Tradition meets Innovation
KUKA has made a remarkable development: Originally it was found as Augsburger Acetylenwerk by Johann Josef Keller and Jakob Knappig in 1898. Today our company is the leading producer of industry-robotics and automated systems.
KUKA provides work for about 12.000 people in more than 30 countries. They all have one major characteristic in common: their passion for the company KUKA and its innovative technologies. KUKA employees do not simply just work. Each single day they get enthusiastic about their tasks and show that KUKAns literally have „orange blood”.
Despite its company size KUKA has the characteristics of a medium-sized business. The hierarchies are flat and responsibilities are widely spread. As a Global Player we have been successfully progressing since mid-1990. Nevertheless we are dedicated to our domestic locations; therefore we are investing continuously in modern equipped workplaces. That is the reason why KUKA Robotics was founded 10 years ago in Katowice, Poland.
