Transbotics Joins SCOTT's Global Team!


Transbotics Acquisition by SCOTT

SCOTT Technology Limited, RobotWorx' parent company, is thrilled to announce the most recent agreement to purchase another North American Company; Transbotics. Transbotics is an AGV (automated guided vehicle) and AGC (automated guided cart) manufacturer that has specialized in the design, installation, and support of AGV’s since 1982. 

AGVs are driverless, computer-controlled vehicles that are programmed to transport materials whereas Automatic Guided Carts (AGC) are cost-effective assembly and tugger solutions. Examples include: Fork Style AGV, Tugger/Tow/Unit Load Transport AGC, Assembly Line, Unit Load Transport AGV, Conveyor Style AGV, and Roll Handling Fork Spreader AGV.

Transbotics has also provided custom Engineered to Order Tailor-Made™ AGV’s that offer proven, reliable material handling solutions for production and warehouse facilities. Transbotics’ headquarters are located in Charlotte, North Carolina.

These solutions all help to increase safety, margin, and cut operating costs. Before this acquisition, any AGV integration had to happen from third parties. Now SCOTT can engage in AGV systems in house, removing additional risk and cost that typically comes from outsourcing. 

This exciting business transaction allows SCOTT to now offer a complete end-to-end offering for the production process, from raw material receipt to final distribution. Transbotics will help complement back end logistic capabilities while helping to accelerate the market access by quickly providing the necessary skills and technologies at lower costs.

Furthermore, existing material handling and logistics products in the North American market can now be further strengthened and supported. 

SCOTT has a global workforce of over 700 people, with this Transbotics acquisition adding 30 more. SCOTT looks forward to seeing all of the opportunities this acquisition has to offer. RobotWorx is proud to be a part of this global team and looking forward to working together in the future.  For more information, inquire online or call us at 740-251-4312.
