Erik Nieves, CEO of Plus One Robotics, reflected on the company's journey and future: "When we founded Plus One Robotics in 2016, our vision was to transform warehouse operations through innovative robotic solutions that would relieve people from mundane tasks. Today, with over 1 billion successful picks and industry-wide recognition, we're realizing that vision at scale. This accelerated growth strategy is the next step in our journey. Bringing Avi on board as President and CCO is instrumental in executing this vision. His commercial acumen will be crucial as we expand our market presence, strengthen our growth initiatives and continue to push the boundaries of what's possible in logistics automation. We're not just growing; we're shaping the future of the industry."

Plus One Robotics' strategic shift comes at a critical time for the logistics industry, which faces increasing pressure from e-commerce growth and labor challenges. The company's AI-powered vision software and human-in-the-loop technology have proven to enhance supply chain productivity at scale.
