Successful with 3 pillars
Since the autumn of the last financial year, the three business areas of Keba - Industrial Automation, Handover Automation and Energy Automation - have been independent companies and run the operational business within the Keba Group. However, they continue to appear under the common strong Keba brand and use the synergies of the group.
Industrial Automation develops and produces automation solutions consisting of hardware and software for machines and robots. The solutions range from operation to control and safety technology to drive technology. These solutions are used in various mechanical engineering sectors and in robotics.
Handover Automation is a specialist for handover solutions. These enable the secure and contactless transfer of cash, parcels or goods as well as controlled access to shared objects. These solutions are known, for example, as ATMs at banks or as parcel machines at postal and logistics companies and as transfer machines in vehicle dealerships, in the judiciary or in the health sector.
Energy Automation is one of the pioneers of charging solutions for electric vehicles. With the wall boxes, you can not only charge electric cars safely and reliably, but also network them with various systems, such as a photovoltaic system, thanks to a wide range of interfaces. Another focus in this business area is in the area of heating controls for heat pumps and biomass heating systems.
The three business areas have different characteristics. Industrial automation focuses on the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) area. Handover Automation is in the project business with the production of self-service machines. And Energy Automation with its wall boxes for e-cars and heating control systems is a series business close to the end customer.
In order to be able to optimally adapt to these different market requirements, it makes sense to enable different approaches, processes or sales channels. Due to the separate responsibility, Keba can serve the industries even more purposefully and act even closer to the customer. In addition, it also corresponds to Keba's agile organizational understanding to make decisions as decentralized as possible in order to be able to make them quickly and in a targeted manner and to get to work quickly.
Keba Group AG is responsible for the overall orientation of Keba as well as the strategic and financial management of the entire group of companies.
