Robotic Industries Association (RIA) announced that Intelligrated has achieved recertification as part of the RIA Certified Robot Integrator program. Intelligrated achieved their initial certification in June 2012 by completing a rigorous process which includes an on-site audit and testing of key personnel among other important criteria. The certification program was established to provide robot integrators with a way to benchmark against industry best practices and allows robot users to develop a baseline for evaluating robot integrators. RIA currently has 21 Certified Robot Integrators and requires each of them to be recertified every two years.
We are thrilled that Intelligrated found significant value in the certification program and pursued recertification,” said Jeff Burnstein, President of RIA. “One of our goals with the certification program is to establish performance standards that provide robotic automation integrators a competitive edge and helps ensure their long term success.”
RIA’s certification program remains the benchmark for customers to evaluate vendors and minimize risk by identifying integrators with the required robotics and business expertise to ensure successful implementations,” said Earl Wohlrab, palletizing and robotics systems product manager, Intelligrated. “In addition to our recertification, we have added three more robotics experts to our staff, reinforcing the Intelligrated commitment to go above and beyond industry requirements.”
