RightHand Robotics (RHR), one of Dream Incubator’s (DI) invested companies in the U.S. and a leader in providing autonomous robotic piece-picking solutions, established a new corporate entity in Japan. The subsidiary will enable RHR to better serve the fast-growing demand for robotic piece-picking in Japan and the rest of Asia Pacific.
“As the world’s second-largest retail sector as well as the second-largest industrial robotics market, Japan represents a significant market opportunity for supply chain automation. Expanding into the Japanese market with the establishment of Japan entity is a major accomplishment for our team. Having a presence in Japan will increase our opportunities in Asia Pacific and play a pivotal role in our global growth.” said Leif Jentoft, co-founder of RHR.
Furthermore, RHR’s first deployment in Japan is with PALTAC CORPORATION (PALTAC), Japan’s largest wholesaler of cosmetics, daily necessities and general pharmaceutical products. PALTAC has implemented RHR’s piece-picking solution at its newly established distribution center, RDC Saitama, which commences operation in November.
