Yaskawa America Inc., Dayton, Ohio, has announced that its Motoman Robotics division, a manufacturer of robots and robotic automation systems, has executed an option agreement to secure property in Dayton for its new, 300,000-sq.-ft. office and production facility.
The facility, which will serve as Motoman Robotics' new North American headquarters, will combine the current West Carrollton, Ohio, headquarters with a manufacturing plant and a warehouse located in Troy, Ohio. It will house 250 to 275 employees, with the plan to expand the employee base and facility as the company expands its operations. The facility plan allows for the building to be expanded by an additional 200,000 sq. ft. to support the company's growth.
The new facility will be located about five miles south of the current West Carrollton headquarters. Construction is expected to be complete in June 2011.
