We realize that were only at the beginning of the Bowery journey and we couldnt have asked for a better group of investors to help us grow in this next stage.

New funding to grow food for a better future

Contributed by | Bowery Farming

We started Bowery to grow food for a better future by revolutionizing agriculture. In a little over two years, we’ve assembled an incredible team of experts passionate about the problem we’re solving, developed BoweryOS — our proprietary software platform — from the ground up, and built a fully-operational farm eight miles outside of New York City that supplies restaurants and grocery stores throughout the region.

While we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished so far, we have so much more we want to do, which is why we’re thrilled to announce that Bowery has raised $20M in new funding co-led by General Catalyst and GGV Capital, with participation from GV (formerly Google Ventures) and a number of our seed round investors, including First Round CapitalHans Tung from GGV and Spencer Lazar from General Catalyst will be joining Rob Hayes from First Round Capital on our Board of Directors, and we’re incredibly fortunate to draw on their expertise in scaling global consumer-facing companies. We’re also lucky to work with Andy Wheeler from GV, whose investments include other food and agriculture-focused companies like Impossible Foods and Farmers Business Network.

This additional funding will help us expand our operations, continue to invest in our technology, and bring on world-class talent. We’re currently expanding to more Whole Foods Markets, and we’ve already starting to work on our next farm in the Tri-state area to distribute our produce more broadly. It’s a fantastic time to join our team! We’re always looking for amazing people, and actively hiring across the organization from engineering to agricultural science and business operations.

We realize that we’re only at the beginning of the Bowery journey and we couldn’t have asked for a better group of investors to help us grow in this next stage. To our customers, our supporters, and our investors, thank you so much for your support thus far — we’re excited for what’s ahead.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
