“BACA Systems was a clear choice for our first OEM Partner of the Year award,” said Joe Gemma, chief regional officer at KUKA Robotics. “We are honored to have been a key supplier to their solutions for the stone industry for the past 30 years, and we look forward to our continued partnership. With our KR Quantec foundry robots, BACA Systems have created their own innovative automation solutions that are revolutionizing the stone cutting industry.”
