Rethink Robotics CEO Scott Eckert confirmed the news via email to The Robot Report.
“I can confirm that unfortunately the news is true, Rethink Robotics closed its doors today,” Eckert writes. “We were pioneers and innovators in the industry and responsible for the creation of the collaborative robot category, but unfortunately we didn’t quite achieve the market success we had intended. We have been helping our team find new homes and have been overwhelmed with interest. It’s a world-class group of people will continue to do great things in their next endeavors.”
Rethink sought to market to a host of advanced manufacturers, including in the medical device space.
