The company Robot Makers was founded by Mr. Hillenbrand and Mr. Leroch (born Schäfer) in April 2011. The founders already led the engineering services provider H&S Robotic Solutions GbR in part-time work during their time at the Robotics Research Lab (University of Kaiserslautern) since 2009.
After handing in their dissertations, the two roboticists decided to continue the company as a full-time business. In November 2010, Mr. Hillenbrand and Mr. Leroch - together with their colleague Mr. Wettach - were awarded a business scholarship. The scholarship was granted in the context of the federal Exist Program for the preparation of the spin-off company Robot Makers. During the preparation of the application for the scholarship, the founders were supported by the "Gründungsbüro von TU & HS Kaiserslautern". Prof. Dr. Karsten Berns kindly accepted the mentoring in the context of the program. Prof. Berns is leader of the Robotics Research Lab at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern and doctoral advisor of the founders.
Today, the Robot Makers GmbH considers itself as a full-service-partner, supporting the customers energetically by the development and construction of robotic- and automation solutions and over the entire product life cycle. On the basis of the award-winning platform-based concept, it is possible to quickly and cost-efficiently realize tailored solutions for complex and extraordinary requirements.
