Universal Robots Year-End Tax Credits

You may be eligible for a significant tax deduction from the Federal Government for the purchase of a cobot. 

Section 179 of the Internal Revenue Code allows US businesses to take a significant tax deduction for qualified equipment that is put into service by December 31, 2019. That includes collaborative robots (cobots).

But you have to act quickly... 

Universal Robots guarantees year-end delivery for cobot orders received and processed by mid-December. You can buy, finance or lease a UR collaborative robot and save a substantial amount of money! 

If you want to take advantage of the tax credit, talk to your tax professional and contact FPE Automation ASAP for a quote!
