Waypoint Robotics moves to larger facility to ‘meet growing demand’ for its warehouse robots

Waypoint Robotics has moved to a larger facility to meet what it says “growing demand” for its autonomous mobile robots. Among the products the company supplies is the MAV3K, an AMR with the capacity to lift 3000 lb.

The new, larger manufacturing facility in Nashua, New Hampshire. The new location features expanded space for production, design, engineering, quality control, and robot testing.

Jason Walker, CEO and co-founder of Waypoint, says: “The response for our Vector and MAV3K AMRs has been strong and we quickly outgrew our Merrimack, New Hampshire location. 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 area that has been incredibly supportive and valuable in fostering our growth.”

The new facility allows for more demonstration space for customers considering this relatively new technology to enhance their operation.

Walker says: “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.

“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 this larger location, Waypoint says it can also welcome local tech and community STEM events, such as the recent New Hampshire Tech Alliance Listening Tour, designed to foster new ideas, connections, and partnerships.

Members of the New Hampshire tech community and the public at large were treated to a tour of the new facility and autonomous mobile robot demonstrations.
