Celebrating 25 Years in Business


RobotWorx is proud to celebrate 25 years in business as an industrial robotics integrator to companies worldwide. 

RobotWorx started in 1992, when welding engineer and entrepreneur, Keith Wanner, had a vision to provide high quality reconditioned robotic systems at an affordable price.  He wanted to fill the gap in the market of large companies buying new robots, and small companies looking to automate but unable to afford the cost of a brand new system.  He started the company out of a spare bedroom in his own home in Indianapolis, Indiana, later moving the company to central Ohio in the early 2000’s.  Today, RobotWorx is located in Marion, OH, in a 68,000 square foot facility located on 10 acres of land. 

RobotWorx specializes in offering both new and reconditioned industrial robots, complete workcells, and robot parts from leading manufacturers, including FANUC, Yaskawa Motoman, ABB, Universal Robots, and KUKA.  Our experts can provide robot-only packages, or full integration depending on our customers’ specific goals and needs.  Every robot purchased from RobotWorx comes equipped with our exclusive RobotWorx Value Package, guiding our customers to the utmost success with their system.  Our focus on the details for each customer’s robotic system has created loyal customers and new customers throughout the years.


“As a first time customer we were given the best treatment when it comes to training and service. RobotWorx has met all of our requirements and we would use them again. It is the best dollar value found for this type of product." -John T.

"I have purchased two robots in the past 18 months from RobotWorx and have nothing but good things to say. They have provided top quality re-conditioned robots at a reasonable price and have a very knowledgeable sales staff and support team. I would recommend RobotWorx for anyone’s next industrial robot project." - Sam P.

“We just purchased our 2nd robotic Welding system from RobotWorx. We bought our first system in 2008 and, in terms of labor savings and improved product quality, it started paying off the first day we installed it. We looked around for months at different robot system manufacturers and we couldn’t beat the combination of Price, Quality, and Service that RobotWorx offers. We had such a good experience with our first system from RobotWorx that it was a “no-brainer” to buy our second system from them as well – we literally didn’t consider anyone else. We are in the process of setting it up now.” - Anonymous

Along with our loyal customers, RobotWorx contributes a lot of its success to our dedicated employees, and strive to keep our employees happy.  A few employees chimed in on what this monumental 25 year anniversary means to them. “I feel a sense of confidence working at a company that has been in business for 25 years. This shows that we have had growing pains but learned to maneuver through them and still come out with success and a lot of great relationships along the way; with our customers and each other at RobotWorx. I have never worked at a place where I can say that I have met such amazing people whom I refer to as my “work family.” – Candi Sherman, Sales.   

“I have only been with this company for 2 years, but I have learned so much about a new industry and gained an exceptional work family. What makes it even better is having a company that stands behind the Sales team and the product for exceptional Customer Support. Thank You for a great 2 Years, and Happy 25th Anniversary RobotWorx! “ Melissa Miles, Sales.

RobotWorx was acquired in 2014 to Scott Technology Limited, a publicly traded company located in New Zealand. RobotWorx continues to expand and offer robotic systems to companies worldwide, and strives to provide the highest quality systems at the best dollar value.   

RobotWorx thanks our employees, our loyal customers, and our future customers. Cheers to 25 years, and here’s to the next 25 more! For more information, contact RobotWorx experts online or at 740-251-4312.
