Balyo logo

Founded in 2005, Balyo designs, develops and markets totally innovative handling robots. Thanks to its navigation technology, unique inside buildings, Balyo transforms standard forklift trucks into standalone intelligent robots, capable of working alongside human operators. The technological breakthrough introduced by Balyo has permitted fleets of robots to navigate in warehouses or in factories without any additional infrastructures.

In 2015, Balyo signed a partnership with the European leader in material handling, Linde Material Handling, for the common commercialisation of a unique range of smart robots. Building on this success, in 2016 Balyo signed a second partnership with the American specialist in material handling Hyster-Yale to increase growth in the Americas. Today the company has 90 employees and offices around the world.
