Konnexio is revolutionizing the world of machine automation with a first-of-its-kind technology that accommodates product changes more easily and can be reused for future product variances. “Instead of building one large, rigid machine we have been focusing on making each process its own machine and linking them together,” President Konrad Konnerth says. “It’s a paradigm shift in how people think, but it’s important.”
Konnerth founded the London, Ontario-based company in 2003 with a goal to develop automation machines that could easily change with the needs of North American manufacturers. Prior to starting Konnexio, Konnerth worked as the director for engineering for a German machine company’s plant in Canada that manufactured high-speed, rigid machines.
