Five minutes with
Paul Nagy,
General Manager,
Konecranes Agilon

Can you please share a little about yourself with our visitors?

I am the general manager for Agilon in the UK, I have worked for Konecranes for over 10 years with various responsibilities and have over 25 years manufacturing operations experience. Today I act as a supply chain technical consultant assisting customers to optimise their materials management processes.

Can you please tell us why you chose to exhibit at Robotics and Automation 2017?

We have chosen to exhibit at the Robotics and Automation Show to gain greater product awareness for Agilon in the UK market place. We believe that the Robotics and Automation exhibition, based on IntraLogisteX which we attended earlier this year, will provide us with a great platform because visitors are restricted to end-users only and are coming because they are seeking support for a particular need.

What will you be sharing with visitors to the exhibition?

At the show we will be exhibiting a fully working demonstration unit that visitors can try for themselves, provide material for them to take away and also some free give-aways.

What do you feel are the biggest challenges facing the industry at the moment?

Our systems have the ability to span many industries from manufacturing to retail. From my point of view the most significant challenge is to maintain/create transparency and control through joined up and integrated processes, whilst meeting the challenge of an ever increasing faster demand driven customer base.
