Hannover Messe 2017 Angela Merkel visits Kuka at Hannover Messe
Germany - Kuka CEO Dr. Till Reuter welcomed German Chancellor Angela Merkel und Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo at the Kuka booth at Hannover Messe 2017, both of whom visited the Kuka booth on their round-trip of the fair on the first day of the show.
As a memento, he presented each of them a jigsaw puzzle from the Smart Factory. The biggest connected fair application in Kuka's history produced both puzzles in batch size 1 right at the Kuka booth. Merkel's puzzle pictured her and Reuter during her visit to the Kuka production subsidiary in Augsburg in 2015. A robot joining a German and a Polish flag was the puzzle Szydlo received.
Apart from the Smart Factory, Reuter and CFO Peter Mohnen also presented the state heads a particularly compact robot: the KR Cybertech nano. KR is a robot with extraordinary performance in the low payload class. Agile, flexible and equipped with a high reach, starring also in small spaces.

„Serdecznie witamy!“ – Welcome, in Polish, was the slogan on the big screen above the booth. The Kuka offices in Poland were founded in 2008 in Katowice. With sales, service and its own Kuka College, the company offers the full portfolio in the Poland. In 2016, a second sales office was opened in Bydgoszcz to serve northern Poland better.
