Build With Robots, an Albuquerque-based robotics company, has completed its Series A Funding Round of $5 million. The company is focused on deploying complete automated disinfection services to schools, airports, arenas and anywhere that needs to focus on keeping people safe from infectious diseases.
The flagship solution from the company is the Breezy One, an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) that disinfects a facility using a “fogger” to clean the air and all surfaces. The company is finding success in use cases such as airports and schools. The company built its solution on top of the Fetch Robotics Freight AMR base unit.
“New Mexico is a great place to create a company,” Matthew Ennis said, Build With Robots Co-Founder & Chief Strategy Officer. “We believe that it takes the support of a community to build a great company, and we have had that support through our customers, investors, partners, employees, as well as the city and state economic development efforts.”
The lead investor for Build With Robots is Abo Empire (Artesia, NM). “Abo Empire is committed to helping New Mexico companies succeed and is excited to lead the investment into Build With Robots. We have been and continue to be impressed with the quality of the team, the customer engagement, the product market fit, and leadership’s commitment to building success in New Mexico,” stated Travis Steele, VP of Business Development for Abo Empire.
“Matthew Ennis and Chris Ziomek [Co-Founders of Build With Robots] from the start were committed to making this a New Mexico story. Build With Robots raised the largest angel-driven round in the history of the New Mexico Angels,” Drew Tulchin said, President New Mexico Angels. “We want to work together so that this record is broken often. Good companies can raise significant money in New Mexico with collective effort.”
“Build With Robots will use this investment to pursue the disinfection markets for education, transportation hubs, arenas, and other large places where people need to be for their work, education, and play,” added Ennis. “We use engineering and science to help people enter places they want to be.”
