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.

It looks a little different from team to team, but wherever you find JR Automation people around the world, you'll find people supporting each other, having fun, and giving back to their communities.

Since 1980
Today, JR Automation is a world-wide systems integrator and technology innovator.

Founded in 1980 by Ken Assink, JR Automation has designed and built the right solutions to fit customers' needs for decades. Our innovative solutions and strong reputation caught the attention of investors, and Ken sold JR Automation to Huizenga Group in 1995.

For the next 20 years, we invested in cutting-edge technology, cementing our leadership in factory automation and system integration. We added facilities in Michigan and South Carolina, became ISO certified, and developed the business unit structure that would come to define our current culture.

After selling to Crestview Partners in 2015, we adopted lean management principles, enhanced program management, and developed more scalable processes. In 2017, we grew through strategic acquisitions across North America, Europe, and Asia. With facilities and dedicated teams across the globe, we continue to grow and evolve to help our customers succeed.
