Pioneer Industrial Systems is an Authorized FANUC Robotics Integrator and uses leading edge technology paired with engineering expertise to create solutions for manufacturers, both large and small. A large portion of the business deals with the tire industry, plus they look to help local manufacturers with their automation challenges. Says co-owner Todd Hendricks Jr., “We constantly hear stories about how companies are struggling to hire for all their open positions. We firmly believe that both large and small manufacturers can quickly benefit from automation. Pioneer Industrial Systems can help spot opportunities for automation, design a solution, present a quote, and complete the project, so you have a turn-key solution that just works.” Currently Pioneer employs 40 full-time staff and are looking to continue to grow.
“Pioneer Industrial Systems is committed to its employees and takes pride in a positive, active and engaging culture.” – Todd Hendricks Jr.
