Can New Markets And New Machines Assemble More Value At KUKA?

(Editor's Note: Investors should be mindful of the risks in transacting in illiquid securities such as KUKAY. Higher liquidity is available in some of KUKA's European listings.)

Robots still have a bit of the "gee whiz" about them, even if they've been on site in automobile plants for almost 50 years now.
