The company said it delivers competitive advantage to customers including Global 100 retailers and logistics service providers.

The new Robotics Innovation Center and headquarters are at 140 South Road, Bedford, Mass. 01730, joining existing offices in Lexington, Mass., and Pittsburgh, as well as Berkshire Grey's Europe, the Middle East, and Africa headquarters in Reading, U.K. In addition, the company has subsidiaries in Canada and Japan, where it is building a third-party logistics service (3PL) facility with SoftBank Robotics Corp.

“The new center complements other design and test facilities in the region and provides a focal point for customers, investors, and technical activities,” said Berkshire Grey.

In February, Berkshire Grey entered into a definitive agreement with Revolution Acceleration Acquisition Corp. (RAAC), a special-purpose acquisition company (SPAC). The merger is expected to result in Berkshire Grey becoming a publicly listed company early in the third quarter of this year, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including approval by the stockholders of RAAC.
