Cohesio Group to bring Fetch Robotics solutions to ANZ
Technology solutions provider Cohesio Group has announced it has formed a partnership with autonomous mobile robot (AMR) provider Fetch Robotics. The two companies say they will collaborate to help retailers and logistics providers in the Asia–Pacific region deliver advanced automation through flexible and scalable solutions.
Formed in 2014, California-based automation company Fetch Robotics claims to have pioneered the world’s first cloud robotics platform for delivering on-demand automation in any facility.
The company’s technology provides a cloud robotics platform that autonomously moves and tracks virtually anything in any warehouse or manufacturing environment ranging from parts as small as a transistor to pallets weighing 1500 kg.
Cohesio Group will add Fetch Robotics to its range of enterprise-graded solutions spanning automation, voice-enabled technologies, handheld devices and workflow optimisation.
In Asia–Pacific, the industrial robotics market is expected to grow by more than 13% and is set to reach $151 billion by 2026, according to data released by market research provider Research and Markets. Increasing customer demand is a major driving factor in this, and Cohesio Group has been involved in major automation deployments in the Asia–Pacific region.
“Fetch Robotics is a market leader in automation. At Cohesio we always want to offer our clients the very best and latest technology in automation and have therefore made the decision to broaden our portfolio in partnering with Fetch Robotics,” said Nishan Wijemanne, CEO of Cohesio Group. “We know the demand for automation in this region is growing, and we want to ensure we can offer a full range of products and services to our customers to help them meet this challenging demand.”
“We are excited to partner with Cohesio Group. We know that Cohesio has a reputation in this region for working closely with its customers to establish flexible and agile automated solutions,” said Melonee Wise, CEO of Fetch Robotics. “In Cohesio we have found a partner who is pushing the boundaries of what is possible in automation and technology and is committed to innovation across the entire supply chain. For this reason, we are very excited to see what we can achieve together in the fast-growing Asia–Pacific e-commerce market.”
“The Fetch Robotics solutions offer immediate efficiency gains around travel and labour time,” added Ravi Nath, Head of Automated Solutions at Cohesio Group. “The robots can be fully operational in a matter of hours and do not require extensive changes to warehouse environments or existing processes. Providing significant efficiency and productivity gains, warehouse operators instead have the time to focus on higher-level and more productive tasks.”
Cohesio Group was acquired by international logistics company Körber in September last year. It was recently announced that Cohesio Group would join 11 other sister companies under the umbrella Körber Supply Chain as part of a global rebrand. The united brand will provide a diverse range of capabilities spanning software, automation, voice, robotics and material handling equipment.
