NASHUA, N.H. – Waypoint Robotics this week announced it has moved into a larger manufacturing facility to accommodate growing demand for its autonomous mobile robots. The company moved from its location in Merrimack, N.H., into a new space in Nashua that will feature expanded space for production, design, engineering, quality control, and robot testing.
“The response for our Vector and MAV3K AMRs has been strong and we quickly outgrew our Merrimack, N.H., location,” said Jason Walker, CEO and co-founder of Waypoint Robotics. “We need space to ramp up production as customers transition from pilot programs into scaling their robot fleets. We also feel fortunate to remain in southern New Hampshire, an aera that has been incredibly supportive and valuable in fostering our growth.”
Waypoint, an RBR50 2019 honoree, said the new facility will include more demonstration space for customers considering an AMR for their operations. “Businesses of all sizes are having trouble attracting and retaining talent, and want to give their existing, valued workforce the tools they need to be more effective in an Industry 4.0 environment,” said Walker. “We can demonstrate how quickly Vector and MAV3K can be set up to do real work in the real world. Workers on the job today can use these tools with confidence and take pride in making their companies more efficient and competitive.”
With the new space, the company said it can host local technology and community STEM events. For example, on Tuesday, Oct. 29, the company will host the third stop on the New Hampshire Tech Alliance (NHTA) Listening Tour, designed to foster new ideas, connections, and partnerships. Members of the New Hampshire tech community and the public at large will be treated to a tour of the new facility and AMR demonstrations.
