In the third quarter, Kuka was able to convince with the award of a major contract from a German premium car manufacturer.

Kuka received the order from Mercedes-Benz for the engineering and construction as well as the assembly and commissioning of several body assembly lines. In the future, various vehicle models will be produced here.

Out of four packages offered for the essential components of a body-in-white line, Kuka was able to win the customer for all four packages. Kuka uses its comprehensive technological know-how and several hundred Kuka industrial robots for the customer’s flexible production strategy.

“We are proud that Kuka convinced here with its comprehensive expertise and decades of experience in the automation of the automotive industry,” said Gerald Mies, CEO Kuka Systems GmbH
