POSTED 08/31/2010

KMT Robotic Solutions, Inc. (KMT-RS) is celebrating 25 years of providing leading U.S. and global companies with reliable and cost-effective robotic automation solutions designed to improve the safety and competitiveness of their manufacturing operations. The company held a party on August 13 where employees had a chance to enjoy a celebration of this significant event. President and CEO Kevin McManus presented mementos to the founders of the original company Robotic Production Technology; Chuck and Melinda Russo, along with former VP-Sales Jim Wogan, Sr.

In his comments Mr. McManus said “Achieving this significant milestone has not been as easy feat, and has required the extraordinary effort of our many team members, the commitment and support of our owners and several important global strategic supply relationships. Many companies, especially those in our industry, don’t survive being in business for more than 5-10 years, much less continue to thrive after a quarter-century. RPT and now KMT-RS, has and will continue to support our global customers with robust and reliable automation solutions, advanced technology and legendary service and support.

In addition two employees were honored for their 25 years of service to RPT/KMT-RS. Mary Roberts and Keith Miller have been valued team members of the company for the entire 25 years of its existence.

KMT Robotic Solutions was formed in December of 2006 with the union of KMT Cutting Systems in Ronneby, Sweden and Robotic Production Technology in Auburn Hills, Mich. KMT Robotic Solutions has more than 3,600 robots installed around the world and more than 25 years experience developing, designing, building, servicing and supporting robotic cutting, trimming and cleaning solutions for manufacturing customers.
