Luca de Meo, Chairman of the Executive Committee of SEAT, was the guest speaker at the latest session of Matins ESADE, sponsored by Bluecap.
According to Mr. de Meo, the development of Industry 4.0 offers new opportunities for the Spanish automotive industry. ''About 10% of the industrial robots in Spain can be found in our plant in Martorell,'' noted Mr. de Meo. SEAT has already begun to incorporate major elements of Industry 4.0 into its manufacturing facilities – 3D glasses, exoskeletons for line workers, etc. – and is the Spanish company that invests the most in research and development, specifically 10% of its turnover (or 3% of all R&D spending nationwide).
