MEDIA ALERT: FANUC America Hosts Governor Rick Snyder

FANUC America, the leading supplier of robots, CNCs and factory automation will host Governor Rick Snyder at its Rochester Hills, Michigan headquarters on Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 3:15 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.

The Governor will review FANUC’s latest automation technologies and discuss FANUC’s involvement in education with the company’s senior management. He will also address a group of FANUC’s Authorized System Integrators who design and build automation systems for manufacturing using FANUC’s products.

“We are honored that Governor Snyder will visit our headquarters,” said Mike Cicco, president and CEO of FANUC America. “Our products are applied in a wide range of industries including automotive, aerospace, food, and pharmaceuticals to name a few. In fact, many of our technologies are designed and built here in Michigan, including our line of painting robots, and a variety of automation software products.”

Since 2010, FANUC has lead the effort to address the critical challenges caused by a shortage of skilled workers, and helped change the perceptions of careers in manufacturing. Currently, there are over 640 education providers offering FANUC’s Certified Education Training program, which represents the largest network of schools providing hands-on applied technology in manufacturing automation. Since the program started, FANUC America has made over $34 million “in-kind” charitable contributions to education.
