Program Showcases Company's Capabilities and Experiences With Users and Suppliers
Schneider Packaging Equipment is one of eleven system integrators to be selected by the industry trade group Robotic Industries Assn. (RIA) for its RIA Certified Robot Integrator program. To become certified, integrators go through on-site auditing, safety training and hands-on testing of key personal, along with several other criteria, according to RIA President Jeff Burnstein. The certification program showcases system integrator’s capabilities, experiences with users and suppliers, and advancements in robotic development. "Additionally, the program allows integrators to benchmark their own processes against best industry practices, allowing them to identify areas in which they can improve," Burnstein said.  "This also helps the industry by strengthening the overall integrator channel." Terry Zarnowski, sales and marketing manager for Schneider, said the certification was earned by its dedicated employees."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," Zarnowski said. "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."
