Tech-Con becomes first RIA Certified Robot Integrator in Canada

Company becomes fourteenth RIA Certified Robot Integrator.

By ·

Tech-Con Automation of Burlington, Ontario, has become the first Canadian systems integrator to achieve the Certified Robot Integrator designation from the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), the industry’s trade group.

“We are delighted to welcome Tech-Con Automation to our growing list 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 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 explained.

“We are excited to have achieved the RIA Certified Integrator status and honored to be the first in Canada” states Nino LaDuca, general manager, Tech-Con. “Our people have worked extremely hard in strengthening our business operations and increasing our technical capabilities.  We believe that these efforts along with the rigorous criteria for achieving and maintaining the Certified Integrator status will continue to recognize Tech-Con as a reliable and capable integrator.”

Tech-Con is the fourteenth RIA Certified Robot Integrator. RIA requires each certified integrator to be recertified every two years. Detailed information on the certification program and the certified robot integrators can be found at Robotics Online.
