Share Article

Wrabacon Incorporated has announced the finalization of a major factory expansion focused on providing even more comprehensive design and manufacturing capabilities for automated conveyor systems routinely used by businesses across the country.

Wrabacon Incorporated was established in a garage in Oakland, Maine over 26 years ago. The company – still based in Oakland Maine – has since grown to be one of the leaders in the automation industry. Recently, Wrabacon has announced the completion of a major factory expansion. Additionally, Wrabacon has also continued initiatives to bring even greater innovation to traditional automation systems.

One of Wrabacon's primary focuses during recent expansion efforts has been the innovation of tray handling equipment, which is used in a majority of the company's automation systems for applications ranging from food and drug handling to manufacturing automation and more.

As a proud Maine business, Wrabacon's commitment to creativity and craftsmanship has given the company an intangible advantage that few others have. However, in terms of sheer equipment and capabilities, Company President Rob Bartlett says “With 5,000 additional square feet of new manufacturing space and state of the art CAD/CAM equipment, we're more than ready to meet the demand for creative automation solutions by any industry that relies on them.”

Regarding the expansion of Wrabacon's facility on Old Waterville Road, Bartlett explains that more space and equipment was necessary in order to meet the needs of growing business from customers in the food, drug, and electronics industries. He adds, “We've come a long way, and we're excited to see how far our new space and capabilities will take us.”

With customers like Tom's of Maine, Quaker Oats Co, Bayer Diagnostics, Sara Lee, and Estee Lauder, Wrabacon has had the opportunity to provide intuitive automation solutions for automation applications of every variety. The company actively designs and manufactures the many components required for successful automation systems, with a focus on modular design that flexibly adapts to evolving production requirements.

Most recently, the company's larger facility and expanded capabilities have been used to design and manufacture advanced automation components such as tray handling systems, machine vision systems, automated conveyors, and more.
