There have been “significant” layoffs at Seegrid, a Pittsburgh-based developer of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). Jim Rock, CEO of Seegrid, said about 90 employees were let go. The Robot Report has also seen multiple now-former employees post about the layoffs on LinkedIn. One of them said the layoffs were part of a company restructuring.
“Seegrid reduced its workforce by approximately 90 positions across all departments,” said Rock. “While regrettable, this decision was made in light of the global economic slowdown and to better position Seegrid for long-term growth. The investors, board of directors and executive leadership team continue to have confidence in the company’s vision, team and growth opportunity.”
While it’s unclear how many people work at Seegrid, its LinkedIn company profile said it has between 201-500 employees. At press time, there were 286 people on LinkedIn who list Seegrid as their current employer.
