John Hayes of BALYO Sees Changing Material Handling Industry Accelerates AGV Robotics

John Hayes, Director of Sales at BALYO, discussed how the changing material handing industry is accelerating the use of AGV robotics to lower costs, increase productivity, and guarantee quality. COVID has made it abundantly clear to managers at 3PLs (third party logistics), DCs (distribution centers), and manufacturing plants that the robotization of material handling is an economic necessity.

According to Hayes, players like BALYO are pioneers in terms of innovation, using infrastructure-free navigation technology and combining all the advantages of the sector: standard and robust basic forklift trucks, global sales networks, and flexible cutting-edge technology. 

The ability of robots to navigate around a complex and unreferenced space has been one of the major challenges in this sector. The demand for increased flexibility, safety, accuracy, and simplicity has only escalated during the pandemic. Clients want to install and redeploy robots at will, without calling on the services of the manufacturer. The maturity level of different available technology is starting to reach that objective as some infrastructure-free solutions are achieving the goal.

Robotics & Automation News, established in 2015, is one of the most widely read industrial publications globally.

About BALYO:

Pascal Rialland, CEO of BALYO and leader in the design and development of innovative robotic solutions for material handling trucks, shared that BALYO considerably strengthened commercial development prospects. The company is counting on an enhanced technological platform which reduces sales cycles and benefiting from the ramp-up of direct sales to complement existing indirect sales channels. The direct sales channel is now fully operational in the USA.

BALYO transforms standard forklift trucks into standalone intelligent robots thanks to its breakthrough proprietary Driven by Balyo™ technology. The geoguidance navigation system developed by BALYO allows vehicles equipped with the system to locate their position in real-time and navigate autonomously inside buildings/warehouses. Within the automated handling vehicle market, BALYO’s 2021 outlook includes the acceleration of profitable growth after the successful implementation of a more efficient and autonomous commercial strategy. BALYO will pursue efforts to accelerate sales in 2021, including the addition of John Hayes, a well-respected and experienced industry thought-leader, as Director of US Sales to grow North American business development. The anchoring of new operational drivers, commercial partnerships forged with integrators, and commercial autonomy through technological developments will uniquely position BALYO in 2021 and beyond.
