Otta's take

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Assembly lines are valuable workflows for eCommerce businesses, but most of these are still handled by humans. The manufacturing process of most products is repetitive and algorithmic, raising questions as to why humans are still required for the job.

Nimble Robotics provides robotic solutions for automated end-to-end manufacturing, including piece-picking, sorting and packing. The services are aimed towards an eCommerce audience, reducing unnecessary staffing costs and increasing efficiency and workflow. To do this, they use robots which are capable of picking apparel, electronics, accessories, convenience items, groceries, beauty products, shoes, and more with 99.9% accuracy at 700+ UPH.

Nimble's robots are customized for every client to ensure the workflow fits their manufacturing needs. The company's network of warehouses is set to provide brands with 1-2 day services for +96% of the U.S. population, meaning Nimble is well set to see substantial growth.
