BUSINESS IN VANCOUVER

With a line of janitorial robots already commercialized and scrubbing floors three years ago, A&K Robotics Inc. had turned its intention to developing a disinfecting prototype robot.

“The problem was back in 2017, nobody wanted to pay for a robot that would clean what’s invisible to us,” recalled Matt Anderson, CEO and co-founder of the Vancouver-based robotics firm. “So we shelved it, and it’s basically been collecting dust ever since.”
