UBCT, which on September 29 was rebranded to UB Group, was founded in 1995 in an attempt to revolutionise inventory tracing in the semiconductor industry. The company embarked on a transformative journey, starting with a focus on specialised machine servicing within the molding industry.
By 2006, the company transitioned into research and development, specialising in material management systems and development for the semiconductor Industry. Over the years, it evolved and expanded, introducing innovative software solutions for dashboards and command centres and successfully implementing total lights-off manufacturing solutions in collaboration with their Shanghai counterpart.
In 2017, the company shifted its focus to cutting-edge automated warehouse solutions. Subsequently, a new division emerged, dedicated to AI and autonomous robotic solutions, embracing the future of automation.
The rebranding to UB Group this year reflects its commitment to advancing smart manufacturing and logistics technologies.
