New Investor

Danish robotics company is stepping up its game with fresh capital and strengthens its ownership group with one of Odense’s major robotics investors.

Autonomous Units is receiving new capital from existing investors as well as by adding a new significant investor from Funen. This strategic expansion supports the company’s ambitions for further growth and international expansion.


Nearly four years ago, Flemming Thinggaard launched Autonomous Units from a modest garage project. The following year, Søren Bjerre and Karsten Thinggaard joined as co-founders. Today, the company has evolved into a leading innovator in the delivery of service and infotainment robots, with specialized solutions particularly suited for sectors like healthcare, airports, exhibition centers, and shopping centers.


The recent capital increase with Vejle-based Hands-on Mikrofond, along with several major investors from the environment around this fund, and the addition of Robot-investor Søren Juul as a co-owner, strengthens the company’s financial and strategic position. “Autonomous Units is an exciting company with global and scalable potential. Focusing on the good customer experience using collaborative robots aligns very well with the other investments I have made,” explains Søren Juul Jørgensen from Juul Holding, who knows Flemming Thinggaard from their shared time at MIR.


The company’s first product area, disinfection robots, continues to evolve and be used in the healthcare sector, with the DMD4000 robot in operation at institutions like Bispebjerg Hospital. The infotainment robots, called Gallery, are already making their mark in public spaces in both Denmark and Germany, and the company is working on expanding their presence globally.

“I am very proud that what started nearly 4 years ago as a garage project has now become an established company. We have also succeeded in gradually moving beyond the country’s borders,” Flemming Thinggaard says and continues:

“The potential for service robots is huge and they are on the verge of a major breakthrough. In these fast changing environments, collaborative robots like AMR have a special strength.”

In connection with the capital increase, there will be changes in the daily management, as Karsten Thinggaard continues in a more advisory role in the company’s Advisory Board. Flemming Thinggaard will continue as managing director and Søren Bjerre in the commercial role.
