Singapore, 20 February 2023 - JE Cleantech Holdings Limited (Nasdaq: JCSE), (the “Company”), a Singapore-based cleantech company, today announced that it has entered an exclusive partnership with a leading Singapore-based deep tech robot developer, through its subsidiary JCS-Echigo Pte Ltd. As part of the joint venture, JE Cleantech will develop a family of commercial cleaning robots, representing its expansion into the robotics market.
JE Cleantech is the leading manufacturer of precision cleaning systems in Singapore, with customers in a wide range of sectors, including cleaning and equipment manufacturing for hard disk drives, semiconductors, biomedical, food and beverage, and industrial electronics companies, and most recently tech hardware. The entry into this new sector continues to demonstrate JE Cleantech’s ability to apply its expertise to different sectors to scale and support its growth.
Specifically, under this partnership, JE Cleantech will provide product specifications, cleaning and vacuum technology, manufacturing and production of robots as well as international and local marketing. Its partner will integrate JCS-E’s cleaning technology with its autonomous robot platform and cloud-based fleet management system, and will provide specialty electronics as well as robotic engineering to create a new cleaning robot that is set to surpass many of today’s existing solutions.
Low-speed commercial robots for the last mile, inter-building (via sidewalks), and intra-building have a global market potential of more than USD 100 billion per year and a potential of SGD 1 billion in Singapore. Factors such as the increasing demand for automatic cleaning, the development of hygienic solutions to disinfect floors, as well as an optimistic economic outlook, and positive demographics in APAC are driving forces for the market’s growth.
“We are excited to enter the new robotics market to develop advanced commercial cleaning robots. With years of experience and a stable and mature performance, our cleaning technology will provide our customers with an exceptional autonomous cleaning solution. It demonstrates our continuous efforts and determination in striving for sustainable growth as well as confidence in the positive prospects of the cleaning market.
