Michael Marsh, former president of Tecnomatix Electronics Division, is investing in Flexxbotics.

The robotics company notes in a press statement that the investment in the latest oversubscribed round further validates its position as a visionary in the emerging field of robot-driven manufacturing for the smart factory.

Tecnomatix was a provider of Manufacturing Process Management (MPM) solutions that enable the design, simulation, and execution of production processes with real-time control and visibility throughout shop-floor operations. It was acquired by UGS (now Siemens Digital Industries Software).

Flexxbotics shares that Marsh’s extensive background and leadership experience in CAD and manufacturing software solutions along with his expertise in guiding technology companies during high growth, make him an invaluable addition to the company board of directors and investor team. His investment reinforces the company’s commitment to transforming how software is used to drive robotic automation in next-generation machining environments.

“We are honoured to welcome Michael Marsh as both an investor and board member at Flexxbotics,” said Tyler Bouchard, co-founder and CEO of Flexxbotics. “His deep manufacturing industry knowledge and leadership experience will be critical as we continue to advance robot-driven manufacturing and reshape the future of the smart factory.”

Flexxbotics’ technology, FlexxCORE™ reportedly openly connects and coordinates robots with existing automation equipment, IT systems, and people.

This investment from Marsh, along with his ongoing involvement, will empower Flexxbotics to further enhance engineering and development, expand its product offerings, and extend the reach of its innovative solutions, notes the company.

“Flexxbotics’ vision for the future of robotics in manufacturing, especially the role of robots coordinating the machines in the workcell, has the potential to be truly revolutionary,” said Michael Marsh. “FlexxCORE’s ability to enable the robots to make real-time changes to factory machinery programs and performance based on feedback is a game-changer and offers unparalleled potential to redefine the way robots operate in smart factories around the world.”
