Inc Magazine Highlights Seegrid AGVs Technology

May 18 2014, 6:12am CDT | by

Pittsburgh, PA, May 18, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Seegrid, maker of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), was featured an Inc. magazine article entitled, “Automated Guided Vehicles: Behind the Swift Business of a Heavy Industry.” The author of the feature, Christine Lagorio-Chafkinto reported, “Seegrid is one of the industry's relative newcomers, and is often looked to as a success story with accelerating growth. It launched in 2003 as a spin-out of the mobile robotics lab at Carnegie Mellon University. The business model included selling off-the-shelf robotic vehicles at a low cost whereas lots of other AGV makers offer pricey customization with slick vision technology; its AGVs require no magnetic tape nor lasers and reflectors.” The company has grown to 74 employees, with revenue increasing at a 400 percent annual clip.”

The author also reported it could be expected that an industry requiring both a significant software operation and high setup costs for manufacturing facilities, materials, and transport, would have a prohibitively high barrier to entry. Sarah Carlson, the chair of the AGV group for MHI, says the numbers do not support that, remarking, “The number of member companies in the group has doubled in the past five years. At a recent industry trade show, sources reported seeing multiple new companies displaying brand-new AGVs for sale.”
