Corporate Resume
Great Lakes Automation Services, Inc. (GLASi), is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business and was founded in February of 2002. GLASi is a systems integrator that designs, manufactures and builds quality automated assembly and test equipment and provides service, tooling and parts to companies that utilize capital equipment in their manufacturing process. Prior to the establishment of GLASi in 2002, the current owners were each employed for 20 plus years in the automated assembly and test industry working for DT Assembly Machines Inc. (AMi). The many years spent at AMi provided the necessary experience to develop GLASi into a first-class provider and systems integrator of automated manufacturing processes. Over the past several years, the GLASi's capabilities have expanded significantly, allowing them to be very diverse in the industries in which they participate - automotive, medical device, consumer goods, ordnance and electronics. In May of 2004 GLASi, acquired AMi from DT Industries. This acquisition increased their customer base to over 250 and their machine installations to over 800 throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and China. GLASi has provided equipment and services to companies such as Ford Motor Company, where they built a $5 million system that assembled and tested a starter solenoid. They’ve built several automation systems for companies in the medical device market, including Becton Dickinson and Johnson & Johnson. Additional GLASi customers include Stant Manufacturing, TRW, Chrysler, Parker Hannifin, Thomas and Betts and Reliable Automatic Sprinkler. GLASi's systems provide several benefits to their customers, including state-of-the-art technologies and cost savings in the form of reduced labor and a quick time to market. Their on-time deliveries and unprecedented service is why 85% of their automation business is due to repeat customers. GLASi designs and integrates various types of automation systems, including automated assembly and test systems of discrete components; automated material handling; robot integration for assembly, parts handling and inspection; vision system integration; and lean manufacturing cells.
