York is Poised to Become the Next Robotics Hub
The fourth industrial revolution continues to usher in emerging technology that’s growing at an exponential rate. While the first wave focused on mass production and was powered by steam engines and electric motors, the current movement is characterized by robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and Internet of Things (IoT). These blurred lines between devices, platforms, and communication translate to increased efficiency and better asset management for companies, leading many to embrace the so-called “age of disruption.”
To learn more about what this level of technology integration means for Pennsylvania companies, we spoke to John McElligott of York Exponential LLC, a firm that provides robotic solutions to manufacturers that recently received a Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grant for the construction of a robotics campus in York’s Innovation District. McElligott has spoken about robotics solutions across the U.S. and its territories, including the White House and passionately believes that York, Pa., is uniquely positioned to become the next robotics hub.
