Ending the uncertainty that has resulted from the withdrawal of Radio Shack from the Vex Robotics market, Innovation First, Inc. (IFI and VexLabs) has announced the acquisition of the Vex Robotics Development System brand name and trademarks from Radio Shack.

"Gaining ownership of the Vex Robotics brand positions Innovation First to take the product platform to the next level," said Tony Norman, president and CEO of Innovation First. "We plan to stock the full line of Vex products and accessories and will seek additional distribution partners to fully serve the consumer and education markets in the US and abroad. We’ll also be stepping up efforts to drive innovation into the product assortment and will offer even more unique parts through the www.vexlabs.com website."

This is certainly good news to all the FIRST Vex Challenge teams, as well as those who will now have a chance have the FVC experience!
