Gecko Robotics develops robots to inspect power plants. Our robots climb into the dirtiest of places so humans don't have to
Gecko Robotics has landed $40 million in financing as it looks to build an additional 40 robots over the next year to meet what the company sees as growing demand for its safety and infrastructure monitoring services.
The Pittsburgh-based robotics company will now have offices in Austin and Houston, and it does not plan to stop there.
“There has been virtually no innovation in industrial services technology for decades,” Founders Fund partner Trae Stephens told TechCrunch in a statement. “Gecko’s robots massively reduce facility shutdown time while gathering critical performance data and preventing potentially fatal accidents. The demand for what they are building is huge.”
