|“||Due to the massive success, and, even more so, the unfortunate closing of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, it was clear that the stage was set (no pun intended) for another contender in children's entertainment. Unlike most entertainment venues, our robotic entertainers are rented out for private parties during the day, and it's your job to get the robots back in proper working order before the following morning.||„|
|~ HandUnit about Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental, one of Afton Robotic's locations.|
Afton Robotics, Limited Liability Corporation, known as simply Afton Robotics, is the secondary antagonistic faction of the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise. It is the main antagonistic faction of Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location and a posthumous antagonistic faction in Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator and Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted.
It is a robotics company which was founded by William Afton and are the creators of the Funtime Animatronics. They are also the owners of Circus Baby's Pizza World, Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental, and possibly Chica's Party World.
Afton Robotics. Limited Liability Corporation is a robotics company founded by William Afton. They are the ones responsible for the creation of the Funtime Animatronics. William Afton is implied to only have built the animatronics for kidnapping and killing children. It's proven with the blueprints, as they show strange features like Funtime Freddy having a storage tank to keep the children inside) and Funtime Foxy having parental voice recording to lure the children.
The first location the company owned and operated in was Circus Baby's Pizza World. However, it didn't last very long, as William's daughter, Elizabeth Afton, got kidnapped and killed by Circus Baby. The company had to cancel the grand opening of the pizzeria, claiming it was because of gas leaks in the building. Afton Robotics then became a rental company that lets customers rent out animatronics for birthday parties, thus Circus Baby's Entertainment and Rental was built to work as a maintenance facility for the animatronics.
When Michael Afton was there during the events of Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, the robots led by Baby (Elizabeth) wanted to escape from the underground facility, So they manipulated Michael into getting scooped in the Scooping Room, thus making Michael escape with Ennard (every Funtime animatronic) inside of him. Two employees who worked as technicians also died during these events. Both of them got hanged in separate rooms by the animatronics. It is unknown what later happened with the corporation, but it's likely that it got shut down due to not having any animatronics left and their owner dying.

The company seems to be still active, and is probably the one running the underground facility Stanley works at. The new boss is described as being a little, bald man with cold hands and he was never seen by Stanley outside the job interview.

It is possible that Afton Robotics, LLC was the producer of the special glasses that allowed to see a hologram of Ballora. Their main restaurant, Circus Baby's Pizza World, is also mentioned at the beginning of the story.
- Afton Robotics has been often compared by fans with Anderson Robotics from the SCP mythos, mostly due to both companies having the initials A.R. and producing malevolent robots.
