In May 2020, Bright Machines established the Factory Resiliency Fund to get manufacturers back to work after Covid-19 upended the industry. The program committed $50 million to help manufacturers take advantage of no-upfront-cost automation, typically the major deterrent associated with automation-equipment purchasing. The program also allows customers to defer payments until 2021 and for the first three months after a solution passes the factory-site-acceptance test. The fund helps manufacturers weather future disruptions by future-proofing factory floors with flexible and scalable automation.
