Operational productivity is a priority for many of our clients, given the labor shortage we are experiencing. Companies are interested in investing in technology, robotics and automation to allow employees to become technicians instead of laborers to boost their productivity, improve safety and make their job more interesting. This allows companies to increase their output with their current staff and they can afford to pay them higher wages and retain top talent.
However, these investments are typically very significant and there are many factors that need to be weighed and considered to ensure that the right automation is applied to the right work.
Kocer Consulting and Engineering has helped many companies to evaluate their operations and identify those consistent, high-volume tasks where automation and robotics can be applied to improve operational performance, quality, safety and productivity.
Romac Industries is a manufacturer of pipe fittings for the water works industry. We hired Kocer Consulting and Engineering to help us improve our Shipping, Receiving and Warehousing operations at our Headquarters in Bothell Washington. Dan and company provided us with an audit that resulted in 40+ recommendations for improvement in our processes, layout and equipment. These best practice improvements are just what we need and will have a significant, positive effect on our operations. Dan came in on time and within budget with his quote and was very pleasant to work with. He and his group were professional, knowledgeable and very flexible in working with us and around our busy schedule. We will most definitely use Kocer Consulting and Engineering in the future as the need arises.
