The Association for Advancing Automation, Ann Arbor, Mich., has launched a new blog-based website, www.a3automate.org, to promote the use of automation. The site features blog posts that cover automation strategies and stories of businesses that are competing successfully in today’s global marketplace.
The website also contains the association's new "Why I Automate" video series. In the first video, Drew Greenblatt, CEO and owner of Marlin Steel Wire Products in Baltimore, tells how a bagel basket-maker, faced with the prospect of going out of business, transformed its operations by investing in automation. This gave Marlin Steel an opening into new markets for its products.
