The management of the Hamburg-based AGV manufacturer ek robotics has been expanded with Martin C. Klein and Andreas Lindemann, two experienced managers have been added to the management team. Andreas J. Böttner joins the company's new advisory board in July.

As of March 1, 2024, ek robotics GmbH has appointed industry experts Martin Klein and Andreas Lindemann as Managing Directors in order to strengthen the company for its continued growth.

Martin Klein has more than three decades of experience at C-level in the automotive sector and has held various management positions with international responsibility at Daimler in Germany and the USA as well as at Recaro Automotive Seating and Remy Automotive. At ek robotics, Martin Klein is responsible for Sales, Service, Engineering and Information Technology. "I am looking forward to supporting the ek robotics team in its next growth steps. With innovative products, smart transport solutions and high-performance service, we can participate in a very dynamic market, make our customers' internal logistics efficient and thus achieve sustainable, successful growth ourselves," says Martin Klein.
Andreas Lindemann strengthens ek robotics with his decades of experience in management positions in the automotive and aviation industries (including Mercedes-Benz, Airbus and Recaro Aircraft Seating). He is responsible for the areas of Finance, Operations, Procurement & Supply Chain Management and Quality Management. "I would like to support the dynamic development of ek robotics with my experience in efficient and robust processes. Together with the entire ek robotics team, we will prepare for a new chapter in the company's history with our "Top Fit" efficiency program," says Andreas Lindemann.
The shareholders have also set up an advisory board for ek robotics GmbH, which will support the management in strategic decisions and corporate planning. The advisory board is optimally positioned with three internationally experienced top managers: Joachim Coers (Chairman of the Advisory Board), former CEO of TOGNUM AG / MTU Friedrichshafen, Dieter Becker, CEO of WTS Advisory and Dr. Joachim von der Goltz, Senior Advisor and former Head of Equity Capital Markets at leading international investment banks.
Andreas Böttner, who has been with the company since 2011 and has led the company on a growth path as Managing Director since 2018, will join the Advisory Board in July 2024 and complete the committee with around 15 years of industry expertise. The Management Board and Advisory Board have also invested in the company as part of their entry, meaning that a new chapter in ek robotics' history will begin in 2024, both in terms of personnel and finances.
