Prime Robotics Building its U.S. Made Robots in its New Denver Manufacturing Facility
June 23, 2020 – Denver Colorado – Today Prime Robotics announced its new Denver Robot Design and Manufacturing facility is fully operational and all Prime Robotics robots will be developed and assembled onsite. The company’s headquarters is in Denver. Prime Robotics is an innovator in the warehouse robotics industry, with AMR robotic solutions designed for optimizing warehouse workflows to deliver 8-10x higher productivity. Adding robots to critical processes has a dramatic impact in terms of boosting efficiency and lowering operational costs.
Prime Robotics provides specialized warehouse robotics solutions for industries including e-commerce fulfillment facilities, retail warehouses, convenience store distributors, grocery distributors and manufacturing are available today. The company’s facility also includes a fully-operational warehouse environment in which its robots are deployed today for both in-environment robot testing and real-world customer demonstrations.
Prime Robotics’ CEO and Founder Eric Rongley sees having everything under one roof as a big advantage, “Every day we work where we are developing, iterating, assembling, and evaluating our robots in our warehouse complete with shelves stocked with inventory and picking stations – all within our corporate headquarters. It’s inspiring for me as an innovator to watch every stage of the robot-building process every day.”
Denver is a good location geographically for manufacturing robots built for U.S. customers, with its major transportation connections converging here. Prime Robotics is using its proximity to railroad transportation to its advantage. “Robots are obviously big, heavy equipment and shipping costs to deliver eight or ten or dozens of them to a customer site is a huge expense. We’re taking advantage of the fact that our headquarters is just off the rail line that comes into Denver, so we can transport our customer robots by rail directly from this facility,” says Rongley.
About Prime Robotics Products
The MobileShelf robot is core to warehouse automation: it brings a shelf of inventory to a worker at a pick station to fill an order. This allows workers who usually walk the inventory shelves picking items to remain stationary as inventory comes to them. MobilePallet is a powerful addition to a warehouse. First a forklift brings palleted goods from a truck at the dock and loads the pallet onto the MobilePallet, which can then autonomously move the pallet through the warehouse without supervision.
