This company has elected to hire Brent Lindell, formerly of KUKA Robotics, as a Technical Sales professional to help increase opportunities and revenue. Lindell stated, “It is an exciting opportunity to start a new chapter in my life, and to sell robotic systems instead of just the robot.”
The team at ARC Specialties is also ready to receive the help from Lindell and are open to the changes that come with working more closely with a former vendor. Lindsay Burck, Marketing Coordinator at ARC Specialties said, “Brent is someone that ARC Specialties has come to rely on over the years for expertise in robotic technology. This company is confident that working closely with Mr. Lindell will allow the manufacturing and robotics industries to continue to thrive in Houston and worldwide.”
KUKA Robotics, a company with which ARC Specialties has a close vendor relationship, leads the industry in new robot technologies. One technology in the spotlight this year from KUKA is collaborative robotics, which allows for humans and robots to work together in close proximity, something that up until the last 2 – 3 years would have posed a large safety risk.
Robots also help to stimulate the economy, with an average of 3 jobs being created for every one robot that is installed (source: https://techcrunch.com/2016/05/13/robots-wont-just-take-jobs-theyll-create-them/).
