Guided vehicle maker broadens US presence

Issue: June 2018

Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR), Odense, Denmark, has opened its second U.S. office. The company has added an office in San Diego to serve the western half of the U.S. and Central and South America; it also has an office in Holbrook, N.Y.

According to the company, worldwide sales of its autonomous mobile robots, also known as AMRs, grew by 300 percent from 2016 to 2017. The company’s flagship robot, the MiR100, and its more powerful sibling, the MiR200, have been installed in more than 40 countries.

The U.S. is the largest market for the technologies, and MiR plans to more than double its workforce here, with plans to hire at least six new sales and technical support staff members for the San Diego office.
