DF Automation’s 12 Year Journey, ECF Raise, Growth Plans Ahead, and IPO Target

In 2023 alone, investments in robotics soared to $12.9 billion, underscoring the promising outlook for the global autonomous mobile robots industry and DF Automation looks primed to ride this wave and is currently raising funds to do so. Founded in 2012, Johor-based DF Automation specialises in producing Autonomous Mobile Robot and Automated Guided Vehicle solutions with clear objectives: Optimise workflow, enhance productivity, and slash operational costs.

This year marks DF Automation’s 12th year in the industry to support their growth ambitions, they are offering between 3.6% to 9% of the company to raise between RM3 million and RM8 million on equity crowdfunding platform pitchIN. This follows a RM3 million raise on the platform back in 2019. As of 14th of February, they have achieved 43% of the funding target, valued at RM1,285,716.

We speak to Dr Yeong Che Fai, the Chairman and Co-founder of DF Automation & Robotics to get a better understanding of the value and potential of the robotics industry, and their origins and ambitions, as well as plans for the funds they are currently raising.
