Two companies – dedicated to achieving sustainability through automation efficiency – become one to create pioneering automation solutions for your business.
Automation is at the heart of Jungheinrich’s strategy, and we continue to invest and innovate to support our customers’ priorities. In an exciting development that underlines our commitment to pioneering technology, Jungheinrich AG has acquired arculus GmbH, an innovative start-up business with market leading autonomous vehicle technology.
arculus is a software and robotics company
Founded in 2016, arculus is a software and robotics company committed to making modular production a reality. Jungheinrich and arculus share common goals and values and a commitment to make it easy for our customers to achieve their automation goals quickly and efficiently.
A complete automation portfolio for you
Adding the arculee AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robot) massively extends Jungheinrich’s AGV/AMR portfolio and allows us to access your business use cases, such as underload transport and AMR-based goods-to-person order picking (G2P). We can now offer Mobile Robots (AMR/AGV) to meet all your requirements, from low level to high level to narrow aisle, load towing to underrun, goods to person and robot to goods.
Based on the standardized interface VDA 5050, arculus provides a control system managing the AGV/AMR of different suppliers, which means we can support your use cases with systems from different manufacturers in one solution.
Jungheinrich and arculus share many goals
In addition to the synergy of German companies with strong engineering credentials and recognized track records in research and development, both Jungheinrich and arculus are committed to high quality standards and put customer requirements at the center of their activities. Together, we are also dedicated to achieving sustainability through automation efficiency.
The acquisition of arculus by Jungheinrich will provide arculus with even more strength on its automation path, driving the world’s transition to a flexible, efficient and sustainable way of manufacturing. Working together, your business will benefit from the combination of our extended Mobile Robot portfolio and our global resources, including after-deployment and after-sales resources, to meet your business needs even in the largest projects.
