“Automation and robotics are core tools for manufacturing competitiveness,” said Rick Schneider, president, FANUC Robotics America.  “This accomplishment underscores the fact that more companies are using robotic technology to expand their overall operations versus transferring manufacturing overseas.”

“It’s exciting news to hear that we purchased the 100,000th FANUC robot in the Americas,” said Richard S. Schneider, president, Schneider Packaging Equipment Co., Inc. “We are FANUC Robotics largest integrator in the case packing and palletizing segment in North America, having shipped hundreds of robots over the last three years.  2010 marks the 40th anniversary of Schneider Packaging, and this latest recognition helps us further celebrate what has been a successful year,” said Schneider.

“As the economy recovers from the current recession, we’ve consistently maintained our leadership position, and continue our commitment to providing intelligent robots and systems that deliver the highest levels of quality, productivity and value,” added FANUC Robotics’ Schneider.
