July 5, 2021 | By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
MassRobotics has partnered with Procter & Gamble (P&G) to explore technologies in automation and manufacturing-related applications.
The companies will work together to develop ideas to improve productivity, drive increased value for consumers, accelerate agility from more automation, and allow more flexibility in meeting the manufacturing deadlines of customers.
MassRobotics provides entrepreneurs and innovative robotics/automation startups with the workspace and resources they need to develop, prototype, test and commercialize their products and solutions.
The MassRobotics community will help P&G more closely collaborate with existing P&G robotics partners in Massachusetts.
“P&G offers inroads and intelligence to help our startups bring new thinking to automation and AI for manufacturing,” says Fady Saad, co-founder & vice-president of strategic partnerships at MassRobotics. “We believe this mutual exploration of technology can benefit the entire automation category.”
“We’re excited to be a member of this critical ecosystem to collaborate on the direction and offerings of MassRobotics’ residents and partners,” said Jay Joyner, director of robotics and automation, P&G.
“This will help us as we identify breakthrough innovation with robotics and automation technologies more quickly. This accelerates our ability to deploy innovative new technologies to our manufacturing sites.”
