Dec 2014 – Motion Controls Robotics, Inc. (MCRI) is in the process of expanding their current 57,000 square feet facility located in Fremont Ohio. MCRI is a FANUC Authorized Integrator of robotic systems to the food & beverage, plastics, building & construction materials, converting, manufacturing and board & sheet goods industries. The need for innovative automation solutions is growing at record rates. According to the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), there has been a 35% increase in the number of robots sold in the last 9 months as compared to the same period in 2013. RIA estimates that there are currently 230,000 robots automating manufacturing and material handling process in facilities across America.
Motion Controls Robotics has paralleled this industry trend with strong growth in sales and hiring in 2014. To be able to keep up with customer demand, MCRI is adding a 4000 square foot addition to their facility. This addition will allow Motion Controls Robotics to make room for new employees and continue developing and servicing robotic systems for customers.
The expansion will not only include extra office space, but areas for a new machining center, clean room robot service and refurbishment area, and an additional conference room for customer and employee meetings including time saving and customer friendly media tools.
Scott Lang, company President, stated,
“The primary goal for the expansion project and for the additional hiring we are doing is to ensure continuous improvement in on-time delivery performance and product quality for our customers.”
The expansion will be complete in March of 2015 in time for Motion Controls Robotics to celebrate their 20th anniversary in the robotics industry.
