Smart Robotics’ History


The story begins

Smart Robotics was founded on the first of May 2015, by Mark Menting and Heico Sandee. They opposed the status quo within the robotics industry and noticed there was a need for renewal. Traditional robot applications are created for a specific project and need custom programming, resulting in high costs per installation, low flexibility and limited functionality. However, in today’s society there is an ever increasing and varying consumer demand, which is why logistics- and production companies are in need of more flexible and innovative pick & place automation.

The pick & place solution

Smart Robotics offers the solution. As a Pick & Place Partner, we offer unique and reliable pick and place robots that improve operational efficiency and ensure continuous operation in any fulfillment process.


All over the world

In 2015, Smart Robotics started at a small office at the High Tech Campus Eindhoven. Nowadays, we are situated in our head office in Best, in the middle of the high tech region Brainport. After our start, Smart Robotics was quickly noticed within the industry. Nowadays, you can find our pick and place robots all over the world and we have developed a strong partner network within Europe and beyond.
