Motoman breaks ground at new headquarters
By Mary Del
Motoman Robotics has begun construction of its new facility in Miamisburg, Ohio. The new facility will serve as Motoman Robotics’ headquarters and main manufacturing facility for its North and South American operations.
The company held a groundbreaking ceremony earlier this month, where its SDA10D dual-arm robot, known as Dexter Bot, donned a hard hat and turned the first shovel of dirt. Motoman executives and local officials also took turns breaking ground.
The new 300,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art office and production facility will combine the current West Carrollton, Ohio headquarters, along with a manufacturing plant and a warehouse located in Troy, Ohio.
The new facility will house approximately 250 to 275 employees, with the plan to expand the employee base and facility as the company expands its operations. The 25-acre site allows for the building to be expanded by an additional 200,000 square feet to support this growth.
Construction will take approximately 10 months, with an expected move-in date of June 2011.
