A new global marketing agreement focused on manufactured-concrete producers calls for the Besser sales organization to promote the automated production and robotics-enabled handling solutions of St-Hubert, Quebec-based Slab Innovation, Inc.

“We’re looking forward to showing industry members how cost-effectively they can introduce robotics into their facilities for packaging, product inspection, vacuum grippers, pallet handling antiquing systems, splitting lines and wet cast demolding,” says Besser Director of International Sales and Applications Engineering Duane Rondeau.

“We’re excited to expand our global industry presence to producers throughout masonry, hardscape, manufactured stone, pipe and precast,” adds Slab Innovation President Benoit Slavinski. “This will allow us to focus our resources on development of engineered robotic solutions addressing the unique needs of the concrete products industry. The company will demonstrate robotic handling devices in the Besser booth at the ICON Expo 2018 Machinery & Equipment Show, February 9-10 in Indianapolis,” he adds.
