Seegrid CEO Horbal is Interviewed in Pittsburgh Business Times

Seegrid CEO Horbal is Interviewed in Pittsburgh Business Times

 
PRLog - Aug. 9, 2012 - According to Pittsburgh Business Times reporter Malia Spencer, Anthony Horbal, the new CEO of Seegrid Corp. has one goal — go global.  Spencer reported, the Coraopolis-based robotics firm has been quietly growing since it moved from starter space in Lawrenceville to RIDC Park West in late 2009. The company occupies 41,000 square feet for more than 70 employees, and its head count is growing, said Horbal, previously the company’s president.  “We are ready to go global,” he said. “I have been tasked with the responsibility of that success.”

Since last year, the company has been building out its executive team. Previous CEO and company co-founder Scott Friedman is taking the role of president and, earlier this month, Michael Hasco was named chief growth officer. In April 2011, the company named David Heilman chief administrative officer and Matthew Kramer chief revenue officer.

Now, Horbal thinks the team is in place for rapid growth. “(We’re) optimistic about the future,” he said. “Any (economic) downturn is temporary, and it doesn’t seem to impact automation. Companies worldwide are looking to be more efficient and
take costs out of the product. We are doing demos everywhere.”

Prior to Seegrid, Horbal founded Three Rivers Health Plans Inc., a Pennsylvania Medicaid health plan, which was sold to UnitedHealthcare in 2008. He said his experience rapidly growing that company and his knowledge of business development, team building and motivating a staff have prepared him for this new role.

Pittsburgh-based Seegrid Corp. (www.seegrid.com), is the leading in Robotic Industrial Truck manufacturer worldwide; industrial robots are creating more jobs in warehousing and manufacturing facilities. The company has recognized the economic change in manufacturing.  There is a strong increased demand for driverless industrial robots to transport goods horizontally without wire, tape, laser or other costly automated guided vehicle (AGVs) systems.  These industrial robots are manufactured in America and support American manufacturing and warehousing companies— keeping America at the forefront of innovation and technology.
