Greenfield Robotics is pleased to announce that Nebraska businessman Chris Brester has made an investment in the company.
Chris is the owner of Brester Construction, a leading construction company in Nebraska. Named one of the three Best Places to Work in Lincoln Nebraska, Brester Construction has been a fixture of the community and local business since its founding over 35 years ago.
“It’s terrific that the team at Greenfield Robotics has decided to found a leading technology company here in the Midwest,” says Brester. “As a business owner I’ve always felt that the Midwest is overlooked as a location for entrepreneurs and startups. Farmers are the original American small business owner, and the Midwest is the epicenter of that. Greenfield’s headquarters near Wichita gives them access to a great talent pool from aerospace as well as the startup community.”
“We launched Greenfield Robotics as an impact-driven business, and when you talk about social impact, I can’t think of a better example than Chris and his company, Brester Construction,” says Clint Brauer, Co-Founder/CEO of Greenfield Robotics. “Brester Construction has a program that pays its employees to volunteer. After the heavy rains and flooding this past spring, Chris and his employees pulled together to rebuild a local cafe that had been destroyed in the flooding.
“Chris has a unique way of managing effectively with a big heart. I was excited by his investment in large because I respect how he manages to grow a difficult business, but also puts his employees and sense of morality, first.
"We are solving some big problems in climate change and chemicals in our food,” continues Brauer. “But if we don’t treat our customers, partners and employees in the right way, then we have achieved very little. I look to Chris as a guide on how to achieve business success without sacrificing morals and relationships.”
