Eight years after starting out in sheet metal processing and the temporary power supply sector, Trystar's production resources were no longer able to cope with the developing industries. "With the development of our product lines and the increasing dimensions of our cabinets, we were reaching the limits of the capabilities and service life of the old machines. We had to invest," explains Jim Koberg, Vice President of Factory Operations. That also applied to an old welding robot. "The old system was imprecise, expensive and only suitable for products made of mild steel," clarifies Brian Amacher, Director of Purchasing and Sourcing.
