These machines store and retrieve thousands of medical products quickly and reliably. The brand Apostore continues providing sophisticated solutions for both retail pharmacies and wholesalers.

Then and today

The success story of the company began in 1986 with the construction of the world's first storage and retrieval robot. Today KNAPP Smart Solutions employs 140 people worldwide. The machines support the daily work routine of pharmacies efficiently and help to optimise the stock management.
