RightHand Robotics, Boston, established a new corporate entity in Japan.

The subsidiary, RightHand Robotics GK, will enable RightHand to better serve demand for robotic piece-picking in Japan and the rest of Asia Pacific.

Kensaburo Tamura was named regional head of Asia Pacific for RightHand Robotics GK.

“Expanding into the Japanese market with the establishment of RightHand Robotics GK is a major accomplishment for our team,” says Leif Jentoft, co-founder. “Japan is a huge and expanding market for robotic piece-picking, and having a presence there, under Tamura’s leadership, will increase our opportunities in Asia Pacific and play a pivotal role in our global growth.”
