ROAD TRIP! The MiR500 is Planning its Cross-Country Trip

Posted by Mark Howe on November 28, 2018 11:15 AM

Mobile Industrial Robots recently announced that its MiR500 is taking a big road trip in 2019. Like many people who drive across America, we're assuming MiR500 is eager to hit the wide open road and make new friends along the way!

Mobile Industrial Robots is planning for each of its distributors to have the van for two weeks so that the MiR can be driven to company sites for demonstrations. The truck begins its journey in the Northeast in January, so we anticipate having it to share with New York and New Jersey companies early next year.
