It provides components, engineering, product manufacturing, installation, and aftermarket support for Automatic Guided Vehicle systems. It also supplies individual components to other suppliers of AGVs. Their Automatic Guided Vehicle Systems use the latest vehicle navigation and guidance technology as well as operations software that, when combined, create comprehensive, reliable systems to the market.
Transbotics was founded in 1982 as the North American affiliate of
Netzler & DahlgrenCo. AB ("Netzler & Dahlgren"), a Swedish company, to acquire or license Netzler & Dahlgren control technologies and products for Automated Guided Vehicles (“AGVs”) and to enhance, modify, and otherwise adapt them for use by customers in North America. On March 28, 1990, the Company successfully completed its initial public offering. On November 30, 2000, the Company’s license agreement with Netzler & Dahlgren was modified to allow the Company to pursue end user AGV business worldwide on a nonexclusive basis. In 2001, the Company started doing business under the name Transbotics Corporation and officially changed its corporate name from NDC Automation, Inc. through charter amendment in 2002. Netzler & Dahlgren, meanwhile, became Danaher Motion Systems, and it continues to supply proprietary control technology and products to Transbotics Corporation. The Company also licenses proprietary guidance and navigation technology from Frog Navigation, robotics from KUKA, and various other companies, thereby ensuring customers access to current technology for any situation.
