Bright Machines

Bright Machines was founded in 2018 by industry veterans who saw a unique opportunity to pioneer an innovative approach to intelligent, software-defined automation.

It has a growing roster of enterprise OEM and contract manufacturing customers in high-growth end markets, including computing and communications, automotive, sensing and controls, and diversified industrials. With more than 350 employees worldwide, Bright Machines operates R&D centers in the U.S. and Israel, with additional delivery and sales operations in Mexico, Poland, and China.

The Company’s flagship product, the Bright Machines® Microfactory, is a pre-integrated, programmable assembly line that can be easily deployed into both existing and greenfield production facilities. Running on the Company’s proprietary Brightware® software platform, it is a scalable, future-proofed solution that allows manufacturers to create a more resilient supply chain and relocate or rebalance capacity in tandem with market demand.

Bright Machines’ platform approach, coupled with their full-stack microfactory solution, is enabling the world’s largest manufacturers to fundamentally change the flexibility, scalability, and economics of production. With intelligent automation, they can build closer to where they sell and ultimately, transform the way their products are made.
