Eltrex Motion joins Breda Robotics

Breda, June 14, 2022 – Last May Eltrex Motion, specialist in drive and positioning technology and part of the international Eight Lakes group, became a member of Breda Robotics.

Breda Robotics is an initiative of various robotics companies, Avans University, the municipality of Breda and REWIN. Together they want to stimulate robotisation in West-Brabant by means of a Smart Industry Fieldlab. Moreover, they want to offer a solution for the shortage of technical talents in the region.

Through Breda Robotics, an ecosystem is created in which various stakeholders in the region are linked together to stimulate cooperation and to harmonise supply and demand. The organisation acts as a testing ground for innovative solutions from robotics companies, education and the lectorate. They do this by testing setups, sharing knowledge through active workshops and researching new solutions for issues from various industries such as healthcare, ship management, construction, infrastructure, maintenance and more.

Connection with the region

Eltrex Motion is a player within these diverse branches and therefore wants to appeal to the technical talents of tomorrow and make them enthusiastic for robotisation and automation. Coen Waltman, Director Eltrex Motion: “Our participation in this Smart Industry Fieldlab brings us into contact with several stakeholders, students and suppliers in the region in an accessible way. By joining forces we can contribute to their development in a constructive way.”
