Industry of the Future, Intralogistics and Industry 4.0, Factory of the Future, etc., so many new concepts that push the manufacturers to rethink their traditional models to remain competitive. To better serve its customers in this transformation and provide new automation and mobile robotics solutions for their performance progress, BA Systèmes announces the birth of BA Robotic Systems Group.
A STRUCTURED GROUP FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF EVER MORE INNOVATIVE MOBILE ROBOTICS SOLUTIONS
Automation and interconnected equipments enable the implementation of more efficient complete industrial processes but involve technological and digital transformations. From that standpoint, the Group believes in the synergy of its different activities (intralogistics, AGV, industrial robotics, healthcare and port automation) to anticipate needs and satisfy its industrial customers.
Developing the solutions for the future, building a more efficient and competitive plant is BA Robotic Systems Group’s ambition. Business France made no mistake in choosing BA Systèmes to embody French expertise and creativity within the «Industry 4.0» dedicated space at the last Hannover Fair.
THE INDUSTRY OF THE FUTURE IS ALREADY A WORK ITEM FOR BA ROBOTICS SYSTEMS GROUP
For BA Systèmes, innovation has always been the pillar of its development and continuous growth. Each year, more than 15% of its turnover are dedicated to R&D.
Jean-Luc Thomé, Chairman of BA Robotic Systems Group and of BA Systèmes, recalls that “The Group has invested continuously in R&D since 2007, when we adopted the Open Innovation approach. Establishing collaborative partnerships with world-renowned major groups and organizations enables us to pool skills and accelerate the development of new technologies.”
This innovation approach combined with a proven know-how in mobile robotics and a logistics expertise allows the Group to develop, for some years, industrial prototypes that meet the strategic challenges of the Industry 4.0. These robotic systems converge to new usages based on a collaboration between human and machine within a same ecosystem. Thus, the Group has developed this year for PSA (Peugeot Citroën), a mobile robot for parts handling (H2020 collaborative project) and for Airbus Group, a mobile cobot dedicated to assembly operations in the A380 (IRT collaborative project).
A GROWING GROUP
With a financial year ended 2015 with a turnover of € 23 million and a growth of over 10 % for the 6th consecutive year, the Group considers future with enthusiasm and some ever more innovative projects to be implemented in France and abroad. Proud of the trust its customers testify to BA Systèmes, the Group confirms its commitment to integrate intelligent and flexible solutions across a value chain in order to continue supporting the performance and competitiveness of its clients.
Many recruitments come with this growth in 2016 for all the strategic activities of the company: logistics, consulting, industrial robotics, R&D, etc. The opened positions to participate in the development of solutions for the Factory of the Future are available online at http://emploi.basystemes.com
