PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh company that makes robotic, high-tech baby care products plans to expand and add 120 jobs downtown.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1m9WzBs ) says the company, 4moms, announced the plans Thursday.

The company makes products like a collapsible baby stroller and a bouncing baby seat that uses robotic movement and motion detectors, among other products.

The company was founded in 2005 and already employs 110 people.

Gov. Tom Corbett helped announce the company’s plans, which include a $200,000 grant proposal from the state Department of Community and Economic Development.

The company expects to invest about $4.7 million in a new 81,000-square-foot space it plans to lease.

Corbett says the company has recruited talent from local colleges and universities “to become one of the most innovative companies in its industry.”
