ANN ARBOR, Michigan (September 30, 2008) – Elite members of Robotic Industries Association are recognized in a “Who’s Who” media campaign throughout the year, and now is the time for industry leaders to position their companies for the next installment. Qualified members will be honored in full-page ad insertions in Assembly magazine and in the Robotics Industry Directory.
Platinum Suppliers and Platinum Integrators that belong to RIA are highlighted in these ads. To appear in the next full-page Who’s Who insertions, a company must be a member in good standing as of November 1, 2008.
Platinum Integrators will be honored in the December issue of Assembly magazine which features their highly regarded Capital Equipment Spending Report. Platinum Suppliers will have their own ad in 2009 issues of Assembly magazine. Who’s Who ads run in RIA’s 2009 Robotics Industry Directory for both types of members (one for suppliers, one for integrators).
“Platinum is the highest level of membership in Robotic Industries Association. Special recognition like this is a reward for such a major investment,” said Jeffrey A. Burnstein, RIA’s Executive Vice President. “It is with thanks and appreciation that RIA honors these companies in full-page ads in leading trade journals.”
