“It is an honor and a privilege to take over this position from Andreas,” said Ben Gaegauf. “I want to thank him for the tremendous job he has done in building this excellent organization from the ground up, and I look forward to continuing on the path that he has paved for our business.” Under Ben’s leadership, AGILOX aims to accelerate its expansion and continue its commitment to innovation in the field of autonomous mobile robots.
