Epson Robots recently honored its top robotics distributors of its fiscal year 2023. Approximately 60 AutomateFirstSM partners were in attendance, representing nearly 30 different organizations, at the Robotics Distribution Conference that took place on June 28, 2023 at the Epson America, Inc. headquarters in Los Alamitos, Calif.
The conference was held in Epson’s new state-of-the-art Executive Briefing Center which allows Epson customers, partners and community members to interface with Epson technologies as well as conduct their own business.
It incorporates Epson’s latest solutions to emphasize Epson’s product innovation and philosophy at all levels of business and operations. Robotics customers can visit the advanced robotic solutions demonstration area as well as review their projects with the application engineering team that is on campus. In addition, the robot training area is where customers can obtain hands-on programming and service training for SCARA and 6-axis robots.
“This past fiscal year, Epson Robots has seen great success in partnership with our standout distributors and leading robot technology. The Robotics Distribution Conference provided us with the opportunity to honor existing and new distributors for taking robot performance to the next level,” said Tom Kettell, director of robotics at Epson. “These distributors embraced our team marketing approach, ensuring all sales team members completed Epson trainings, took online courses, and engaged with the Epson team to achieve success.”
