Tradition meets innovation
The development of KUKA as a company has been remarkable: founded in 1898 by Johann Josef Keller and Jakob Knappich as the Augsburg Acetylene Factory, the company is now the market leader in the production of industrial robots and automated systems and plants.
KUKA Robotics CEE GmbH was founded in 2007 as a 100% subsidiary in Linz and currently employs around 100 people.
The KUKA philosophy
KUKA employs around 14,000 people in more than 30 countries. They all have one thing in common: their passion for KUKA as a company and its technological innovation. KUKA employees do not simply perform a role. They are enthused by the new aspects of their tasks on a daily basis, showing that they quite literally have “orange blood”.
Despite the size of the company, KUKA has the characteristics of a medium-sized company. The company’s hierarchies are flat and responsibility at KUKA rests with a wide range of individuals. KUKA has been successfully making its mark as a global player since the mid-1990s. That being said, strengthening our domestic locations is very important to us. For this reason, we continually invest in modern workplaces.
