The Story Behind Our Story
From left, Chris, Jerome and Rylan. June 2017
In 2011 Rylan Hamilton and Jerome Dubois met at Kiva Systems. Fast forward to 2015, Rylan is running Solutions at Amazon Robotics and Jerome is running strategic initiatives within Amazon's Seller Services organization. During this time Chris Cacioppo was building interactive hardware and software solutions.
The team knew the benefits mobile robotics could bring to fulfillment but were also aware of the limitations of existing offerings. With e-commerce growth accelerating, technology advancing and customers demanding better service, the team saw the conditions for the “perfect storm.” So they decided to jump in.
Rylan, Jerome and Chris wanted a company name that referenced Boston and had a water theme, since distribution centers are all about inventory flow. Because the Charles River has 6 tributaries and our company improves the 6 aspects of order fulfillment, the name became 6 River Systems!
