Eleventh Company to Receive RIA Certified Robot Integrator designation.
Schneider Packaging Equipment, Brewerton, NY, has received the prestigious new Certified Robot Integrator designation from the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), the industry’s trade group.
“We are very happy to welcome Schneider to our growing group of Certified Robot Integrators,” says Jeff Burnstein, President of RIA. “In order to become certified, integrators go through a rigorous process which includes an on-site audit, safety training and hands-on testing of key personnel among other important criteria. Based on feedback from the industry, we believe that achieving certification will be valuable to integrators looking to showcase their capabilities and experience to users and suppliers alike.
“Additionally, the program allows integrators to benchmark their own processes against best industry practices, allowing them to identify areas in which they can improve. This also helps the industry by strengthening the overall integrator channel,” Burnstein explains.
The new RIA Certified Robot Integrator program was officially announced in late January at the Robotics Industry Forum in Orlando. A total of eleven integrators have now received the RIA Certified Robot Integrator designation.
“Schneider Packaging Equipment is very proud of its employees for taking the initiative to earn this certification,” says Terry Zarnowski, sales and marketing manager, Schneider Packaging Equipment. “The RIA Certified Robot Integrator status enables us to demonstrate to our prospective customers that we are dedicated to providing safe and cost effective solutions for their packaging line needs. With literally hundreds of robotic installations commissioned in the field, this RIA certification means that we have the experience, technical know-how, and professional staff that are ready to help you realize your robotic solution requirements.”
