November 13, 2018 - Universal Robots (UR) is hiring 20+ Rethink staff members, merging UR’s Boston office with Rethink’s former headquarters in the Seaport area in Boston, USA, with immediate effect. These personnel bring collaborative robotics experience in engineering, product development, and customer applications, which will combine with UR’s expertise to continue to drive new collaborative robotics solutions.

Universal Robots’ growth means continually adapting the company structure and processes to deliver its targets for 2019 and beyond.

Universal Robots offers a roadmap for customers of Rethink’s Baxter and Sawyer models, and is ready to help those customers transition to UR cobots.
