Rethink Robotics has announced that it has signed deals with seven new distribution partners throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia-Pacific to increase the availability of its smart, collaborative robots and allow manufacturers to automate more. Rethink’s current global network – including select partners in the U.S., U.K., Germany, France, Spain, Italy, China, Korea, Japan, and Australia – is strengthened by these distribution partnerships as part of the company’s ongoing effort to meet growing demand across the globe, bringing adaptable automation to the global manufacturing market.
Manufacturers are increasingly turning to Sawyer as a smart automation solution to address challenges like labor shortages and improve efficiencies across industries like plastics, packaging and co-packing, metal fabrication, electronics and automotive supply chain. The new partners will join Rethink’s existing partners to help meet the growing demands in North America, Europe and Asia. Rethink Robotics offers manufacturers a cobot solution, including Intera software and the Clicksmart gripper technology, which make it easy to train and deploy.
“The growing international demand for our smart, collaborative robots has encouraged us to expand our network of qualified distribution partners in critical geographies across North America, Europe, and Asia,” said Jason Barton, chief revenue officer, Rethink Robotics. “This selective group of distributors will help us continue to provide an extraordinary experience to our customers around the globe at every step of the implementation process, ensuring success from purchase to deployment and beyond.”
