13 years ago, the starting signal was given for a journey into the future. Today, myRobotcenter proudly looks back on many exciting stations and successful projects. From the idea to the expert for household robotics - a short story.

The Founding of myRobotcenter
How do you get rid of tedious, repetitive work? Exactly, you outsource them. This is already standard practice for washing clothes and cleaning dishes. But when it comes to vacuuming or mowing the lawn, it gets more difficult, because here individual needs meet unique problems. The solution is robotic household helpers.
With this antipathy to housework and the knowledge of the technical possibilities in the future, Mag. (FH) Christian Sommer and Mag. Daniel Ströhle founded the company myRobotcenter with a focus on household robots. In Vorarlberg, Austria, the main office with showroom and in-house repair and service center was established. In the beginning, 5 employees worked in the areas of sales, repair, marketing, and customer service. Additionally, to the sales of household robots in their store, myRobotcenter offers as well a wide range of robot hoovers, robot lawn mowers, and pool cleaning robots via their online stores in Austria and Germany. In 2010, the opening of a 2nd branch office with a showroom in Innsbruck followed.

Focus on online stores and new locations

From 2012 onwards, the focus was set on online stores and modernization. In the same year, myRobotcenter launched another online shop in Switzerland and Lichtenstein. In the following year, the headquarters of myRobotcenter moved to a new location. The main office and the showroom in Vorarlberg are now located at “Am Garnmarkt” in Götzis. In 2014, the new corporate design in cooperation with the agency MassiveArt was implemented and the relaunch of the new website with online stores, corporate site, and corporate blog took place. Additionally, as the new face of myRobotcenter, Roby our mascot and expert was born. The branch office in Innsbruck also moved to new facilities. In 2015, two further online stores - one for the UK and one for the EU - went online. After German and English, the web presence in French followed in 2017 including the online store for France.

Celebration and positioning as an expert for household robots
In 2018, the myRobotcenter GmbH celebrated its 10th anniversary and can proudly look back on the last decade. A simple web store has grown into a pan-European specialty store for household robots with a 3-language web presence and 5 online stores. The anniversary was crowned by an unforgettable event during the 70th Dornbirn Exhibition.
For years, the Dornbirn exhibition has been an ideal platform to present itself to a broad audience with various special show topics. In 2018, myRobotcenter organized the special exhibition called "Future is now". The topic of robotics was taken up and made tangible for the 70,000 visitors by means of a perfect mix of innovations, special features, and impulses. 

Expansion of the range with innovative household helpers and cordless devices

Further robotic household helpers are continuously added to the product range. In addition to well-known brands such as iRobot, Husqvarna, or Gardena, young start-ups and new product ideas are supported financially and with know-how in the area of distribution. In 2019, the Spanish company Cecotec with its stylish handheld vacuum cleaners was added to the portfolio. By the year 2020, mobile air conditioners and air purifiers followed, and later battery-powered gardening appliances

The future is robotic

myRobotcenter will continue to offer high-quality and innovative household helpers to its customers throughout Europe. By means of competent expert advice in the respective national languages and various service offerings, myRobotcenter aims to continuously improve the buying experience of its customers in theirs online stores. As well as to strengthen its status as an expert for household robots.
