Fast Company magazine names ReconRobotics one of 50 most innovative companies


Edina-based ReconRobotics announced today that it has been recognised as one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies by Fast Company magazine. Inventor of the tactical micro-robot and a major supplier of robotic technologies to military units and law enforcement agencies worldwide, ReconRobotics was ranked 44 on the list of honourees, which also included Nike (ranked number one), Amazon, Samsung, Kenya’s Safaricom, D-Rev, Google and China’s Landwasher.

“This is a great honour for our young company and each one of our 58 employees,” said Alan Bignall, President and CEO of ReconRobotics. “Our world-class design and engineering teams develop ultra-lightweight robots that save lives, and I am ecstatic that their creativity and problem-solving have been recognised by Fast Company.”

The Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s most significant, high-profile editorial effort of the year, recognising “enterprises that exemplify the best in business from across the economy and around the world”. The 2013 list appears in the March issue, which is on newsstands beginning 19 February, and is available online at
