HUNTSVILLE — It’s been an award-winning time for Huntsville-based Aerobotix recently.
Process engineer Samantha Stejskal has been named to Business Alabama’s “Women in Tech: 23 for ’23,” which recognizes women across the state for excellence in the technology sector.
And, the company received a special sales award from FANUC America, a global expert in CNCs, robotics and Robomachines.
A role model for young women considering a career in robotics, Stejskal joined Aerobotix in June 2021 after completing a degree in industrial engineering and mathematics from Olivet Nazarene University.
“I personally do not know many women who are also working in robotics but would love to see more in the near future,” she said.
Aerobotix was recognized with a 2022 Outstanding Sales Growth Award, which FANUC presents to an Authorized System Integrator whose calendar-year unit bookings increased by at least 50% year-over-year. Aerobotix is an AS9100-certified robotics integrator for the aerospace and defense industries.
Aerobotix provides robotic painting systems for unique high-performance coatings and solutions for sanding, inspections and mobile robotics.
“FANUC has played a major role in the Aerobotix success story,” said Josh Tuttle, Aerobotix business development manager. “Through our exclusive use of FANUC technology, we’ve been able to partner with the world leader in industrial robots, providing the most sophisticated, highest-reliability systems to our customers.”
This is the fifth time since 2010 Aerobotix has received the award.
“With a focus on addressing the needs of their aerospace and defense customers, Aerobotix has successfully delivered a variety of high-value automation solutions that improve quality, productivity and employee safety,” said Michael Wilman, FANUC America district sales manager for Alabama and Mississippi.
