Industry voices

"Automation will not completly replace the human element in food and beverage processing plants, but it will certainly augment the labor content in the years to come...My suggestion is not to shy away from automation, but to embrace it. Find a good automation partner and invite them into your facilities to identify the opportunities. Automation is here to stay in the food & beverage industries - be a part of the change."

-Randy Breaux President Motion Industries, Article; Get Competitive Through Automation, Food Processing Magazine September 2019

"Advances in robotics are taking shape and showing up in more food service operations. Yesterday's science fiction is today's reality! As labor cost rise it will become more economical to automate certain areas of our industry.
