ORION TOWNSHIP, Mich. BACA Systems announced their collaboration with Marqet Group on Aug. 7 to expand their fabricator outreach and further connect with the stone surfacing industry.

This announcement came shortly after KUKA Robotics, a world leader in robotic technology, recognized BACA with their System Partner of the Year award.

baca marqetPart of the new effort will be a series of fabrication seminars throughout North America, with the first scheduled for later this month in Seattle.

Located just outside Detroit, in the automation capital of the North America, BACA Systems initially launched their Robo SawJet in 2014. The Robo SawJet is a reliable, high-production dual table cutting system which yields up to a 70% reduction in labor costs and 20% material optimization.

Powered by KUKA, the Robo SawJet is waterproof and dustproof — making it highly reliable and maintenance-proof for the harsh environment of stone manufacturing.

“In today’s market, our fabrication customers are looking for the best ways to optimize their production facilities to remain competitive,” said Chuck Russo, BACA Systems founder. “Our goal is to continue growing our outreach and further educate the North American fabricators on how they can grow their business, increase profitability, and improve safety standards,” he added.

“Our alignment with BACA Systems is a natural fit for our agency,” Marquez noted. “We are proactively working with key surface industry players, most of which already have BACA Systems solutions as part of their operations.”

Marqet Group will support BACA Systems’ marketing efforts in North America, coordinating their programs, events, communications, partnerships and industry relations.

BACA Systems will host regional fabrication seminars across most metropolitan markets of the United States through the remainder of 2017 and into 2018, when Canadian markets will also be included.

During these seminars, BACA Systems will educate stone fabricators on business awareness by providing valuable workshops on how to increase sales and profitability. The workshops include topics such as digitalization, shop optimization, use of modern technology, and marketing strategies to increase sales.

The first of many seminars will take place in Seattle on Aug. 24 at Granite and Marble Specialties.

“Our business model is deeply rooted in adding value and building relationships with our fabrication customers; that is why they are willing to open their doors and allow other fabricators to come in and see what our systems can do,” Russo said. “Utilizing our resources and industry partners will help us continue to foster more relationships and prepare for the growth ahead as our technology partners continue to expand.”.
