Hey, I'm new here, but I couldn't help but reply to your post. Sorry for bumping the old thread, but I really wanted to share my 2 cents. I think it's awesome that you're interested in starting a business in the industrial robots field. I don't have much knowledge on manufacturing robots, but I do have a friend who might be able to help you out.
He's really good at ria valuations and has experience in this field. I'll send you his contact info through email so you guys can connect. Also, just a heads up, this post seems pretty old so you might not get a lot of responses. But don't let that discourage you! Keep pushing forward and reaching out to people.
