Robotics Business Review Names Top 50 Companies to Watch in 2016
Vecna Elected to RBR50

CAMBRIDGE, MA, 2/16/16 – Robotics Business Review (RBR) has unveiled its fifth annual RBR50 list, naming Vecna as one of the most noteworthy companies in the global robotics industry for 2016.

With the robotics industry more competitive than ever, new companies are popping up all the time. Of those companies, the RBR50 list outlines those who should be kept on your business radar.

RBR50 companies are recognized based on their innovation, groundbreaking application(s), commercial success and potential, and represent many different levels and facets of the robotics ecosystem.

“We are honored to be recognized for our robots, hard at work in healthcare, manufacturing, warehousing, hospitality and education,” said Deborah Theobald, CEO. “We believe robots can enhance the quality of life for people everywhere. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with our partners in defining the future of robotics in the workplace.”

This international compilation spans 11 countries and in addition to the large conglomerates, 23% of the list is comprised of lesser-known startups. The RBR50 list is dynamic, with robotics companies entering and leaving on an annual basis and thus creating a list that is indicative of where the global robotics industry as a whole is headed. “The World Economic Forum cites 2016 as the launch of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and has tabbed robotics as the lead player in that transformation. Each of the RBR50 for 2016 should be duly proud that the robotics community has selected them to lead this charge,” said Tom Green, RBR Editor in Chief.
