We are pleased to announce that the board of ZenRobotics Ltd has appointed Dr. Jarmo Ruohonen as new CEO. Dr. Ruohonen will be responsible for accelerating the company’s growth trajectory and expanding its product portfolio to respond to the
numerous and evolving needs of the recycling industry.

“ZenRobotics has taken several steps in the past few years to strengthen its market position and help its customers derive higher value from waste with AI and robotics. Jarmo’s appointment and his extensive technology background will reinforce our product leadership and ensure that ZenRobotics stays at the forefront of automation solutions for the waste industry”, says Benedetto Staccia, Chairman of the Board of ZenRobotics.

“With smart automation and digitalization waste operators can improve their operations, business performance and workers’ safety, making the circular economy a reality. ZenRobotics’ intelligent robots and data insights help our customers recover valuable materials and keep them in circulation in a profitable, efficient and easy way”, says new CEO Jarmo Ruohonen.

Last year, ZenRobotics signed its biggest and most advanced projects to date despite the turbulent times of Covid-19. The year 2021 is off to a strong start and promises further acceleration of sales.

“We are particularly proud of the lighthouse projects that will be completed this year, including two next generation recycling facilities by our long-term customers Remeo and Eberhard which are the two largest recycling robot installations in the world. These major investments confirm that the transition to a fully digitalized waste industry is fast under way. We expect to see many more bold initiatives that advance the industry’s development”, continues Dr. Ruohonen. 

Prior to ZenRobotics, Dr. Ruohonen was global Business Leader at Philips and has held leadership positions in several technology companies. Dr. Ruohonen originally joined ZenRobotics in August 2020 as Vice President for R&D.
