The Future is Within our Reach – Or at least Within a Robot’s Reach

JHFoster recently hosted its second set of robotic expos this year – one held in Fargo, ND (June 6th) and the other in Alexandria, MN (June 7th). When Mark Augustin, VP of Automation, was approached by KVRR – a leading source of local news, weather and sports for the Fargo/Moorhead area – wanting to cover the story about JHFoster and the Industrial Robotics and Automation Expo, he jumped at the chance. Apparently, one of the station executive’s saw JHF’s expo post on Facebook and sent a reporter over to cover!

Watch the newscast below.








The goal of the expos is to provide customers the opportunity to see how robotics can help their workforce. Both events were very successful. JHFoster’s staff, along with vendor representatives were on hand to present the latest in industrial robots and automation allowing attendees to get an in-depth look at how robotic automation works and the differences between traditional and collaborative robots. Live demonstrations were held allowing guests to get an up close and personal look at how easily they can be programmed to perform certain tasks.

Be sure to check out the next set of shows coming up this September in Sioux Falls, SD and Mankato, MN.  For more information and complete details on these events, click below.
