KUKA concludes basic contract for the supply of 100 welding robots in the growth market China
KUKA Roboter GmbH concluded a frame contract to supply a total of 100 welding robots to the large Chinese welding equipment provider Huaheng Welding Equipment & Technical Co. Ltd., Kunshan, Jiangsu province
The contract comprised the supply of 60 KUKA robots in the first stage. An additional 40 KUKA robots are still to be delivered in 2010. Last year KUKA supplied this important Chinese systems provider with KUKA robots primarily for use in arc welding.
All incoming orders received in the first quarter of 2010 by KUKA AG from the BRIC countries Brazil, Russia, India and China have more than doubled year-over-year. This positive development is attributable to a larger plant order from a German car manufacturer for China and strong growth in incoming orders from Brazil.
