Kawasaki Robotics is Elected to Robotics Business Review’s Top 50 Companies to Watch in 2017
March 21, 2017
The global robotics industry is more competitive than ever, and new companies are emerging constantly. The RBR50 list outlines the companies that you should keep on your business radar. RBR50 members are the visionaries, trend setters, and companies to watch.
RBR50 companies are recognized based on their groundbreaking applications, market influence, and industry potential. The list represents many different levels and facets of the robotics ecosystem.
“For this year's list, our team had the daunting task of evaluating numerous competitive nominations. The RBR50 for 2017 represents the cream of the crop of the world's most innovative, most influential, and most commercially successful robotics companies,” said Eugene Demaitre, RBR senior editor.
This international compilation spans 10 countries and includes companies ranging from brand-new startups to the biggest robotics makers. 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 automation as a whole is headed.
“We expect the RBR50 honorees to continue to lead the industry across growing markets, and we look forward to tracking their progress in 2017,” added Demaitre.
"Kawasaki Robotics is honored to have been selected for the RBR50 list again this year. A key element driving our success and growth as a company has been, and continues to be, our customer focus. We innovate and develop new products and technologies with our customers' needs in mind, helping them to improve production efficiency and product quality through flexible automation. It's what drives us forward," said Yasuo Chihara, President of Kawasaki Robotics (USA), Inc.
New this year, RBR will also release a series of 5 separate lists naming the top 10 companies in the following categories: Industrial/Manufacturing, Supply Chain/Logistics, Infrastructure, Healthcare, and Components Providers.
RBR will release these lists every other month over the course of the year. While some RBR50 winners are sure to make it onto these new lists, expect to also see some lesser-known companies that are greatly impacting their markets.
