Agility Robotics to open factory for humanoid robots in Oregon

The creators of the bipedal robot Digit are bringing the world’s first factory for humanoid robots to Salem and say they will soon have the capacity to produce 10,000 robots a year.

Agility Robotics, a Corvallis-based company, announced the opening of RoboFab Monday.

Construction of the 70,000-square-foot facility began last year and is set to open in late 2023. Located at 4698 Truax Drive SE in southeast Salem, the site will be near other industrial hubs like the Amazon Fulfillment Center.

In 2022, Agility Robotics was one of the first recipients of Amazon’s $1 billion Industrial Innovation Fund.
