Yaskawa Motoman to add 185,000 square feet to Ohio facility

June 8, 2023
The 185,000-square-foot addition will allow the company to engineer, develop, integrate and build robotic systems.

Yaskawa America Inc., Motoman Robotics Division, will be expanding its facility in Miamisburg, Ohio. The 185,000-square-foot addition will allow the company to engineer, develop, integrate and build robotic systems. The space will also be used to retrofit and rebuild previously deployed systems. The project, which will generate 70 new jobs, is expected to be completed in June 2024. Additionally, grants from the City of Miamisburg, Montgomery County, and Jobs Ohio helped make the expansion possible. 

In a recent quote, Steve Barhorst, President and COO of Yaskawa Motoman, said, “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. With labor shortages in the Americas, more companies are turning to automation to meet increased production demands and improve efficiencies. 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.”
