Invest in Odense cases, Robotics

Gibotech and Sanovo Technology Group join together in a new robot adventure. 

A more than successful project during the summer sparks an even closer cooperation between Gibotech and Sanovo Technology Group, resulting in a new robotic company, Sanovo Technology Robotics A/S.

The two neighbors have exploited the advantages from being situated side by side in Odense, which is rapidly becoming known as Denmark’s robot capitol, and which is now getting one more robotics company. And it is not just anybody who is entering the robotics scene together with Gibotech.

Sanovo Tehcnology Group is one of the world’s largest suppliers of machines and equipment for the handling of eggs and egg products. The new organization will make Sanovo Technology Robotics the sole supplier of Sanovo Technology Group and the company will develop automation and robotic solutions for the group’s various business areas.

The goal is simple; to become the world’s leading supplier of robotic solutions for the egg industry.

We are number one in the world within our field. And now we are going to expand our position to also include automation with robots and AGV systems. We believe that cooperating with Gibotech combined with our vast knowledge about the market and building complete process lines will make us strong together”, says Michael Midskov, CEO, Sanovo Technology Group.

Staying in town
Sanovo Technology Group has ambitious goals for automation within the groups business areas and both companies see great advantages in exploiting the synergy that comes from being neighbors in Denmark’s number one robot city. Sanovo Technology Robotics will be physically placed under the same roof as Gibotech.

“It means a lot for both organizations that the new company will be based by Gibotech, so the innovative and developing mindset which is the core of our business when developing robot cells, is also anchored in the new company”, says Gibotech CEO, Henrik Anker.

The need for more people
Besides creating synergy between the two organizations, the creation of a new company will also positively impact the employment in Odense.

Because Sanovo Technology Robotics is an independent organization, various competences will be needed, and the company is looking for both project managers, technical designer, programmers and assembly workers.

Obviously, when we create a new company, we will need more people. Even though we begin by moving some people from both Gibotech and Sanovo into Sanovo Technology Robotics, we will also have to bring in new people. So, if anyone should be interested in building up the new company, they should keep an eye on our job openings”, Henrik Anker urges. In addition to Gibotech’s CEO, Henrik Anker will also be CEO of Sanovo Technology Robotics.
