French warehouse robotics specialist Exotec has opened a new production space in Croix, located to the northeast of the city of Lille and close to the design headquarters for its flagship Skypod system.
The space will be used to produce the company’s range of Skypath conveyors, with an expected production output of thirty modules a day.
The new 2,500m² space is a strategic milestone, Exotec has said, and will support its decision to internally manufacture this solution.

This new building will house the production workshops for the Skypath range, as well as the main centre for maintenance services for the Skypod robots.

What’s more, the site is close to existing facilities, which Exotec has said will help its various regional teams collaborate.
“The inauguration of this new building symbolises a new advancement in Exotec’s growth strategy,” said Fabien Rouquette, director of industrial activities, Exotec.
“This new space confirms our industrial expansion and allows us to anticipate the future, aligned with the continuous development of our product roadmap.”
