Prioria Robotics is an engineering company founded by University of Florida alumni and is located in Gainesville. Prioria is a world leader in development of unmanned aircraft systems. The engineering company is dedicated to solving some of the key problems of machine perception and autonomous systems in order to improve and develop new products. Prioria also provides engineering solutions for industrial and ground robotics, medical device manufacturers, military and homeland security applications and cutting-edge commercial products.
When Prioria needed qualified employees to fill positions required to win a multi-million dollar international contract, but didn’t the time or resources to recruit, FloridaWorks stepped in. FloridaWorks is the regional workforce board for Alachua and Bradford counties and a member of the Employ Florida network. Utilizing the Employ Florida Marketplace to find qualified employees, FloridaWorks provided this cutting edge, start-up company with talent. With the help of business expansion resources and new employees provided by FloridaWorks, Prioria was able to win the international contract.
“The Employ Florida Marketplace and FloridaWorks helped us fill nine newly created jobs and win an international military contract,” states Bryan da Frota, CEO and Co-founder.
