Vecna Robotics is home to our fleet of autonomous vehicles and BEAR (Battlefield Extraction Assist Robot) – one of Time Magazine’s Best Innovations of 2006.
Behind the Scenes at Vecna Robotics
Vecna Robotics, the autonomous mobile robot and workflow orchestration company, recently welcomed VentureFizz, a careers resource and digital magazine for the tech industry, to capture a behind-the-scenes tour of our headquarters in Waltham, MA. Originally located in Cambridge MA, Vecna Robotics moved to Waltham in 2018 when it spun out from its parent company, Vecna Technologies. The company’s rapid expansion called for an upgraded home. The new, state-of-the-art headquarters are designed to accommodate and adapt to the needs of the company. The new location consolidates all engineering, testing, manufacturing and business functions under one roof.
Space to Innovate
Facilities within the 80,000 sq ft headquarters include a fully equipped machine shop, model shop, and electronics lab. The location also houses a demo space for virtual and onsite customer product demonstrations. In addition, large meeting spaces throughout the office are effective for hosting all-staff and industry events.
Comfort and Culture
The team at Vecna Robotics challenges themselves day in and day out to produce the highest quality products that revolutionize material handling equipment and improve workflows at warehouses and distribution centers. To strike a balance, the team also enjoys kicking back. Throughout the headquarters tour, VentureFizz captured both where the team works hard and plays hard. Our team enjoys engaging in the company culture by spending time together playing ping pong, foosball, and air hockey. Employees appreciate the availability of two kitchens which include cold brew coffee on tap, an array of teas, and advanced coffee machines with a variety of flavors. In addition, cozy nooks with hammocks and couches are also available for working sessions, hang outs, and taking a break. The headquarters tour of Vecna Robotics revealed the diverse spaces that ensures our team is comfortable, efficient, and empowered to develop the best solutions for our customers.
