Farmington Hills, Michigan (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
Exotic Automation & Supply, a leading manufacturer and distributor of automation systems, components, and material handling solutions, continues to garner attention for its line of In-System Damage Protection products.
Exotic Automation & Supply’s Specialty Products Group’s In-System Damage Protection products are featured in the October 2011 edition of Assembly. In the article, “Preventing In-System Damage,” Exotic’s carrier pads, finger bumper strips, wear pads, body rest pads, rollers, rail covers, and bumper pads are specifically mentioned.
“As manufacturers continue to search for operational cost efficiencies a logical focus is how they’re handling sensitive materials such as Class A finished surfaces. We’ve been able to successfully leverage our material handling expertise within the automotive sector and apply it to virtually every industry,” said Steven Orlando, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Exotic Automation & Supply.
Exotic Automation & Supply’s Specialty Products Group began as Exotic Rubber & Plastics in 1963. The company’s reputation as a provider of superior material handling solutions led the company to begin providing engineering, systems, and components for automation in 1972.
“Exotic has always offered material handling products for as long as I have been with the company. Over the last few years we have experienced a marked increase in attention for our line of In-System Damage Protection products,” said Henry G. Testa, Sales Manager at Exotic Automation & Supply.
The changing face of manufacturing in North America is evident in the diversity of Exotic Automation & Supply’s customer base. In the beginning Exotic’s customers were nearly exclusive to automotive OEMs and their suppliers. Today, customers are involved in industries ranging from aerospace, defense, mining, power generation, and the lithium ion battery sector. A fact highlighted by the company’s participation in The Battery Show 2011 – The Expo for Advanced Batteries October 25-27 at the Suburban Collection Showplace, Novi, Michigan.
“It’s great to see how our company is partnering with innovative corporations involved in manufacturing products that were inconceivable just a decade ago. I’m proud to see Exotic expand with the needs of our customers,” said Tom Marino, President of Exotic Automation & Supply.
