Summit Engineered Automation, Your Automation Partner

Enhancing customer manufacturing with CUSTOM AUTOMATION SOLUTIONS & integrated CUSTOM ROBOTICS for more than 25 years

Summit Engineered Automation has been designing and building custom, manufacturing automation solutions since 1998. We act as a partner for all things automation by applying cutting-edge thinking and technologies to save your brand time and costs while boosting production quality.  We have worked with leading companies in the medical, pharmaceutical, plastics, electronics, cutting tool and consumer products industries.

Following customer research in 2014, we formally adopted a process that today we call the “Summit Agile Process”. Research showed that traditional relationships between custom automation suppliers and end customers were built on divergent goals. As we talked to more companies about projects which did not perform as expected we learned that communication, collaboration, project cost management and late deliveries with non-conforming performance were all common problems. 

Our agile-based process creates true partnerships with our clients with a process focused on risk analysis early and throughout the project. We want to be the most transparent automation supplier for you. Please take time to learn more about our methods and solutions that we believe are the best way to benefit your products. Don’t hesitate to reach out for an introduction.

With your collaboration, we can make the process even better! 

Best regards, 

Todd Bauernfeind, President Summit Engineered Automation
