Entrepreneur of the Year in the Manufacturing Industry (Western Europe)
Mobile Industrial Robots
Although automated guided vehicles have been in use for a number of years, until recently, they still required a sizeable degree of manual configuration. With the autonomous devices produced by Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR), however, businesses finally have access to machines that are flexible enough to manoeuvre independently and safely, even when in close proximity to human colleagues. Thomas Visti, CEO of MiR, has been crucial to the growth of the company, focusing on ways to make the technology as user-friendly as possible. Today, the company sells tens of thousands of robots every year to various industries ranging from manufacturing to healthcare.
