Vecna Robotics announced an expansion of its partnership with UniCarriers® Americas, part of the Mitsubishi Logisnext family companies – the third largest forklift manufacturer in the world. Through this partnership, UniCarriers will manufacture and promote its best-in-class pallet jacks running Vecna Robotics’ Pivotal™ automation software.
With UniCarriers’ manufacturing capabilities, this alliance reportedly enables Vecna Robotics to satisfy soaring demand for automation solutions amongst its customer base, including the largest retailers, 3PLs and manufacturers in North America. UniCarriers’ Marengo, Ill. operation employs sophisticated manufacturing equipment, a team of more than 350 highly skilled professionals, and a half a million square foot manufacturing facility.
Vecna Robotics is also working with UCA to leverage UniCarriers’ Authorized Dealer network of 125 dealers throughout the Americas. Through this support network, customers can expect rapid response times in the field, further improving the already best-in-class uptime offered by Vecna Robotics autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).
“It is clear that logistics is no longer a cost center for the material handling industry; it is the differentiator,” said Daniel Theobald, founder and CEO of Vecna Robotics. “Our partnership with UniCarriers America allows our customers to quickly expand their use of automation solutions in order to satisfy the customer expectations for faster delivery.”
In addition, UniCarriers will promote Vecna Robotics AMRs to their national accounts. “We are seeing the need to expand our offering to address our customer’s growing needs to automate their operations,” said Brian Markison, senior director, national accounts and AGV sales at Unicarriers America Corporation. “The combination of our pallet jack’s high quality and Vecna’s Pivotal automation software is a great combination for us to offer to help our customer meet automation challenges.”
