Berkshire Grey announces the completion of its new Robotics Innovation Center and headquarters in Bedford, MA. Berkshire Grey is a manufacturer of warehouse automation solutions that enable the automated picking and packout of customer orders for ecommerce fulfillment. The companies solutions combine multiple automated solutions and the innovation center enables Berkshire Grey to demonstrate a complete working solution to potential clients, without the need to engage existing clients to share their implementations.
Everyone in the business knows the value of customer references, yet it’s difficult to leverage existing customer implementations during the sales process when there potential trade secrets at play. The new innovation center showcases Berkshire Grey’s capabilities to customers, partners, and investors, as seen the following video:
“Our new Innovation Center is strategically located in the Boston metro area allowing us to leverage the strong regional talent pool in AI and robotics. This center provides the space needed to continue our technology development and to help our customers adapt and transform their supply chain operations. Competitive pressures and increasing consumer expectations continue to fuel the need for our technologies,” says Tom Wagner, CEO at Berkshire Grey. “We are pleased to be a part of the Boston technology ecosystem and look forward to utilizing the new Innovation Center as a workplace for our growing team.”
The new center complements other design and test facilities in the region and provides a focal point for customers, investors, and technical activities. Today, Berkshire Grey has US offices in Bedford, MA, Lexington, MA, and Pittsburgh, PA. Internationally, Berkshire Grey’s EMEA headquarters is in Reading, UK. The company also has subsidiaries in Canada and Japan, as disclosed in May.
As previously announced, on February 24, 2021, Berkshire Grey entered into a definitive agreement with Revolution Acceleration Acquisition Corp (Nasdaq: RAAC) that is expected to result in Berkshire Grey becoming a publicly listed company early in the third quarter of 2021, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including approval by the stockholders of Revolution Acceleration Acquisition Corp.
