The center, slated to open this spring and already ramping up, according to the company, is staffed by systems integration engineers and will offer a range of equipment and capabilities, from customer consultation to building cells and performing run-offs. The 10,000-square-foot facility will expand Methods’ existing automation program and provide systems for customers throughout the United States, the company says.

Mike Kierce, systems integration manager, will be managing the new automation center.
