Keith Wanner, President of RobotWorx, was recently named one of the “20 People to Know in Manufacturing 2015” by Columbus Business First magazine. Their monthly feature “20 People to Know…” highlights the achievements of 20 people who are “front and center” in their industries.
Wanner shared his take on the challenges facing the manufacturing industry, focusing mainly on the need to keep skilled labor and keep manufacturing in the U.S. He also discussed selling RobotWorx to Scott Technologies of New Zealand. “When I sold RobotWorx, I wanted to make sure the company that bought us would commit to keeping all the employees we have and to keep the business in Marion,” Wanner told CBF. “Scott has done this, and they have been a very good company to be part of.”
A great year in sales (so far) and great hires has Wanner optimistic about the future. “We see 2015 as being our best year ever,” he said to CBF. “Our goal is to continue to improve and to take advantage of all the latest technology and developments.”
