The move builds on a Stateside deployment in Walmart stores. “The UK is a natural extension for our retail service solutions, and we expect rapid expansion under the leadership of Red McKay,” says Martin Hitch, Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer at Bossa Nova. “Red’s experience of working for retailers and their suppliers will ensure a successful launch of our services in the UK.”
The venture chose Sheffield for its universities’ excellence in robotics and access to world-class talent. It is also looking to advance its partnerships with the UK robotics industry.
