GreyOrange, the global leader in AI-powered robots, raised $140m in Series C funding – the largest round ever raised by an industrial robotics company – to accelerate its US expansion and plans to develop next generation of flexible supply chain systems.

The new funds will enable GreyOrange to fulfill its vision of developing and deploying intuitive, flexible and scalable solutions for end-to-end automation across the supply chain, from factories to fulfillment centers, and beyond.

GreyOrange plans to build on the strong growth it has experienced over the past five years by expanding operations across Asia, Europe and the U.S.

To that end, the company recently established its U.S. headquarters and manufacturing facility in Atlanta, Georgia, and launched a major R&D center in Boston, Massachusetts.

Mithril Capital, co-founded by Ajay Royan and Peter Thiel, led this round, which included Binny Bansal and other existing investors including Blume Ventures.
