KUKA Robotics Corp. (Clinton Township, Mich.), a manufacturer of industrial robots, signed a lease with the Scott Technology Transfer & Incubator Center in Omaha, Nebraska and announced plans to open a new technical facility there. The facility will serve as a new showroom testing and validation center for robotic concepts. Scheduled for a fall opening, the new center reportedly demonstrates KUKA Robotics’ commitment to develop new robotic technologies in the United States.
"The Scott Technology Center is an excellent fit for KUKA Robotics as both share the vision of excellence in the creation and development of tools for emerging technologies," said Kevin Kozuszek, director of marketing for KUKA Robotics.
The Scott Technology Center is an outgrowth of The Peter Kiewit Institute and provides facilities and infrastructure for large and small organizations directly partnered with the organization. The complex currently totals 220,000 sq. ft. of engineering- and technology-related facilities.
KUKA Robotics Corp., with its parent company KUKA Roboter GmbH, Augsburg, Germany, is one of the world's leading manufacturers of industrial robots, with an annual production volume approaching 10,000 units, and an installed base of over 60,000 units.
