FRAMINGHAM, MA, 2/16/15Robotics Business Review (RBR) has unveiled its fourth annual RBR50 list, naming Vecna as one of the most noteworthy companies in the global robotics industry for 2015.

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 putting robots to work in healthcare, manufacturing, warehousing, and hospitality,” says Daniel Theobald, CTO and Co-Founder of Vecna. “We are looking 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, 20% 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. “2015: Year of the Inflection Point in robotics. What a great time to be counted among the global best in the fastest rising industry in the world. Once again, the robotics community has done a stellar job in selecting those few to represent all,” says Tom Green, RBR Editor in Chief.
