics.”
AMP and Agrex-Eco are exhibiting at POLECO 2021, 13-15 October, stand 88, hall 5. AMP won two Gold Medals at POLECO 2020 for its intelligent robotics systems. To further its market penetration, AMP is actively seeking to establish additional reseller partnerships in Austria, France, Germany, The Netherlands, and Switzerland.
