Factory Automation Systems, based in Atlanta, Georgia, received the Certified Robot Integrator designation from the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), the industry’s trade group.

“We are delighted to welcome Factory Automation Systems to our growing group of Certified Robot Integrators,” said Jeff Burnstein, President of RIA. “In order to become certified, integrators go through a rigorous process which includes an on-site audit, safety training and hands-on testing of key personnel among other important criteria. Based on feedback from the industry, we believe that achieving certification will be valuable to integrators looking to showcase their capabilities and experience to users and suppliers alike.

“Additionally, the program allows integrators to benchmark their own processes against best industry practices, allowing them to identify areas in which they can improve. This also helps the industry by strengthening the overall integrator channel,” Burnstein said.

Factory Automation Systems is the 12th systems integrator to achieve RIA certification.

“Factory Automation Systems (FAS) is proud to achieve the status of RIA Certified Robot Integrator,” said Ron Potter, the company’s Director of Robotics Technology.
