HOUSTON, July 18, 2012 -- There was once a time when the automation of manufacturing seemed way beyond the reach of most companies. That's no longer the case, according to Provision for Robotics, an automation consulting firm that offers manufacturers the ability to obtain multiple quotations to fulfill their automation needs by submitting a single request for quotations.
"Smaller manufacturers have historically felt that automation was out of their price range," said John Mitchell, founder and president of Provision for Robotics. "However, the cost of automation has fallen significantly over the last few years, and the smaller players are now able to reap the benefits. A typical ROI for a completed automation project can be less than one year."
After analyzing trends in the marketplace for small manufacturers, Mitchell discovered that there was a growing need for manufacturers to optimize production with automation, which led to his founding of Provision for Robotics.
"I'm not aware of any other business that offers what we do," said Mitchell. "There are a lot of providers that offer services to manufacturers looking to automate, but it's a biased view because they only offer one solution -- theirs."
Mitchell explained that since his company is not contracted to any one of the many automation technology manufacturing companies, it is able to supply clients with answers to their questions about the benefits and liabilities of an automation application for their business.
"We can give manufacturers more than one proposal to perform their automation project since a wide range of solution providers accept proposals through our website. This can lead to some competitive bids," Mitchell continued.
Automation solution providers may request to be added to Provision for Robotics' premier list of providers at http://www.provinc.net .
"Taking this step will help providers reduce their cost of sales, while receiving requests to create quality automation solutions for our clients," Mitchell concluded.
