PITTSBURGH, PA – April 20, 2021 – Premier Automation is now a Channel Partner for Pittsburgh-based autonomous robotic company, IAM Robotics. IAM Robotics offers an automated material handling solution which emphasizes human and robot collaboration.

Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are designed to complete routine tasks—such as picking materials and transporting them from one location to another—without the need of constant supervision. AMR technology enables human employees to be more efficient, while making their work environment safer and more productive.

“We are extremely excited to bring together two strong Pittsburgh-based companies and offer ground-breaking solutions for the industry,” said Mike Gunniers, Owner of Premier Automation. Premier Automation will offer the new IAM Robotics collaborative robot, Bolt™, designed to work with and around people for handling and transporting materials within and between zones inside a traditional warehouse environment.

“This partnership allows us to provide customers with a completely automated solution, which opens the door to future innovative opportunities,” said Ryan Gaudy, Manager of Robotics. As Pittsburgh continues its transformation into a technology hub, specifically with a substantial growth in robotics and autonomy, this partnership creates new opportunities for local and regional manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to surpass their competition and solve the growing demands of today’s digital world.
