The Ants are different, even compelling, but can they drive a genuine integrated automation proposition for an industry that really needs one?

2019 was a high-octane year for AntWorks - and it laid critical groundwork for 2020. The firm generated a lot of goodwill with its “hip to be square” culture and extravert use of marketing, the color orange, and various ant analogies.
