From Slovenia to Scotland: Yaskawa technology is made in Europe

18 May 2018

Following the construction of the first European robot factory in Kocevje, Slovenia, Yaskawa is pursuing its expansion strategy in Europe.

The company is planning to build more new facilities in Slovenia for the production of inverter drives, servo drives and servo motors.

The first Motoman robots to be manufactured entirely in Europe are set to roll off the production line in Kocevje by the end of 2018. Yaskawa is now building further production sites in Slovenia to meet the growing demand for drive technology. The new production facilities for the manufacture of inverter drives, servo drives and servomotors will be constructed close to the existing robot factory.

Manfred Stern, President and CEO of Yaskawa Europe GmbH explained, “Expanding our production capacity will enable us to further improve the supply chain, shorten our lead times and enhance the service for our European customers”. He added, “Yaskawa’s Cumbernauld plant in Scotland for servo drives and inverters will continue to operate at the current level of utilisation and remains a vital element of Yaskawa’s manufacturing capability needed to support the growing demand for drive products from Yaskawa in Europe.
