MassRobotics recently announced that it has launched a new partnership with Procter & Gamble (P&G) to collaboratively explore technologies around automation and manufacturing-related applications.
MassRobotics’ mission is to help create and scale the next generation of successful robotics and connected device companies. They do this by providing entrepreneurs and innovative robotics/automation startups with the workspace and resources they need to develop, prototype, test, and commercialize their products and solutions.
The goal of this new partnership between MassRobotics and P&G is 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. In addition to exploring and accessing innovations from resident startups, MassRobotics’ overall community will help P&G remain on the cutting-edge of the robotics and automation industry and collaborate more closely with existing P&G robotics partners in Massachusetts.
“It’s always thrilling to see MassRobotics’ partners and residents work together to explore the edge of the robotics innovation,” said Fady Saad, the cofounder & vice president of strategic partnerships for MassRobotics. “P&G offers inroads and intelligence to help our startups bring new thinking to automation and AI for manufacturing. 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, the director of robotics and automation for 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.”
MassRobotics is the result of the collective work of a global group of engineers, rocket scientists, and entrepreneurs with a shared vision to create a strong, vibrant robotics and IoT ecosystem.
