Bietigheim-Bissingen, November 16, 2011 – Dürr’s success in robot technology is continuing. The group booked the six-thousandth order for its EcoRP painting robot in September after it had already topped the five thousand mark in February 2011. The six-thousandth robot is being installed, together with three “colleagues”, at Ford’s plant in Craiova (Romania). The Application Technology business unit, where Dürr’s robot and application technology activities are concentrated, will probably increase its sales from € 270 million to
€ 400 million in 2011, driven by the strong demand in the automobile industry.
