The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) has reached 500 members, growing by 25% over the last two years. North America’s only trade association focused on robotics ended July, 2018 with a total of 507 members.
Companies throughout the robotics industry ecosystem turn to RIA for education, networking, and information. RIA’s membership growth mirrors the growth in the robotics market as a whole. As robotics expand within the industrial environment and increasingly outside of it, new start-ups and established companies are launching innovative robotic technologies at a rate previously not seen.
-Our increasing membership is proof of the healthy robotics and automation industry, and we’re proud that we’ve built a world-class association that can cater to our growing membership,- said Jeff Burnstein, president of RIA. -We look forward to continued growth and innovation in the robotics industry, and welcoming new members into our association.-
Stocked Robotics, a start-up service robotics company based in Austin, Texas became RIA’s 500th member. Stocked Robotics transforms traditional fleets of manual industrial trucks into swarms of self-driving vehicles. -We were impressed with RIA’s focus on driving innovation and growth in the robotics industry,- said Saurav Agarwal, Co-Founder & CEO at Stocked Robotics. -As a start-up, we’re looking to partner with companies in the robotics eco-system that can further advance our mission and the industry as a whole. RIA meets all of those requirements.-
