In recent months much of the world has experienced what headlines have dubbed a “global supply chain crisis”—one which many experts anticipate lasting for at least a couple more years.
Among the companies in Canada navigating the complexity of modern supply chains is Attabotics. The Calgary-born automated logistics firm leverages robotics technology to future-proof warehouses.
Attabotics replaces the 2D rows and aisles of traditional fulfillment centres with a patented 3D storage structure and robotics shuttles. The company’s proprietary system fully utilizes horizontal and vertical space, reducing warehouse needs by 85%. The system uses artificial intelligence to determine how to efficiently deploy inventory based on consumer demand.
“Successful supply chain management, especially in this era, is key for small and large businesses alike,” notes CEO Scott Gravelle.
Founded in 2015, Attabotics raised an impressive $50 million Series C round of funding. More recently the company won a 2022 BIG Innovation Award in the Technology category.
Inspired by the structure and productivity of ant colonies, Attabotics provides a new toolset for modern commerce. The company currently has seven live installations in North America, counting luxury retailer Nordstrom among its customers.
As supply chains remain squeezed across the globe, the well-funded Attabotics is growing fast. The company’s workforce expanded by 50% in a year, adding 100 employees in 2020 alone.
To bolster their team the company is participating in Tech Talent Canada’s next virtual job fair on Aprils 27th.
