Graze Inc., which develops automated lawn mowers, announced that it is relocating its U.S. headquarters and research and development center to Plano, according to a news release from the city.

The details

The California-based robotics company is planning to move into its new space in the Legacy Business Park area in April.

“The city of Plano and its surrounding area will provide the perfect base for Graze to develop additional innovative solutions for the landscaping industry and grow our position in the marketplace,” Graze CEO Logan Fahey said in the release. “Graze’s autonomous electric mowers have been used in a pilot landscaping maintenance program at [DFW] Airport, and we look forward to expanding our business as we provide eco-friendly landscaping solutions for customers throughout Texas and beyond.”

Graze is the latest in a string of headquarter relocations to Plano, with the most recent being financial company QuickFee, which relocated in October.

The company is currently preparing to launch its commercial-grade robotic lawn mower, and is planning a demonstration of the product at High Point Park on Jan. 17 at 1 p.m.
