Yaskawa Motoman Expands Robot Manufacturing Headquarters

Yaskawa America Inc., Motoman Robotics Division (Yaskawa Motoman), announced that it will soon be breaking ground on an expansion to its headquarters in Miamisburg, OH. The 185,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art addition will nearly double the size of the company's current production space, optimizing its operational capacity to meet the growing demand of the automation industry.

With over 400 current employees at this location, the expansion will create 70 new jobs. The additional manufacturing space will be utilized to engineer, develop, integrate and build robotic systems, as well as provide additional space for the retrofit and rebuild of previously deployed systems.

"When we built our current 305,000 sq. ft. headquarters and manufacturing facility in 2011, we purchased additional land to support our expectation of continued growth. This expansion is the fulfilment of that vision and is the next step in Yaskawa's growth plan for the Americas," said Steve Barhorst, President and COO of Yaskawa Motoman. "With labor shortages in the Americas, more companies are turning to automation to meet increased production demands and improve efficiencies. This addition will increase our capacity to support our continued record-breaking growth and enable us to reduce lead times and continue to deliver high quality, innovative robotic solutions to our valued customers and partners."

Grants from the City of Miamisburg, Montgomery County and Jobs Ohio are helping to offset building costs. "We are grateful for these funds that will help us continue to be a catalyst for economic growth in the city of Miamisburg and the greater Dayton region," said Barhorst. "It is important for us to give back to this community that has supported Yaskawa Motoman since our inception."

Michelle Collins, Mayor of Miamisburg, OH, said, "Yaskawa Motoman has been a great addition to Miamisburg's business community for the past 11 years. We are thrilled to see them grow and invest in our great city."

The estimated projected completion date is June 2024.
