A necessary element of the implementation of the strategy consisting in striving for comprehensive customer service in the "everything from one supplier" model is the systematic expansion of the portfolio. For years, the STILL has been expanding its offer by expanding its know-how and production plants, acquiring companies and partnerships with leading entities in their industries. In our country, in the autonomous, universal, mobile transport robots (the so-called turtles ) to the pioneers and the most important players is the WObit company based in Dęborzyce near Pniewy.

- We are happy with formalization of a partnership between our company and STILL Polska in the field of the youngest, dynamically developing part of WObit's activity, which are industrial robots -mówi Przemysław Degórski, Dyrektor Rozwoju w firmie WObit. – The use of synergy between the products of both companies and the ability to reach new customers with the partner's sales representatives perfectly fits into one of the basic assumptions of WObit about following the path of dynamic development -tłumaczy.
-The most important barriers to implementations in the field of warehouse automation are currently: the price of autonomous solutions, the possibility of their scaling and adaptation to changing conditions, and the issue of cooperation between machines and people. STILL's answer to these challenges is a modular automation concept, where the level of technological advancement is tailored to specific needs, while striving for maximum ease of use. In WObit mobile robots, you can see manifestations of a similar thinking about automation– mówi Szymon Smal, dyrektor działu Advanced Applications STILL Polska. – In many applications, customers' needs in the field of automation are met based on the solutions of the STILL iGo neo family. However, we saw the potential to further optimize internal transport processes with our new partner's compact mobile robots. To simplify the procedures leading to implementations using both manual and automatic STILL trolleys and WObit mobile robots, we have established a formal cooperation. From the customer's point of view, the entire project will now be carried out through a single supplier. I have the feeling that this solution is beneficial not only from the perspective of WObit and STILL Polska, but most of all our customers -konkluduje Smal.
