Robotics is one of the biggest technological breakthroughs in recent years. From seamless automation, reduced operational costs, and increased production output rates, to improved product consistency, the myriad of benefits that organizations can reap from robotics tech is a game changer for growth and success. In fact, 88% of companies around the globe are looking to invest in robotics. With over 400,000 new robots per year and a projected global market value of $42.2 billion by 2026, robots are bound to dominate industries worldwide.
One of the industries that have greatly benefited from robotic technology is manufacturing. For one, it improves efficiency with decreased manpower to handle logistics. What’s more, the tedious task of meeting the growing consumer demand any time of the day is a void that is filled by robotics without exposing any risks of human error.
The great movement of manufacturing companies switching to a hybrid of workforce and automation skyrocketed during the pandemic as companies struggled to keep up with government restrictions, imposed lockdowns, and health protocols. It was a sink-or-swim era, and for retail and e-commerce stores to survive, changing their models was necessary. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, a palpable shift was seen in the industry as robotics sped up business processes, and leaders reskilled their existing employees and let automation do the heavy lifting.
One company has created a significant buzz in leveraging robotics to accomplish last-mile delivery and deliver at maximum efficiency in the shortest time windows possible. 1MRobotics, an Israel-based startup, is known for developing robotic nano-fulfillment centers and creating next-gen dark stores designed specifically to meet the urgent need for rapid delivery.
Hyperscaling Last Mile Fulfillment
Founded in 2021, 1MRobotics aims to make rapid last-mile fulfillment hyper-scale and profitable. Co-Founders Eyal Yair, CEO, and Roee Tuval, COO, recognized the industry’s urgent need for a total overhaul to meet the increasing demand for rapid delivery and to enable quick expansion and optimal unit economics.

With decades of cumulative experience from companies at various stages, from the early establishment to M&A, the team at 1MRobotics focuses on bringing a holistic, cross-functional revamp in enterprise sales, hardware and software development, robotics, and electro-optics for global businesses.
Hyperlocal Proximity is Key
The team at 1MRobotics reiterates that the key to an efficient and fast delivery is hyperlocal proximity, and can be achieved through cutting-edge automation and robotics. For CPG brands, the company has designed and engineered Genesis, which is built for retail and CPG DTC fulfillment needs. It’s capable of integrating into existing logistical infrastructures, enabling the transition as smooth and seamless as possible with minimal downtime. Their second solution is Flexsis, which is ideal for convenient retail and quick commerce. It maintains all the operational capacity of Genesis with immediate deployment, bulk loading, and full automation that’s specifically designed for the unique needs of on-demand rapid delivery.
Today, 1MRobotics has established itself as a key player in breaking ground and pushing boundaries as the manufacturing industry continues to face a new wave of challenges, including keeping pace with the post-pandemic new normal and navigating the economic downturn. With its potential to optimize business operations with a minimal workforce, organizations worldwide continue to rely on 1MRobotics’ cutting-edge technology and two state-of-the-art solutions to transform retail stores into solid, bulletproof nano-fulfillment centers that are here to stay.
