During the past few days, the IRIS sales team attended a private Universal Robots partner event in which several distributors and integrators were awarded for their hard work. A little background, IRIS Factory Automation partners with Universal Robots to provide a fully featured palletizing system to manufacturing facilities.
Rob Fell, President of IRIS Factory Automation gives recognition to both Universal Robots and the Team at IRIS by saying
"I'm grateful for all of the hard work our team has put in to earn this recognition and we appreciate UR believing in and supporting us over the years." -Rob Fell, President
In attendance representing IRIS Factory Automation was Brittany Carroll, Channel Partner Manager and Karl Koenigsberger, Business Development Manager. Both give their summary below.
"It was a great Partner event hosted by Universal Robots. With over 150 guests in attendance from around the US, Canada, and Europe, everyone was excited to be in one place after a few years off due to the Pandemic. We started the event with dinner, cocktails, and networking on Monday. Tuesday we were all anxiously awaiting the UR20 reveal and looking forward to what UR has been working on and what plans they have for the future. We spent the day learning about new initiatives, strategies, and marketing, and getting to know UR distributors across the US. They ended the day with awards and unbeknownst to us, IRIS received an award for 2022 Best CSI Partner. Our Distributor Partner FPE Automation also won a Platinum Partner Award and additional acknowledgments for 25+ Robots Sold by Joe Judge and Brian Einzig at FPE as well. We ended the evening with another great dinner along with networking and socialization. We are grateful for Universal Robots’ hospitality and are looking forward to what the future holds!" -Brittany Carroll, Channel Partner Manager IRIS Factory Automation
"What a great event coordinated by Jaqueline Beazley and Joe Campbell to assemble the distributors and partners alike that have made Universal Robots the pre-eminent name in the cobot movement. While recognition is assuredly humbling, my real excitement stems from the peak behind the curtains that we were afforded to see what the team at UR has on the roadmap for the coming year. While I have a well known dislike for business jargon, sometimes there’s no replacement for the original. As a teaser, the one word that excites me about where this ship is headed: *synergy* between UR, channels, and integration partners. Stay tuned for the SoMe channels (if you know, you know) for updates along the way! - Karl Koenigsberger, Business Development Manager
We are looking forward to many more years of partnership and growth with Universal Robots.
