About Formic

Founded in 2020, Formic is accelerating the adoption of automation across small to mid-sized U.S. manufacturers and boosting productivity by removing the risk, complexity, upfront capital, and expertise that typically exist as barriers to onboarding this transformative technology. Our “Robotics-as-a-Service” model delivers automation at a low hourly rate with contractually guaranteed performance. Customers only pay for the time the machines are producing for the business.

With fully managed automation that includes everything from designing to deployment, 24/7 monitoring, maintenance, and upgrades, all for 1 low rate - we're creating an innovative and accessible competitive advantage for small and mid-sized factories to enable scale and growth that was once only available to large companies.
