As the SBA Group’s robotics and automation solution company Robotex begins strategic development in Lithuania and plans to enter foreign markets, the company is strengthening its management and expanding its team. As a result, their strategy implementation, organisational development and business development, as well as the client as customer acquisition functions, are to be separated, while Tomas Jakimavičius has been appointed the director of Robotex following a stint as the development head for Lietuvos Geležinkeliai.

“Innovation and effectiveness are core conditions for our clients to grow under conditions of global competition, and with the need for robotics and automation innovations growing in the manufacturing sector, we see vast potential for Robotex to expand in Lithuania and beyond. Focused and global partnership-based expansion is a core element of the new strategy. By expanding our team with experienced professionals and focusing the current leaders’ responsibilities, we can further bolster our competitive advantage and the preconditions for the company’s growth,” says board chairman Kęstutis Bagdonavičius.

As the new head of Robotex, Jakimavičius will be responsible for the company’s strategy implementation as well as development and expansion. He previously headed the development of Lietuvos Geležinkeliai’s business for almost three years and worked at the SBA Group and business consultancy PricewaterhouseCoopers.

“Robotex’s ambitious business vision and goals that the company sets itself are inspiring - robotics and automation are directions that businesses in both Lithuania and the region must develop to successfully compete at the global level, and our goal is for Robotex to play an even greater role in this technological transformation,” he says.

Departing Robotex director Vytautas Kazlauskas will lead the business development section, tasked with a strategic partnership, sales, innovations and product creation.

“We have grown out of the clothes of a compact company, and so upon entering a stage of rapid growth, we need reinforcement and a clearer division of functions. We set a clear goal to grow by at least 50 per cent every year, and this demands intensive work in seeking new business opportunities. Business and sales development are my strong suits, and we decided to strengthen the team starting from the director position. Tomas is a valuable member of the team with his experience and competencies in the finance sector, while I will dedicate most of my attention to business and sales development in Lithuania and abroad, as well as to new strategic partnerships,” says Kazlauskas.
