Columbia/Okura, established in Vancouver, WA, is celebrating its 10th Anniversary. It has been ten years since Columbia Machine, the pioneers in floor level palletizing, and Okura Yusoki, one of Asia's first producers of multi-articulated robots, combined to bring top-of-the-line robotic palletizers to North America.
Since their joining in February 1996, Columbia/Okura has risen to the top as a leader in the bag palletizing industry, producing up to 300 robots in its first decade. Columbia/Okura's customer service has been recognized for excellence with their 24 hour hotline, state of the art personnel training center, and on going support to keep their customer's plants running at peak performance. Columbia/Okura's 100 years of combined knowledge of material handling, engineering, and technology has made them a solid competitor in the palletizing industry and a company with a bright future.
