03/2023: Following a slew of recent Pittsburgh robotics expansion news, French software company Tesseract Solutions laying roots here by expanding to the city and calling its new US branch KMeleon, Inc. The company says its software allows robot suppliers to program industrial robotic arms without “the need to use source code or complicated programming language.”
KMeleon will be taking up residence in Lawrenceville, at the ‘Field Day Co-Working’ space, recognizing the neighborhood’s growing reputation as a robotics hub. Tesseract CEO Florian Dordain cited nearby institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University and the Pittsburgh Robotics Network as making the city the right choice for the company.
“It was an obvious choice, as Pittsburgh is the robotics capital of the world with an extremely strong and supportive robotics ecosystem,” Dordain said in a statement, “Pittsburgh is a place where connecting with people and establishing business relationships is easy.”
Currently KMeleon has nine employees, with plans to have five based in Pittsburgh and a long-term goal of scaling up to 15 local employees.
