Ann Arbor, November 19, 2018: With the booming economy and low unemployment, manufacturers of all sizes are struggling to fill repetitive and undesirable manufacturing work. With the help of the Section 179 tax deduction, US businesses may be able to significantly stretch their use-it-or-lose-it 2018 budgets and invest in collaborative robots to take on the repeated manufacturing plans that workers don't want. Section 179 requires that qualified equipment and off-the-shelf software is purchased and placed into service by December 31, 2018, but with its unique quick-ship program , Universal Robots (UR) can make that happen. The company is announcing that qualified orders received and processed by December 16, 2018 will be delivered by the end of the year.


"Manufacturers are battling to fill jobs so they can meet their production demands, and many can't turn to traditional automation, which is too expensive and complex, especially for small and mid-sized businesses," says Stuart Shepherd, Regional Sales Director of Universal Robots Americas division. "UR co-bots are cost-effective and easy to implement, and with the Section 179 tax deduction they can be even more excellent. Businesses should consult their tax expert right away to see if they can take advantage of this opportunity, and we'll do our part to help them meet eligibility requirements."


The National Association of Manufacturers reports a record-breaking 506,000 open jobs in July 2018, and a study from the Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte projects that 2 million jobs within the industry will go unfilled by the year 2025. To address this gap, manufacturers of all sizes are implementing automation tools such as cost-effective, flexible, safe and easy-to-use collaborative robots (co-bots). At the same time, many companies have use-it-or-lose-it equipment budgets. The Section 179 tax deduction is an easy way to pull those year-end budgets to meet automation goals. Section 179-qualified financing and leasing agreements can help businesses save even more (consult your tax expert for details).
