Unleashing retail using automation and robotics

Retail Robotics

Retail Robotics (formerly Aqmet) has over 30 years of experience in mechanical manufacturing, including 11 years of experience in automation R&D.

We produced and implemented over 10.000 commercial automated machines, we have 3 patents granted for our solutions and over a dozen pending.

E-commerce is growing rapidly, overtaking bigger share of sales every year. However cities are not ready for such a huge growth. They get clogged with courier cars dedicated for home deliveries.

A few years ago, in some countries, the parcel delivery sector was revolutionized by parcel lockers, that reduced the cost of „the last mile”. We were an important part of this revolution. However, there is a shortage of space for traditional machines in large urban cities which made it impossible to grow in such cities as Paris, London or New York.

Now we are entering the market with robotized solutions which make use of vertical and mostly non-retail space in shops – making it possible to be present in thousands of convenience stores in each city with a lot of parcels in every location. Apart from boosting availability – it will increase the comfort of customers and add new possibilities for growth of this segment of retail, too.

Our mission

Our mission is to unleash retail using automation and robotics. Our goal is to help your retail business grow in a multidimensional way:

1. Enabling the synergy and reinforcement of 3 most growing retail channels, creating „convenience 3in1” store of the future:

convenience

grocery e-commerce

e-commerce

2. Facilitating profitability of grocery e-commerce – by 80% reduction of last mile delivery costs by automated pick-up points using non-commercial spaces in store.

3. Redirecting ecommerce customers’ flow to stores.
