Our Vision

Only when children get acquainted with nowadays technological developments and are starting to understand it by doing simple technology projects on elementary school already, step-by-step they will get interested to start a technical study when they are a little older.

Working together

AREXX Engineering is full of enthusiasm to promote technology among youth. We are present at various events that are organized for schools in this area. The cooperation between Education and the Business world is of great importance in this.

To adapt the SchoolLab series to the Western educational systems, there is a continuous development of new products and improvement of existing products. These activities either take place or are coordinated from The Netherlands by AREXX Engineering.

AREXX Engineering was founded in 1993 in Zwolle, The Netherlands. Over the years, the activities of our company gradually changed from importing tools for electronic hobby to developing educational products.

Already many years ago, AREXX was the first company to introduce educational robots (MOVIT robots) to Europe, importing them from Japan. In Japan, these robots were broadly used for school projects.

Although in The Netherlands these robots sold well as toys, we noticed that these Far East products did not match the European educational systems. Because we wanted to focus on our educational home market, we decided to develop our own range of products that do comply with the requirements for educational purposes in the Western world.

AREXX also developes custom made projects and has other partnerships:

  • We have a cooperation with DLR (the German Centre of Aviation and Aerspace Technology). AREXX produces the ASURO Robot which was developed by DLRfor educational use.
  • With Conrad Electronic in Germany, we developed the RP6 programmable robot

Our People

Through our broad worldwide network, we met our current partner in China and set up the AREXX Intelligence Centre together. The main purpose of this company is competitive Research & Development and manufacturing activities. Chinese Engineers, educated at the best China Universities, doing their R&D job in close cooperation with and under supervision of our European engineers.

The SchoolLab educational kits fit best into the European educational market, better than those fully developed in Asia which are generally developed for an “Asian mind”. The AREXX Intelligence Centre is the perfect combination of European R&D and feeling with the market and Asian knowledge and efficiency of production.
