RobotWorx Receives Outstanding Sales Growth Award from FANUC Robotics
RobotWorx Posted 04/27/2011FANUC Robotics America honored robot system integrator, RobotWorx, with an award for 2010 sales at its Integrator Conference held in March. The award is given to integrators who have achieved significant sales goals. During 2010, RobotWorx’ first year as a FANUC Authorized System Integrator, the company sold a total of 16 new FANUC robotic systems.
“RobotWorx was honored to receive the Outstanding Sales award from FANUC after only our first year as an Authorized Integrator,” RobotWorx CEO Keith Wanner said. “Fanuc takes great pride in their integrators. They make sure that each integrator is taken care of and respected. Our FANUC representative, Ryan Patterson, recognized that we would be an asset to the Fanuc family and has been very instrumental in our success.”
New industrial robot sales is a fairly new focus for the Ohio-based robotics integrator. Previously, RobotWorx concentrated its efforts on reconditioning and selling used industrial robots. Now, thanks to its official business partnerships with FANUC Robotics and other manufacturers, RobotWorx is able to offer customers cutting edge robotic solutions.
“[FANUC Robotics’ Outstanding Sales Growth Award] is awarded to an ASI (Authorized Systems Integrator) that increased their bookings by 50% or more from the previous calendar year,” FANUC District Sales Manager Ryan Patterson said. “As you can imagine, it is tough to win this award year after year… So far, two robots have been booked so we are on our way.”
The new status as a FANUC Authorized System Integrator gives RobotWorx ample opportunities to collaborate and learn from other robot integration companies.
“It has been fun getting to know other integrators in the program and I'm amazed at how they all work with each other, sharing leads and ideas,” Wanner said. “We look forward to another great year with Fanuc and continued success for years to come.”
