Robotic Baby Gear Manufacturer 4moms Expands Operation Center And Staff In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
“At the end of the day, building a business is all about people and Pittsburgh offers some of the most talented people anywhere. There’s no better place for us to build 4moms as we look to continue our rapid growth,” said Robert Daley, CEO of 4moms. “We would like to thank the Governor for his leadership in helping businesses like ours thrive in the commonwealth through his JOBS1st PA program. We are proud to call Pittsburgh our home and are excited about deepening our roots in the region."
As part of a state incentive, 4moms received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, including a $200,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant. The company has accepted the funding proposal, but must still apply for the grant and agree to the terms prior to award receipt.
“Pennsylvania is leading a new wave of technological transformation and my administration is proud to create an economic environment that encourages innovation,” said Governor Tom Corbett. “4moms is a tremendous Pittsburgh success story that has recruited local talent from the region’s colleges and universities to become one of the most innovative companies in its industry. My administration is proud to be a partner in helping 4moms flourish in Pittsburgh.”
The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance.
“4moms represents the sweet spot created when key regional strengths converge. The company has melded Pittsburgh’s strengths in robotics and engineering to redefine baby gear and grow into a world-class leader in this industry. The Pittsburgh Regional Alliance congratulates 4moms leadership and entire team on significant achievements that further raise the region’s profile as an innovation hub. We – along with the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County, regional partners in economic development – are pleased that the company is growing where its roots are – expanding into new headquarters in vibrant downtown Pittsburgh,” said Pittsburgh Regional Alliance President Dewitt Peart.
