GITAI, founded in 2016 by Sho Nakanose, is a leading provider of space robots in Japan. GITAI is developing space exploration robots to help build and maintain satellites, space stations, lunar bases, and even cities on Mars. The company’s planned expansion to the U.S. marks a notable step in its growth and potentially brings its innovative space robots to a wider market.
Operating in the U.S. from its Los Angeles-based office, GITAI said it will initially focus on the commercial space station support. The company reportedly plans to hire more than 50 new employees in the U.S. in 2023.
“We are thrilled to fully launch our operations in the US and serve our customers in this market,” said Sho Nakanose, GITAI’s CEO. “We are proud to have secured our first purchase order from a major local space company, which is a testament to the quality and value of our products and services. We are confident that our unique approach to Agile development of space robots will be well received by the US space industry.”
