Locus Robotics Opens European Headquarters in Amsterdam
Leader in warehouse robotics automation expands in the Netherlands to serve European customer base
US-based Locus Robotics, a leader in autonomous mobile robots for fulfillment warehouses and distribution centers, has opened its European headquarters in Amsterdam. Positioned within the Netherlands’ logistics sector and high-tech ecosystem, the new facility will support Locus’s existing EU and UK customer base. It will also enable the company to explore new opportunities within the fast-growing European warehouse fulfillment and distribution segments.
“Our decision to expand our presence in the European market was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics. “Choosing Amsterdam gives us a central location that is ideal for serving our customer base, as well as giving us access to a vibrant and diverse talent pool to recruit from.”
New Dutch headquarters positions Locus Robotics to meet growing global demand
With warehouse fulfillment volumes increasing globally, companies are turning to automation to meet the exploding demand. In fact, Locus recently passed the half-billion picking milestone and the company’s LocusBots are now picking nearly 2 million items every day. To satisfy this rising demand, Locus honed in on the Netherlands as a gateway to the European market.
“Our Amsterdam office will allow us the flexibility to support our European clients in real time as the needs of order fulfillment continue to grow around the continent,” said Denis Niezgoda, Locus’s Vice President, Europe. “We are ideally positioned to scale and support the growing demand.”

The Netherlands supports robotics and AI innovation
The Netherlands offers the ideal environment for Locus to advance its autonomous robot solutions. Home to world-class knowledge institutions and organizations like the UN’s Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, the country is a major international hub for cutting-edge developments in this sector.
In its new Dutch location, Locus will assemble and service its award-winning autonomous mobile robot solution for the European market, providing faster deployment, management and support services across the continent.
