rubber & plastics
Many companies in the rubber and plastics industry struggle to maintain a workforce big enough to meet their production needs and willing to brave the working conditions. Heat, noise, noxious odors, night shifts, monotony—none of it bothers Baxter.
From loading and unloading lines to machine tending, Baxter excels at a variety of key tasks. And it can be retrained quickly to accommodate frequent line turnover. Baxter delivers multipurpose automation that makes it an affordable alternative to custom-built or semicustom automation solutions limited to a single task. That means you can reduce costs and avoid offshoring.
