Icon Robotics signed a long-term lease for a facility in Oregon, Wisconsin – a short 10-minute drive south from the State Capital, Madison. This is a significant milestone marking the ongoing commitment JMP Engineering has to North America and its customers in this region. It also coincides with the significant expansion of the Icon Robotics local support team who are leading most new project installations in the US and Canada, as well as introducing a much broader range of support services that are tailored to the needs of its local customers.
The new facility will become the US headquarters for Icon Robotics. Sales, service, spare parts distribution, warehousing, and robot & system refurbishment are planned for the new facility and the transition will occur in coordination with JMP NZ.
