NDO/VNA – Zorabots, a company specialised in robot and automation in Eastern Belgium, is looking towards Vietnam as a potential market.

Fabrice Goffin, co-founder and CEO of Zorabots said their robots can speak 53 languages including Vietnamese.

Explaining why he chose Vietnam for expansion, Goffin said he has read reports on the vibrant and potential Vietnamese automation market. Besides, before the global pandemic, Vietnam hosted multiple automation exhibitions and fairs with the participation of many prestigious technology and industrial automation companies.

“For a potential country like Vietnam, we will have many opportunities to expand,” the Zorabots CEO said.

Zorabots is currently working with its Vietnamese partners to quickly make its appearance in this market.

“We want to focus on education and health, which are two sectors requiring the support of robots and technology, especially education. Vietnam should prepare its younger generations well since they will master technology in all aspects of life", Goffin emphasised.

Zorabots was founded by two tech enthusiasts, Fabrice Goffin and Tommy Deblieck, in 2011. The company now has branches in the US, Canada, Australia, Africa and serves customers all over the world. Zorabots computer engineers create software for robots according to customer needs.

Zarobots is installing robots at airports in the Netherlands and France to guide passengers in complying with COVID-19 prevention regulations. The company is pursuing the development of different robot models to serve more people in the coming time.
