“This partnership with Sinclair will leverage our combined industrial and education expertise to develop new advanced robotic manufacturing initiatives and robotics training and certification models that will address the increasing demand for talent now and into the future,” said Steve Barhorst, Motoman Robotics president and chief operating officer, in a statement.
Motoman Robotics, a division of Yaskawa America, is a global robotics manufacturer headquartered in Miamisburg. The company employs more than 350 people locally.
Sinclair’s proposed new 1-mill levy to go before Montgomery County voters in November would include funding for information technology and advanced manufacturing programs, said Adam Murka, a Sinclair spokesman.
“Sinclair is always looking for ways to put resources into these areas because that’s where the jobs of the future are going to be,” Murka said.
