Robot maker plans expansion

Midea Group’s robotic arm, in Germany, KUKA AG, will expand production capacity of robots and robotics systems in China, as the country’s demand for the machines has been booming recently, according to a senior manager of the company. “KUKA is working closely with Midea to look for business opportunities,” said Wilfried Eberhardt, chief marketing officer of the company. “We will soon double the production capacity in China as the demand for robotics is increasing in the country.”

The company’s expansion plan was a move in accordance with a strategy of its parent company, which aims to promote the use of robotics in industrial and smart home appliances.
