QComp Announces Facility Expansion, Continues to Hire

Demand for Robotic Automation Drives Growth

Greenville, Wis. (June 13, 2019) - QComp Technologies, a robotic systems integrator, is beginning a 10,000-square-foot addition to its production facility in Greenville, Wis. The expansion, which is scheduled for completion this fall, is in response to an increase in demand for its robotic automation systems in the United States and Canada from new and existing clients.


To meet current and future demand, QComp is continuing to add automation and applications engineers and electrical and installation technicians. QComp is a 100% employee owned ESOP company and currently has 40 team members.
QComp provides robotic packaging systems, material handling systems and automation line integration to clients in the food, glass, solar, consumer products, pharmaceutical, plastics, paper and metals industries.
"As the labor shortage continues, more companies are investing in robotic automation to meet their ‘hands-on' assembly, production and packaging needs," says Mark Wild, executive vice president, OwnersEdge Inc. "Over the years, we've established a reputation as a leader that delivers robust, custom-engineered automation solutions to our clients."
In May 2018, QComp joined OwnersEdge Inc., an ESOP holding company based in Waukesha, Wis., that has five affiliate businesses - Baycom Inc., CC&N, QComp Technologies, Rhino Communication Rentals and TourGuide Solutions. As an OwnersEdge business and under the guidance of Wild, QComp has implemented a strategic planning process to drive growth.

OwnersEdge Inc. was formed in January 2015 as an ESOP holding company. Each of its portfolio companies are 100% employee owned. An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is an ownership model in which company employees have partial or full ownership of the value of the company, collectively. The benefits of ownership are typically considered part of a wealth development and/or retirement benefit strategy for employees. Each year, the value of the stock is established and reflected in employees' accounts.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
