ABCO Automation, which designs and builds factory automation systems, has signed a Value Provider Program (VPP) agreement with ABB robotics.

VPP is a global third-party channel program for panel builders, installers, machine builders, original equipment manufacturers, and system integrators. 

It provides channel partners with the most current and relevant information, allowing participants to better serve customers as well as a local and global support network, training and sales and quotation tools, reflecting ABB’s level of quality. 

As a factory automation systems integrator, ABCO has access to a wide-range of high-end robotic solutions​,” said Jack Walsh, executive VP, sales & marketing, ABCO Automation. 

Our designs run the gamut, and ABB robots can handle virtually every robotic application, including palletizing, machine tending, small parts assembly, picking, and material handling, as well as provide an array of payload and reach options​.” 

He added, ABB will train its engineers and sales representatives to become ABB robot experts on dimension calculations, robot selection, quotes, and warranty claims. 

Our competence with ABB robots will not only give us a competitive advantage as a systems integrator, it will let us instruct our clients on the best deployment and maintenance of their robot(s)​,” added Walsh.
