Generation Robots and Dexter Industries, the third-party developer behind LEGO Mindstorm, announce a partnership with the aim of better serving their community of users on the two sides of the Atlantic.
Both companies have a common history as Generation Robots was amongst the first to distribute Dexter Industries products in France and in Europe.
With this mutual collaboration Generation Robots will become the exclusive reseller for Dexter Industries products in European countries and Dexter Industries will make HumaRobotics current and upcoming products available for American customers with nationwide support. HumaRobotics is the engineering brand of Generation Robots, providing hardware and software add-ons as well as consultancy services to educational robots.
?Dexter Industries and Generation Robots teams share the same passion for robotics. We have the common goal of making robots and associated technologies easily available, affordable and easy to use for people wanting to experiment with robots.
We want to enable scientists, engineers and hobbyists to put together real-life applications. We are in touch with some great minds and what we want is to bring great robot parts and sensors for them to create amazing robots! ? says John Cole, founder of Dexter Industries.
Jerome Laplace, CEO and founder of Generation Robots states ?We have been collaborating with the team at Dexter Industries for a few years now and we definitely have many things in common. Our companies have an extensive knowledge regarding the needs and projects of hobbyists and educators.
These communities are very important to us and we are committed to continue supplying innovative hardware and software to them. We grew up being the generation of computers and IT.
