IBM is launching a new robotics company focused on manufacturing robots and automation that aims to create jobs.
The move comes after IBM and the automotive giant BMW announced they were partnering to build a manufacturing robot and automation startup.
The deal, worth $10 billion, will create a manufacturing technology and supply chain platform for industrial robots that can be used in manufacturing.
The two companies are building a manufacturing robotics platform that will help create jobs in the U.S.
The new company will have offices in Detroit and Columbus, Ohio.
It will be based in the United States and will have a global presence, according to IBM’s press release.
It has been named the Manufacturing Innovation Center for the Automotive Industry, and it is expected to be up and running in 2019, according the press release IBM said.
The announcement comes just days after IBM announced it would launch a robotics research lab in Pittsburgh, which is the center of a robotics factory in that city.
The company announced the $10.5 billion deal to build and manage its robotics research and development facility in Pittsburgh last month.
