Exotec Systems

Exotec are a revolutionary logistics business, based in Lille, in the far north of France. Two men with strong engineering backgrounds; Romain Moulin and Renaud Heitz, founded the business in 2014. Their vision was to create a revolutionary order-picking solution via a fleet of robots able to move in three dimensions.

The Exotec Skypod is the perfect robotic system, designed specifically for the supply chain. It connects mathematics, mechanics, and humans to create the most productive system possible.
