EUnited Robotics to Join VDMA, Europe's Largest Industry Association

EUnited Robotics and VDMA Robotics + Automation merge to create one strong platform for the European robotics industry. The members of EUnited Robotics will be represented by VDMA R+A as of January 2023.

“We will combine our resources in one strong European platform to leverage the benefits of automation in Europe. This will boost our efficiency to develop standards for the smart factory of the future, address regulatory issues and promote a human centric future of work,” says Wilfried Eberhardt, Chairman of EUnited Robotics. 

13 European countries – 370+ member companies

“VDMA Robotics + Automation unites more than 370 member companies from 13 European countries,” says Patrick Schwarzkopf, Managing Director of VDMA Robotics + Automation. “We look forward to continuing the full range of activities currently carried out by EUnited Robotics, such as the European Robotics Summit, public advocacy and the Good Work Charter campaign. This is truly a win-win for the European robotics industry.”

New synergies to emerge

Klaus-Dieter Axt, Executive Director of EUnited AISBL, adds:
“The close cooperation between EUnited Robotics and VDMA R+A is already well established and reflected in the large overlap of membership in the two association platforms. With this strategic decision, EUnited Robotics’ members will benefit from new synergies and enjoy the full range of services that the VDMA offers. We will continue the good spirit of cooperation between EUnited and VDMA Robotics + Automation in the future.”
