GreyOrange expands global footprint, opens U.S. headquarters in Atlanta
GreyOrange, the global specialist in AI-powered robotics systems for flexible automation in distribution and fulfillment centers, is establishing its U.S Headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.
To better serve local customers and meet market demands, the company has announced 50 new open positions across various departments. In its first client site in the U.S., GreyOrange will deploy 740 robots in Atlanta, and create several thousand jobs across this and other initial client sites.
In the next three years, the facility plans to manufacture and deploy an additional 20,000 robots in the U.S.
The company has been recognised as one of the world's Top 50 Robotics Companies every year since 2016, and the co-founders have been acknowledged as top 35 global innovators by MIT Technology Review.
GreyOrange is also opening a research and development (R&D) center in Boston, Massachusetts, to further expand its technology development capability and propel innovation in robotics logistics.
The company said it plans to build a team of more than 60 engineers for R&D in AI, human-machine interface (HMI), machine vision and data intelligence, adding to the current global team of 250 R&D engineers.
Atlanta and Boston were selected for their respective reputations for excellence in supply chain and emerging tech.
To drive GreyOrange’s rapid growth in this market, GreyOrange recently hired Chris Barber to lead as Regional CEO, North America.
He was a key member of the senior management of Intelligrated, a leader in supply chain and warehouse automation solutions before its acquisition by Honeywell in 2016.
In his new role, Barber will oversee GreyOrange’s expansion starting with the U.S., bringing supply chain innovation and streamlined solutions powered by AI to e-commerce, retail and logistics customers.
“GreyOrange is the world’s largest supply chain robotics company and the global leader of robotics technology for operating flexible automated warehouses,” said Samay Kohli, CEO & Co-Founder at GreyOrange.
“With our expansion into the United States and Chris Barber as our Regional CEO, we will transform warehouse processes and efficiency and enhance employee engagement and retention, bringing it on par with tech jobs.
Embracing robots, who work hand-in-hand with humans, enables our customers to boost overall productivity, minimise inventory waste, increase consumer choice and improve their company’s bottom line.”
