Seegrid Corporation announced the appointment of Anthony Horbal as chief executive officer. Horbal most recently served as president, and is a significant investor in Seegrid.

His expertise as an entrepreneurial leader and business manager is vital to achieving Seegrid’s efforts as the robotic material handling industry leader. Strategically, my role as president and co-founder of Seegrid will ensure an integration of the technology, the industry-sector expertise, and our vision, with all members of our outstanding management team.”

The rapid growth of Seegrid and projected future growth are due in large part to the working relationships with the leading suppliers in the materials handling industry.

These robotic industrial trucks best address the concerns of every CEO and CFO: business efficiency and increasing productivity. Seegrid accomplishes this requirement in a way no other material handling system can replicate,” noted Horbal.

Seegrid, founded in 2003, is backed by more than 30 years of innovation and research.
