Avidbots expands availability of the Neo floor scrubbing robot to South Korea

With the Neo autonomous floor-scrubbing robot boosting productivity daily at locations in Singapore and Japan, demand for Neo across Asia is accelerating. Today, Avidbots is excited to announce a partnership with Daeduck International to bring Neo to South Korea.

Avidbots is the maker of Neo, a purpose-built commercial floor-cleaning robot that integrates state-of-the-art navigation technology with hardware designed for ease of use, longevity, serviceability, safety and high productivity.

Established in 1995, Daeduck International is a leading South Korean distributor of commercial hardware, including sweepers, floor scrubbers and construction equipment. The company will provide sales and service for Neo from its headquarters in Pohang-si.

South Korea becomes the fourth Asian market to adopt the Neo floor-scrubbing robot. Following a successful launch in Singapore, Neo is deployed at Changi Airport plus a range of healthcare, education and retail locations there, while in Japan, travelers will see the robot supporting operations at Kansai Airport. In 2018, Avidbots opened a regional office in Hong Kong with a focus on direct sales and support entry into mainland China.

“Asia is an important market for Avidbots and we’re delighted to add South Korea to the growing list of countries in which Neo is available,” said Faizan Sheikh, Avidbots CEO. “Daeduck International shares our commitment to maximizing human potential through world-class robotics. We look forward to seeing Neo support facility operations teams throughout South Korea.”
