Another big robot acquisition: Amazon buys Kiva Systems

March 19, 2012

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) will acquire privately-held Kiva Systems for approximately $775 million!
Kiva’s novel warehousing system uses robots to bring the shelves to the picker and packer instead of vice versa.
The acquisition is expected to close next quarter.
