Israeli robotics company plans to locate in Hall Co.

By Ken Stanford Reporter
WASHINGTON - InnoBots Tuesday selected Hall County as the location of its world headquarters.

"We are thrilled to call Georgia our home," said Carmi Peleg, innoBots, chief executive officer. "Our team worked very hard to make today a reality and excited to produce our unmanned systems on American soil to help fight the war on terror. We chose Georgia for many reasons, primarily the support we received from the Georgia Department of Economic Development, along with access to world class academic institutions, and technical and skilled labor force."

InnoBots builds unmanned robotics for use in military and law enforcement applications.

"InnoBots is about saving lives," Peleg added. "We want to bring our soldiers back home to their families. Each one of us on the innoBots team is committed to doing just that."

The company projects that given current market conditions it is on track to hire at least 50 employees for the Hall County operation over the next two years.

The company also has offices in Israel and China.
