CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Van Meter Inc., a 100-percent employee-owned electrical and automation distributor and solution provider, is excited to announce new partnerships with three industry-leading robotics supplier partners: Comau, DENSO, and Doosan.
As OEMs and other industrial plants struggle through safety, productivity, and workforce management challenges, a 2022 study from Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute indicates that companies of all sizes are increasingly turning to robotics and automation to stay productive and competitive.
“Our partnerships with these innovative robotics lines allow Van Meter to expand its automation offering so we can help our customers gain efficiency and transform how they work,” said Mike Hermann, Vice President of Industrial Sales at Van Meter Inc. “Robotics have a wide range of applications that allow customers to meet their production goals, redirect workers to more meaningful tasks, and assign dangerous, repetitive, and high-precision plant floor tasks to robots that can handle them safely and consistently.”
According to a Grand View Research study, the industrial robotics segment is expected to exhibit a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 11 percent from 2021 to 2028, with growth attributed to a substantial increase in adoption of robots to carry out automation processes.
This recent expansion aligns with Van Meter’s ongoing mission to help industrial manufacturers improve operational efficiency through smart, flexible manufacturing solutions that increase plant floor safety, boost plant floor productivity, and help workers make impacts in new ways.Tagged with robotics, Van Meter
