APT Manufacturing Solutions becomes a RIA Certified Robot Integrator

May 28, 2019

APT recently joined an elite group of robot integrators by becoming an RIA Certified Robot Integrator. The RIA Certified Robot Integrator program distinguishes a company not only for their high level of skill and experience, but for having met the exacting requirements of RIA’s rigorous certification process.
Certification gives robot users looking for a robot integrator a baseline for evaluating candidates they feel meet the requirements for their very important contract.

Robot integrators who are certified by the RIA are recognized in the industry as part of a select group of accomplished, trustworthy professionals. They are able to leverage their certification to enhance their competitiveness. The result is that leading global and domestic firms utilizing robotic automation have awarded major robot integration contracts to RIA certified integrators.

“We felt that becoming an RIA Certified Robot Integrator was the next logical step in communicating our level of expertise in controls and robotics”, said Anthony Nighswander, President of APT Manufacturing Solutions. “Although this certification did require a significant investment of time and resources to prepare and certify, we knew that our team was up for the challenge. With the number of players that have “popped up” in the robotic space recently, we want to constantly differentiate ourselves from lesser equipped organizations. We also appreciate our partner, FANUC America, for the constant support and training in robot technologies.”
