Demand for Robotic Automation Drives Growth
What: QComp Technologies, a robotic systems integrator, will break ground on a 10,000-square-foot addition to its production facility in Greenville. The expansion, which is scheduled for completion this fall, is in response to an increase in demand for its robotic automation systems in the United States and Canada from new and existing clients.
To meet current and future demand, QComp continues to add automation and applications engineering, and electrical and installation technician talent to the business. QComp is a 100% employee owned ESOP company and currently has 40 team members.
QComp provides robotic packaging systems, material handling systems and automation line integration to clients in the food, glass, solar, consumer products, pharmaceutical, plastics, paper and metals industries.
“As the labor shortage continues, more companies are investing in robotic automation to meet their ‘hands-on’ assembly, production and packaging needs,” says Mark Wild, executive vice president, OwnersEdge Inc. “We’re proud of our team and the reputation we’ve established for delivering robust, custom engineered automation solutions to our clients.”
