Over 25 years experience providing integrated automation solutions for industry.
Creative Automation specializes in custom solutions
Creative Automation was formed in 1994 when founder Bernd Walter acquired the U.S. material handling division of SIG Automation. With an initial focus on SIG’s gantries and pick and place designs, Creative Automation has since expanded its repertoire to include robots, vision systems, RFID and many other technologies. From our early concentration on material handling with an emphasis on machine tool tending and cell-to-cell transfer, our operation has grown to incorporate conveyors, robots, palletizers, dispensing units, deburring systems and other equipment for industry, with a primary manufacturing facility encompassing 50,000 square feet.
All the while we have built up a strong staff with an experienced management team and highly knowledgeable control and mechanical engineers. And, to put it all together, we have an experienced crew of machine builders and electricians in the shop as well.
