Rapyuta Robotics, a leading developer of collaborative pick-assist robots (Rapyuta PA-AMR) or warehouse robots, has established its U.S. subsidiary. This is the second overseas office for the company, following the one in India.
Rapyuta Robotics has been providing pick-assist robots to the Japanese logistics industry. The company intends to contribute to the U.S. logistics market by accelerating its sales activities and operations in the U.S., leveraging the experience it has gained in the Japanese market.
On January 25, an opening ceremony was held to celebrate the establishment of the new office. A demonstration of the operation of the order picking robot was given to about 30 participants, including those involved in the logistics business. In celebration of the establishment of the U.S. subsidiary, the company also unveiled a redesign of the interactive character on its Rapyuta PA-AMR.

The Rapyuta PA-AMR’s advanced technology platform (rapyuta.io) paired with their warehouse robots, have been developed in Japan’s distribution centers, where space constraints and high quality of service are the norm. The company is bringing this proven technology and hardware to provide great value to customers in overseas markets as well. The newly established Chicago office will accelerate sales activities and operations throughout the U.S., and Rapyuta Robotics is committed to delivering guaranteed ROI in the United States.
