Company becomes certified robot integrator
Factory Automation System was named as a Certified Robot Integrator by the Robotic Industries Association; they are the 12th systems integrator to receive RIA certification.
Factory Automation Systems, based in Atlanta, Georgia, received the Certified Robot Integrator designation from the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), the industry’s trade group.
“We are delighted to welcome Factory Automation Systems to our growing group 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, safety training 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 said.
Factory Automation Systems is the 12th systems integrator to achieve RIA certification.
“Factory Automation Systems (FAS) is proud to achieve the status of RIA Certified Robot Integrator,” said Ron Potter, the company’s Director of Robotics Technology.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
