Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Dexterity emerged from stealth at an opportune, albeit tough, time in 2020, just as an accelerating labour crunch drove major demand for automated solutions in factories and warehouses. The company managed a major fundraise and immediately moved on to bigger and better things: expanding into the Japanese market, partnering with supply chain automation leader Dematic and achieving unicorn status with a greater than $1 billion valuation.

Unlike other companies which are fixated on developing increasingly sophisticated, more human-like robots, Dexterity’s takes a comparatively simple hardware approach. Its machines take care of highly repetitive tasks, while its SaaS platform shares everything it learns with each robot, amplifying intelligence across the fleet. Rather than seeking to replace human workforces it aims to augment them, freeing skilled workers for more complex tasks.

Considering that the worldwide labour shortage is heavily impacting the industrial sector, Dexterity is in a promising position to continue its upward trajectory over the next few years.. Indeed its recent partnerships with Sumitomo to supply 1,500 Dexterity robots in their warehouses and with FedEx for autonomous trailer loading are encouraging signs of things to come for the company.
