INTELLIBOT ROBOTICS MOVES HEADQUARTERS TO PORTLAND, ORE.

Wins Significant Industry Award

Portland, Ore., – Intellibot Robotics LLC (“Intellibot”), an award-winning manufacturer of robotic commercial floor cleaners, has moved its headquarters to Portland, Ore. Previously based in Richmond, Va., Intellibot will maintain its manufacturing and engineering operations in Virginia.

The company was also recognized at this year’s RoboBusiness Leadership Summit (Nov. 2-3 in Boston) with the receipt of a ROBIE Award. Intellibot’s HydroBot was named as one of the most noteworthy robotic products of 2011. Award entries were judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media who were selected to honor outstanding design and engineering in the robotics industry.
