Motion Controls Robotics’ Scott Lang and Tim Ellenberger Honored with Prestigious FANUC President’s Circle of Achievement Award at the 2020 FANUC ASI Conference
Motion Controls Robotics attended FANUC’s 2020 ASI (Authorized Service Integrators) Conference held in Orlando, Florida. The ASI Conference brings together hundreds of individuals involved in FANUC’s certified servicing integrators’ program to discuss, as a large team, the robot industry. The theme of this year’s conference was LEVERAGE.

Scott Lang, President and Tim Ellenberger, Vice-President attended the conference and were presented the FANUC President’s Circle of Achievement Award Wednesday, February 12 at the FANUC award banquet. They accepted the award on stage from FANUC’s President and CEO, Mike Cicco and Dick Motley, Director of the Authorized System Integrator Network. Both Lang and Ellenberger felt honored and humbled to be presented the award. This is only the 10th time this award has been given since the inception of the ASI Network.
According to FANUC, “This most prestigious award recognizes individuals whose long-term commitment, technical, sales and marketing contributions, and industry leadership have resulted in record-breaking sales and robotic industry growth.”
