Keenon Robotics showcased its entire product line of restaurant service robots, hotel service robots, and disinfection robots at Robot World 2021 this week in South Korea. Keenon robots have been deployed in more than 30 countries with over ten thousand clients served worldwide by Q3 2021.
The latest products by Keenon Robotic are equipped with fully automatic positioning and navigation technology, allowing the robots to adapt to various commercial environments. Keenon Robotics’ robots are able to operate around-the-clock due to obstacle avoidance abilities, multi-unit collaboration, and automatic charging, helping users to achieve contactless delivery, reduce human labor costs, and improve guest experience.
“Keenon Robotics has over 10 years of experience in commercial service robots and has developed diverse product lines with consistent performance and accumulated strong experience in implementing our robotics solutions,” said, Jerry Zhang, Keenon Robotics’ sales director of Korean market.
In May 2020, Keenon Robotics’ food delivery robots were introduced to Storant, one of the world’s first 24-hour contactless robot cafés, which opens in Daejeon, South Korea and uses robots to deliver coffee to designated tables. The use of Keenon robots effectively minimizes human contact, ensures the health and safety of employees and customers and improves the café’s operating efficiency.
The South Korean government promotes the country’s transition policy to a smart society and the development of a people-oriented economy that is encouraging the use of robotics technologies, to actively cope with the rising labor force and an aging society.
“In the Korean market, we’re focusing on the food & beverage and healthcare sectors. We believe there’s huge potential for the commercial service robot market here,” said Zhang. “With the most advanced robotics solutions, we’re able to help local businesses including restaurants and hotels to minimize labor costs and optimize operating efficiency.”
Keenon Robotics recently opened its Korean office in Seoul. Also, according to Zhang, the company has been continuously expanding its Korean team and looking for local business partners to provide more localized technical support and services for the Korean market. In September 2021, Keenon Robotics raised $200 million in series D funding led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2. The company has also announced a global strategic partnership with SoftBank Robotics and jointly launched food delivery robot Keenbot in the Asia Pacific market.
