In order to remain the best partner in telescopic slides, Thomas Regout has made some major improvements in their factory in Maastricht. Among others, the company decided to run a long-term rental period of the GoPal 400 to find out if the GoPal solution is the right choice for their business. “We came to the conclusion that it would be interesting to set up a rental agreement”. So far, the company is very enthusiastic about the GoPal Autonomous Mobile Robots and they have put a full installation of three to four GoPal into their budget for 2021.
