ANDOVER, MA – Alert Innovation, a leader in grocery automation and micro fulfillment systems, is moving to a much larger space to accommodate the rapid expansion of its business. The new headquarters, located at 165 Dascomb Rd, in Andover, MA, includes about 70,000 sq. ft. of office space and 30,000 sq. ft. of lab space. Approximately 75% of the company’s 450 associates will be based in the new location.
“Our offices in North Billerica served us very well as we launched the company and started to deploy our suite of automated fulfillment solutions. Now that we’re in a phase of rapid deployment and team growth, we need more room for our engineers and operations team to efficiently take us to the next level,” said John Lert, Founder and Executive Chairman, Alert Innovation.
