Last summer was a bit of a love story with our Husqvarna Automower (if you missed it then check out here).
Production of robotic mowers has been ongoing for 22 years and in 2006 its Newton Aycliffe factory began the manufacturing of its flagship product. In the height of the season it can see around 3,000 models produced per day.
It takes, on average, input from 72 staff to produce each robotic mower and the factory currently employs 1,154 people to produce machines which are exported worldwide.
22 years of innovation
Extensive knowledge and experience built into the products mean reliable, safe and proven machines. With a mindset of continually making improvements, the Group’s robotic mowers have become more robust, easier to install and use and can handle even more complex gardens.
A robotic mower is energy efficient and has almost no emissions during use. The electricity consumption for maintaining a 1,000m² lawn is approximately equal to a 60W light bulb.
Today it is possible to control, program and track your robotic mower via a smartphone or tablet app, meaning you can be in control no matter where you are.
Since the very first robotic mower, time and effort has been invested in order to reduce the product’s noise level to a minimum and now machines work in an almost silent manner, meaning peaceful, environmentally friendly mowing across the world.
Kai Wärn, CEO and President for Husqvarna Group said: “Celebrating 1,000,000 environmentally friendly robotic mowers is a milestone for the Group. More than twenty years ago, we created the robotic mower market and have developed the market ever since. We naturally have a strong market leadership within this category while many of our competitors still are fairly new in the market. We see that in many countries the market for robotic mowers remains small, while others have grown substantially – meaning sizeable growth opportunities in this exciting segment remains. Our aim is to maintain our leadership position by providing the most reliable, safe and efficient products and solutions.”
