Expansion to Accommodate Growth of Robotics Utilization in Warehousing and Manufacturing
Pittsburgh — December 16, 2009 — Seegrid Corporation (www.seegrid.com), providing distribution centers, warehouses and manufacturing facilities with industrial mobile robots, today announced that the company is expanding and moving its Pittsburgh headquarters to a 30,000-square-foot facility near Pittsburgh International Airport. The expansion, intended to better prepare Seegrid for increasing demand and orders, will bring additional jobs to the Pittsburgh area in 2010 and beyond.
“Because Seegrid sells a product that promotes efficiency and productivity, the recession has worked to our advantage,” said Scott Freidman, CEO, Seegrid Corp. “Today our robots are working every day alongside workers in various environments, from distribution to manufacturing. Our robots reduce the cost of pallet movement by up to 80 percent and boost overall productivity and profitability.”
Seegrid’s industrial mobile robots include its GP8 (Robotic Pallet Truck, 8000 lb. capacity) and GT3 (Robotic Tugger, 3000 lb.capacity), which automate the transport of products throughout warehouses, distribution centers and manufacturing floors. Seegrid robots are used to perform putaway and long-haul functions in warehouses, and parts delivery and end-of-line product movement in manufacturing facilities.
The expansion is intended to house Seegrid’s growing operations, including design and engineering, sales, assembly and implementation. Seegrid also operates an office and production facility in Lowell, Mass.
