“Fanuc is fully committed to ‘Service First’, a corporate theme which means that customer service is our highest priority,” said Rick Schneider, chairman and CEO, Fanuc America. “That commitment includes lifetime maintenance for all Fanuc products throughout their production life.

“With 25 sales and service locations in the Americas, and a total of 250 service locations in 46 countries worldwide, we’re positioned in close proximity to our customers all over the world.”

The company expects to complete its capacity expansions in North and South America by July, 2016.
