Our Culture
A place where people matter most
At JR Automation, we focus on people: our customers, our team, and our community. As we've grown, we've held onto our small-business roots, and there's a personal, human touch in everything we do. We work hard, and we work together. We pursue shared interests and mutual benefit. We encourage ambitious ideas, and we never give up on delivering results. We believe the future is bright, because we're building it together.
