BALYO partnered with Daiso USA driving automation and distribution efficiency. DAISO, known for its wide selection of high-quality household products at an affordable price is growing; opening on average 10~20 stores every month globally. With 2,620 stores in Japan and 587 stores overseas, DAISO has been able to purchase each item in the millions to ensure the lowest cost possible for the consumer, yet never compromising its standard of quality. DAISO understands the growing need of an affordable product due to rising living costs.
Mike Manalac, Director of Distribution and Logistics at Daiso USA shared why the company chose BALYO, “We looked at several providers and after we got introduced to the BALYO team, we thought they would be great at helping us with our haul out. We had people picking up pallets, dropping them, moving too fast, they didn’t follow any safety, they didn’t follow any routes we planned out and after looking at the BALYO solution, they came in and helped us with that process, they integrated the robot into the path, they were able to slow down the traffic, and they were able to reduce damage. The robot comes in, does its job. I can rely on it. The team can rely on it. It’s definitely a big morale boost.”
“I have a lot of experience with deploying automation and distribution centers in warehouses. We have worked with ARS systems, various conveyors, various sorters; I would say the flexibility that the BALYO robot offers us is something that helps me meet my short-term objectives and also helps me meet my long-term vision,” added Manalac.

Pascal Rialland, CEO of BALYO and leader in the design and development of innovative robotic solutions for material handling trucks, shared that BALYO considerably strengthened commercial development prospects. The company is counting on an enhanced technological platform which reduces sales cycles and benefiting from the ramp-up of direct sales to complement existing indirect sales channels. The direct sales channel is now fully operational in the USA.
The geoguidance navigation system developed by BALYO allows vehicles equipped with the system to locate their position in real-time and navigate autonomously inside buildings/warehouses. Within the automated handling vehicle market, BALYO’s 2021 outlook includes the acceleration of profitable growth after the successful implementation of a more efficient and autonomous commercial strategy. BALYO will pursue efforts to accelerate sales in 2021, including the addition of John Hayes, a well-respected and experienced industry thought-leader, as Director of US Sales to grow North American business development. The anchoring of new operational drivers, commercial partnerships forged with integrators, and commercial autonomy through technological developments will uniquely position BALYO in 2021 and beyond.
