FRANKFURT, Germany—Automation company Hahn Group is beefing up with its acquisition of Dahl Automation in Germany.
Dahl "is an integrator for robotics, cobots, as well as AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robot) and AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle)," Hahn said in a statement.
Cobots are collaborative robots that work with humans in a shared process.
Dahl, a 30-employee company based in Meinerzhagen, Germany, expands Hahn's portfolio with expertise in "cobots, grippers, image processing systems and standardized training cells," Frankfurt-based Hahn said.
"Dahl Automation is a pioneer in the field of collaborative robotics and has established itself with well-known customers, providing innovative automation solutions. The company's expertise fits perfectly into the Hahn Group portfolio," CEO Thomas Hahn said in a statement.
Detlev Dahl, founder and managing director of Dahl Automation, will continue to lead the company. "The combination of international orientation and proximity to the customer is very promising for us," he said. "We look forward to expanding our range of services together with the sister companies in the Hahn Group, as well as opening up new industries and markets."
