Robotics spin-out leases Heppenstall building

A new robotics company is ready to spin out of the National Robotics Engineering Center into a significant new space for itself in Lawrenceville.
Carnegie Robotics, whose president and CEO John Bares was the director of NREC, has signed a long-term lease for the 30,000-square-foot blue former Heppenstall building owned by the Regional Industrial Development Corp. of Southwestern Pennsylvania…

“We’re very happy to have Carnegie Robotics in there,” said Smith. “It represents a great win for NREC and Carnegie Mellon University in spinning out companies and it continues to reinforce the continuing robotics cluster of companies in Lawrenceville.”
When asked if this was the biggest lease he’s seen so far for a robotics spin out, Smith said he believed so.
