Record growth for Seegrid


Record results for Seegrid in 2017 indicate the interest in connected self-driving material handlers is growing. The company saw both revenue and profit over the 12 months improve on the milestone figures set in 2016.

“Manufacturing and e-commerce companies are under pressure to modernize their operations and transform their facilities into the smart factories of the future,” said Jim Rock, CEO of Seegrid. “Our customers expect a partner who can not only deliver a quality product, but help shepherd the transition into a more automated, data-driven environment.”

Last year marked a year of continued growth and innovation for Seegrid as the company expanded its product suite with the GP8 Series 6 self-driving pallet truck, which offers fully automated material movement from pick-up to drop-off. Operating entirely infrastructure-free, the GP8 Series 6 provides an end-to-end automation solution aligned with Industry 4.0 and lean initiatives.

The company closed out 2017 hitting a major milestone of 800,000 production miles (1.3 million kilometers) by self-driving vehicles in customer facilities – without a single safety incident. In 2018, the company will hit 1 million miles (1.6 million kilometers) driven autonomously by its vision-guided vehicles and is committed to fulfilling its promise of zero safety incidents.
