Robotics firm Seegrid Corp. expanding Pittsburgh area presence

Seegrid Corp., a robotics firm working to help automate distribution centers for a wide range of major companies, is consolidating its manufacturing operations into the Pittsburgh area with a new 30,150-square-foot facility in RIDC Park West in Findlay Township.

The new hub will allow the company to move two of its three offices in Massachusetts into one building here.

“It’s kind of a watershed moment,” said CEO Scott Friedman, who described Seegrid’s client base as the uncarpeted side of the Fortune 500. “We’re scaling our operation around our sales.”

The company expects to occupy the new building by Thanksgiving. The facility will include the company’s manufacturing and administrative headquarters as well as sales and marketing. Seegrid was drawn to the location by its proximity to the airport and the access it creates for the company’s growing, national client base.
