The Guardian features APT Manufacturing Solutions

The Guardian  featured APT Manufacturing Solutions in a story regarding the shortage of skilled workers in manufacturing.

For someone who makes “job-killing robots” Tony Nighswander has an ironic problem. The US jobs market has not been this hot for 50 years and the president of APT Manufacturing Solutions, an Ohio-based company that specializes in robotic equipment, can’t find enough workers.

“Robots killing jobs, that’s a myth. Nine out of 10 times when we put in robots, they increase production but they don’t take away people,” says Nighswander. And right now “there’s a war for people”, he says as he shows off APT’s shiny, air-conditioned facility in Hicksville, a rural village set in flat farmland on the edge of Indiana.
