Creative Automation Becomes RIA Certified Robot Integrator

The Certified Robot Integrator program strengthens the overall integrator channel and allows integrators to benchmark their own processes against best industry practices.

Creative Automation has received the RIA Certified Robot Integrator designation. In order to become certified, Creative Automation completed a rigorous process which includes an on-site audit and testing of key personnel among other important criteria.


"We are pleased that Creative Automation has joined our growing list of RIA Certified Robot Integrators," said Jeff Burnstein, President of RIA. "The Certified Robot Integrator program strengthens the overall integrator channel and allows integrators to benchmark their own processes against best industry practices. Based on industry feedback, we have found that achieving certification has proven to be valuable for integrators looking to showcase their capabilities to both users and suppliers."

"We at Creative Automation Inc. are proud to have achieved RIA Certified Robotic Integrator status as part of our commitment to providing our customers, advanced and high quality automation solutions in our market segments (machine tool tending, cell to cell transfer, deburring and dispense)," said Gerd Walter, VP of Operations at Creative Automation.

RIA requires each certified integrator to be recertified every two years. Detailed information on the certification program and the certified robot integrators can be found on a special section of Robotics Online. Integrators interested in becoming certified can contact Jeff Burnstein at 734/994-6088.

"Robotics customers, of course, still need to conduct their own due diligence on the suppliers they select," said Burnstein. "RIA cannot guarantee the work of any integrator or recommend which integrators to choose. We have over 70 system integrator members and look forward to having more of them go through the certification process in the near future."
