The close cooperation with our customers and suppliers is the basis for this.

Das sagen unsere Kunden und Partner
über unsere Produkte und Dienstleistungen.

Building materials dealer Groen & Janssen

Long, heavy and sensitive goods place special safety requirements on careful transport logistics. In combination with limited storage space and narrow rack aisles, conventional forklift trucks quickly reach their limits. That's why, in only two years, Groen & Janssen invested in four Hubtex multi-directional sideloaders to optimize its material flow.

Volkswagen plant Wolfsburg

A new multidirectional tool changer from the special purpose vehicles manufacturer HUBTEX was especially designed for the application at the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg Germany for transporting and changing injection moulding tools.

Kronospan Swiss AG

Kronospan Schweiz AG relies on the EZK 35 picking platform with vacuum suction device for semi-automatic picking of high-quality chipboard, which has been supplemented by Hubtex and Rohrer-Marti AG with a number of functions for positioning, centering and binding.

Induktives Laden

Choice of charging technology is key to the efficient use of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) in intralogistics. The aim is to supply the vehicle with energy as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, while maximising the internal material flow. To achieve this, HUBTEX is forming a partnership with INTIS. 

HUBTEX was responsible for introducing the PhoeniX AGV — the world's first fully automated electric multidirectional sideloader for handling long, heavy and bulky goods. Now, thanks to an inductive charging system from INTIS, the vehicle's 48 V lithium-ion battery can be supplied with a charging current of 400 A contactlessly and wirelessly. The same concept can then be transferred to all HUBTEX vehicles with electric drives.
