Yaskawa Motoman to Expand Robot-Manufacturing HeadquartersMay 19, 2023
Yaskawa America Inc., Motoman Robotics Division (Yaskawa Motoman), announced plans to expand its headquarters in Miamisburg, OH. The new 185,000-sq.-ft. state-of-the-art addition will nearly double the company’s production space, optimizing operational capacity to meet growing demand for automation equipment. The expansion, also expected to create 70 new jobs, will be used to engineer, develop, integrate and build robotic systems and provide additional space for the retrofit and rebuild of previously deployed systems.
“When we built our current 305,000-sq.ft. headquarters and manufacturing facility in 2011, we purchased additional land to support our expectation of continued growth. This expansion is the fulfilment of that vision and is the next step in Yaskawa’s growth plan for the Americas,” says Steve Barhorst, president and COO of Yaskawa Motoman. “With labor shortages in the Americas, more companies are turning to automation to meet increased production demands and improve efficiencies. This addition will increase our capacity to support our continued record-breaking growth and enable us to reduce lead times and continue to deliver high quality, innovative robotic solutions to our valued customers and partners.”
Yaskawa Motoman plans to begin construction in June 2023, with a projected completion date of June 2024.
