“We are very excited about collaborating with Ivy Tech and manufacturers in central Indiana,” says Doug Schenher, vice president of Motoman Robotics, Customer Satisfaction Group. “We view Ivy Tech as an extension of our Motoman training department. With an installed base of over 1,000 robots in this area, this is a significant win for the regional workforce and manufacturers. Increasing the skills of the workforce in the areas of robotics and advanced manufacturing enables companies to achieve new levels of productivity and profitability."

Ivy Tech Community College Logo“Robotics is critical to Indiana’s advanced manufacturing sector and as companies strive to increase efficiencies, the use of automated technologies will continue to grow,” says Thomas J. Snyder, president of Ivy Tech Community College. “Other economic sectors are also relying more and more heavily on what has become over a $20 billion industry including military/defense and medicine/healthcare. Creating a training center featuring an industry leader in robotics makes sense for Indiana’s workforce and for Indiana’s businesses.”
