BBS Automation provides assembly and testing systems for clients in the life sciences, automotive, energy and energy storage industries, many of who are Fortune 500 companies. In addition, the Bartlett, Ill.-based company performs contract manufacturing for customers that require multiple machines to be built.
Along with its Bartlett, Ill., location, BBS Automation has two facilities in Germany (including the Group Headquarters), two in China, one in Malaysia and an engineering office in Canada. The company is currently in the process of expanding into Mexico, according to Group Chief Operating Officer and President Darragh Staunton.
“BBS Automation is privately owned by industry leaders in the automation world, setting it apart from its competitors,” Staunton says. “The owners and managers of the company have spent their entire lives in the automation industry. They understand what it means to get a customized piece of automation built, which is something that our competitors don’t.”
