Keep on moving

This is the motto for KUKA's 125th anniversary. No wonder, after all, this is the spirit that has driven the company since day one. And which has turned a twoman operation in Augsburg into a globally operating supplier of advanced automation solutions. That's why KUKA doesn't celebrate itself, but all those who keep moving us forward: the 14,000 "KUKAneers" around the world.

A short movie about a great movement

Employees from around the world gather to give you five different perspectives of their contribution to KUKA.

Founded in 1898, evolving ever since

The company's 125-year history proves it: The secret of KUKA's success is to keep moving, to keep changing, and to keep reinventing itself in order to once again develop the next big thing. Just like 50 years ago, when KUKA went from being a specialist in welding technology to a specialist in automation solutions with the invention of the world's first industrial robot.
