Metzingen, Germany – November 30th, 2023
The young technology company NEURA Robotics, innovation driver and manufacturer of cognitive robots, is bringing in top manager from Bosch for its scale-up phase. Jens Fabrowsky will complete the management team of the “Next German Hero” from Metzingen as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Chief Technical Officer (CTO) from December 1, 2023.
The former Executive Vice President and Divisional Board Member for Automotive Electronics at Robert Bosch GmbH, Jens Fabrowsky, will in future be responsible for product development and operational management at NEURA Robotics. Fabrowsky explains his decision to change as follows: “This is about making Industry 4.0 tangible. AI in production, robots in the home: these are the really big visions of our time! And NEURA Robotics has the know-how and the guts to make all this a reality. To be part of this important scale-up phase of the company is a unique opportunity.”
According to Jens Fabrowsky, NEURA Robotics is the right company in the right place at the right time. This is supported by existing international supply agreements worth around half a billion euros, which will have to be serviced in the coming years. It was only in the summer of 2023 that NEURA Robotics ignited the growth turbo with 65 million Euros from a European investor consortium, thus finally saying goodbye to its Chinese founding partners. With this step, NEURA founder and CEO David Reger has repeatedly positioned cognitive robotics as the guiding principle for the future of the German economy.
David Reger’s new helmsman Jens Fabrowsky underlines this claim: “The ‘next big thing’ in the world will definitely be robots that support us in all areas of life. It’s as big as the automotive market or the demand for smartphones.”
On the way there, the mechanical and industrial engineer has very down-to-earth short-term goals: “These include massively expanding production in Germany in the shortest possible time.”
David Reger (CEO and founder of NEURA Robotics) is both proud and grateful: “In Jens Fabrowsky, we have gained an absolute top expert. And when a personality like him joins us from an established, traditional company, it also shows that we are on the right track. Jens is a master of production processes and scaling. He has repeatedly demonstrated the hands-on mentality that you need in a scale-up and has led business units from the ground-breaking ceremony on a greenfield site to sales figures in the billions. It is a blessing that he is now supporting our vision of making Germany synonymous with cognitive robotics.”
Following a clear commitment to its founding location in Metzingen and its branches in Bielefeld and Hamburg, NEURA Robotics only decided on Munich as a further engineering hub for “artificial intelligence” at the beginning of October. In total, several hundred jobs in the field of future technologies are to be created in Germany in the short and medium term. NEURA Robotics is planning to expand into the USA in 2024.
Cognitive robotics – pioneering achievement “Made in Germany” by NEURA Robotics
The robotics company NEURA Robotics from Metzingen near Stuttgart quickly became a global pioneer in cognitive robotics and an innovation leader in the industry after it was founded in 2019. The presentation of the first cognitive cobot MAiRA, which merged AI and robotics in a single platform while setting new international standards in terms of performance and safety, was a decisive milestone. A decisive business advantage of NEURA’s cognitive robot platform is its unrivaled ease and speed of commissioning, which is based on innovative voice and gesture control.
Cognitive robots can see, hear and touch as well as reliably identify people. This ability to fully perceive environments and process them reflexively enables cognitive robots to act predictively and autonomously. In addition to countless robotics applications that will make everyday social life easier in the future, the technology is already demonstrating its advantages in industry today: Production optimization, short amortization times, increased flexibility or space savings.
