Singapore's first collaborative robot production facility was launched on 26 February 2018, by Korean industrial robot company Hanwha Techwin and local precision engineering firm PBA Group. The partnership is a first of its kind between a listed Fortune 500 company and a Singapore SME.

The new Singapore-based facility, located at Yishun Industrial Park, will manufacture a co-branded range of collaborative robots, known for their ability to work alongside humans in a shared workspace. They can perform simple tasks such as picking and placing items, palletising, screw-driving, polishing and dispensing - helping companies automate manual work as well as cut investment and operating expenses.
