Locus Robotics Corp. today announced that it has obtained more than $117 million in Series F funding. The maker of autonomous mobile robots, or AMRs, for fulfillment and distribution centers has added investors to its board of directors as it continues its global expansion. “This new round of funding marks an important inflection point for Locus Robotics as we look toward our next stage of growth, and we strategically chose to bring in investors with a wealth of experience in both public and private markets to advise us as we continue our journey,” stated Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics. “As the rapid digital transformation of the supply chain continues, warehouses increasingly seek flexible, intelligent robotics automation to improve productivity and grow their operations, despite ongoing labor shortages and exploding order volumes,” he added. The LocusBots can help optimize labor and efficiently use warehouse space, said Wilmington, Mass.-based Locus, which also has offices in Amsterdam and Singapore. Retailers, third-party logistics providers (3PLs), and specialty warehouses can use Locus’ robots to meet and exceed increasingly complex and demanding fulfillment requirements, said the company. It claimed that its systems easily integrate into new and existing warehouse infrastrutures without disrupting workflows.
