Trends in Robotics include:

Innovo specializes in precision engineering and the development of custom electronic systems and devices. The Innovo team has worked on an array of projects from design to manufacturing including as example:
The Innovo labs which are used to create and manufacture all client projects will soon be open to the public, accessing their tools and machines.

CME is a technology consulting firm that started in Lebanon in 2003 working with US customers. The company team includes software hardware and IT consulting and manufacturing. CME headoffices are based in Beirut with offices in US, Argetina, India and China. CME employs 300 engineers half of which are Lebanese. It means we have the capabilities to compete at an international level
