Cross Company received a lead from Universal Robots around June of 2014. Scott Fetzer Electrical Group was investigating robot based solutions to improve their manufacturing processes and lower production costs. One of their goals was to develop a deployable robot fleet for their workforce in order to put their automation resources where it was needed as demand changed. One of their other goals was to standardize on a single technology that was quick to deploy and had a small learning curve. This would allow their internal tech team to be self-sufficient throughout their deployment.
