Industrial mobile robot manufacturer Kivnon celebrated the milestone of the manufacture and installation of its 5,000th robot.

In late 2009, Juan Prieto and Luis Gómez, co-founders of Kivnon, registered the brand and designed their first mobile robot, the K10, which was the most successful product in the automotive sector at that time. Growth continued as global economic tensions eased. In 2017, the company began its international expansion, entering new sectors such as logistics and pharmaceuticals.

“We started in 2009 with a vision for new ways to improve intralogistics operations in production centers, warehouses and distribution centers, along with a team of talented experts in material handling and robotic engineering. We are proud and excited to announce that we have now manufactured our 5,000th mobile robot,” CEO Prieto said.

Kivnon's product portfolio includes small vehicles that tow carts or carry the load directly, tractors, and autonomous forklifts with navigation systems allow them to operate safely and efficiently.

Headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, Kivnon designs, manufactures and implements mobile robots.
