Robotics companies Universal Robots (UR) and Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) have opened a new robotics hub in Odense, Denmark, designed to accelerate innovation in advanced robotics technologies. 

The companies, both spin-outs of Teradyne Robotics, said the launch of the new 215,000 square feet headquarters would allow them to work collaboratively to bring novel robotics technologies to commercialization. 


“The launch of this new headquarters marks a significant milestone for Teradyne Robotics as we bring together two leading companies in robotics innovation,” said Ujjwal Kumar, Teradyne Robotics’ group president. “We will now have the optimal environment to evolve our technological capabilities, which are already in high demand."

Jean-Pierre Hathout, MiR’s president, said the hub will enable the companies to “revolutionize automation”, by combining their expertise in collaborative robots and autonomous mobile robots.

"Our new headquarters is designed to foster innovation, providing the perfect setting for our teams to develop leading-edge solutions,” said Hathout. “MiR is committed to being a one-stop-shop for material handling, continuously advancing our technology to meet the evolving needs of our large, global customers.”

UR and MiR's partners include Nvidia and Siemens, which both attended the opening event and have integrated technology with Teradyne’s pipeline of industrial robots. In March, Teradyne and Nvidia announced they planned to partner to bring AI capabilities to industrial robots.
