Agility Robotics, a New RIDC Tenant, Raises $150 Million in Capital

Agility Robotics, a firm specializing in robotic legged mobility, and a new tenant in RIDC’s Chocolate Factory building in Lawrenceville, announced on Friday that it raised $150 million in capital investment.

“Agility Robotics will be in good company at the Chocolate Factory—joining the many robotics, AI and tech firms operating along Robotics Row,” said Donald F. Smith, Jr., RIDC President. “RIDC played a significant role in building Pittsburgh’s tech cluster through patient, early investments and through the redevelopment of abandoned, obsolete industrial sites in Lawrenceville. We supported the creation of National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC) and Carnegie Robotics, and we’re home to Caterpillar’s Pittsburgh Automation Center and Locomation. Supporting companies like Agility Robotics is just one of the ways we’re continuing our commitment to keeping the region at the forefront of global autonomy innovation.”

Agility Robotics will use its new Pittsburgh space for robotics R&D and testing.
