25 years ago, our founder David Duemler had a vision to supply modular, flexible, and reconfigurable automation to revolutionize the automation industry, and that hasn’t changed. In the ever-changing world of technology and business, it has been our goal to develop the best automated manufacturing solutions for our partners.
Over the past quarter-century, we’ve grown from upgrading control systems to developing an entire portfolio of patented technology and equipment platforms to make it easier to automate and adapt your applications. Today, we are developing processes that have never been automated before using new technologies, innovative design techniques, and our extensive machine design experience.
