Aersys, Inc.

Aersys, Inc. is making next generation automation accessible to everyone. Our flagship product, the AerNode, is a modular robotic MicroFulfillment Center (MFC) that lets companies automate small-parts inventory, offer roadside pickup (BOPIS), leverage automated delivery with drones and rovers, and create grab-and-go experiences for customers.

We’re a team of builders, problem-solvers, tinkerers, and nonconformists. Collectively, we form a scenius that challenges the way things have always been done. We think from first principles, question traditions, understand that failures are just stops on the road to success, and care deeply about creating a future worth looking forward to.
