QComp was recently honored by ABB Inc. as its co-winner of the ABB 2016 North American Robotics Value Provider Award for Outstanding Performance. The awards were presented during ABB's annual Robotics Value Provider Conference held recently in Atlanta, GA. The award recognized QComp for its outstanding performance in automation integration. Greg Whitney, Vice President of Engineering and Manufacturing for QComp Technologies, accepted the award on behalf of the company.

"We have been working with ABB products and personnel for over 19 years and value our relationship with this leader in automation technologies," said Whitney. "We are delighted to be recognized for our team's commitment to providing the most advanced robotic solutions using ABB product."

The awards were presented by Gustavo Sepulveda, ABB's USA Robotics General Manager.

Sepulveda commented, "It is an honor to recognize our award winners. Each company demonstrated innovation, outstanding performance and leadership in their specific areas of expertise. We also strongly believe that their close working relationship with ABB is a key component of their success."
