“My team thought I was crazy to start with robots. Typically, you bring in robots to gain additional efficiencies. Instead, I wanted to find the right robotics partner and then build around the right robotic technology to have maximum efficiency.”
Overview & Challenge
B2B materials supplier prepares for a fastgrowth future with a fleet of mobile robots
Many companies integrating robotics seek to add them to their current warehouse layout to keep the workflow moving seamlessly. Material Bank, a B2B materials supplier, saw an opportunity to build their entire business model and warehouse around the robotic solution from the very start for even more gains.
There was a specific need to find a technology that can scale as the company grows, with plans to build a facility six times larger than their 74,000ft2 facility within the following 2 years.
Disruption is just the beginning
In just the first 7 months since go-live, Material Bank
grew to over 11,000 users in the design industry,
growing 30% each month with thousands on a waitlist.
Two years since the successful deployment,
Material Bank tripled the amount of robots to 45 with
plans to top 100+ in early 2021. They also quadrupled
the number of SKUs and grew revenues by 300%.
LocusBots initially processed 100,000 units per month
and are now processing 3 times that amount.
Locus initially deployed a multi-bot solution of 10 bots that were fully up-and-running in just 14 weeks, picking up to 8 orders at a time on each robot.
