Cambridge, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/14/2017 -- According to John Hayes, Pros to Know thought-leader Vice President for Vecna Robotics, "Vecna Robotics is leading AGV development focusing on software and safety systems. Better throughput, productivity, and cost-effective technology are now available to even the smallest manufacturer or distributor who have been ignored for far too long."
Hayes brings decades of experience in the sector and explained that due to the high cost of entry, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) were only found in warehouses, automotive assembly plants, and other operations with large amounts of floor space. With the help of Vecna Robotics, recent advancements have made the machines more appealing to small- and mid-sized manufacturers in a wide variety of industries.
Daniel Theobald, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Vecna commented, "We are delighted to have John Hayes on the Vecna Robotics team. His depth of knowledge and the breadth and quality of his relationships are unmatched. He brings great value to our customers with his practical, no-hype approach to meeting their needs. Providing rapid ROI with Vecna's industry leading robotics and automation technology is central to his strategy. Large manufacturers, shippers, and retailers looking to stay ahead of competitors will benefit from his experience. However, even more so, his focus on meeting the needs of smaller organizations that have typically found advanced technology out of reach will allow him to have a broad impact on a previously under-served market."
