Robotics manufacturer Yaskawa America Inc. announced it will soon break ground to expand its Miamisburg, Ohio, headquarters. The 185,000-square-foot addition will nearly double the size of its current production space. 

The expansion is expected to create 70 jobs to bolster the current workforce of more than 400 employees. The additional manufacturing space will be used to engineer, develop, integrate and build robotic systems to meet growing demand for automation.  

“When we built our current 305,000-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility in 2011, we purchased additional land to support our expectation of continued growth. This expansion is the fulfilment of that vision and is the next step in Yaskawa’s growth plan for the Americas,” said Steve Barhorst, president and COO of Yaskawa Motoman. This addition will increase our capacity to support our continued record-breaking growth and enable us to reduce lead times and continue to deliver high-quality, innovative robotic solutions to our valued customers and partners.” 

Yaskawa Motoman plans to begin the construction process in June, with a projected completion date of June 2024.
