-- Located in the Pittsburgh International Airport corridor, Seegrid is growing in the Pittsburgh region. Seegrid was founded in 2003 and is proud to be among the cutting-edge companies that call Pittsburgh home. The company is a spin-off from Carnegie Mellon University and has remained in the Pittsburgh area. The founders knew the company's vision-guided technology could play a major role for ground vehicles and would revolutionize the material handling and supply chain industries. They recognized there was a more advanced and efficient way to move product from point A to point B – robots not operators. Seegrid's technology transforms industrial vehicles into unmanned, automated pallet trucks and tow tractors that operate without the need for wire, laser, tape or magnet. Seegrid robots optimize workflow processes by increasing productivity and reducing costs, creating economic and operational advantages. Seegrid's robots are manufactured exclusively in Pittsburgh and support U.S. manufacturing and warehousing companies, keeping the U.S. at the forefront of innovation and technology.
Recently the Compact Newsletter reported that Pittsburgh-based:
robotics manufacturer Seegrid is hiring and supporting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)

The Pittsburgh Regional Compact is an employer-driven initiative collaboratively sponsored by the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, business
leaders, educators, students, educational institutions and workforce development organizations across the 10-county Pittsburgh region.
