About GE Fanuc
Over 20 years ago, GE and FANUC Ltd. of Japan formed GE Fanuc, an automation company dedicated to delivering technology and services to improve automation on a worldwide basis. The automation industry has matured a great deal since then. Many companies have come and gone, and GE Fanuc has become one of the leading brands, recognized for delivering high technology products and services in both hardware and software.
We operate in three closely related markets: Automation, Embedded Computing and CNC. In the Automation and CNC markets, we provide computer boards, systems and software packages used to control and report on factory production lines and production tools. In the Embedded market we produce boards and systems used in defense, telecommunications, aviation and many other types of applications in other markets.
GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms is part of the GE family, with the resources of a multibillion dollar parent company behind us. We gain many advantages from our membership in the GE family, but it is our customers who benefit most. They have the security of working with a mature, stable and highly respected partner. They have access to a global organization with significant human and financial resources. They can rely on our strong service and support infrastructure, and our advanced supply chain and manufacturing processes. Someone once expressed all this in rather plain language: "Nobody ever got fired for hiring GE."
We work toward a single goal: to help our customers solve their design challenges and get to market more quickly and with a competitive advantage. We design and manufacture products that are simple to install, free from defects, easy to use and that give our customers the flexibility and range of features essential to meeting their objectives. We strive to be more than just another vendor. Our goal is to become a strategic addition to your business.
GE Fanuc was one of the first companies in the United States to become a certified ISO 9001 manufacturer. We design our products to meet global design standards, including CE mark requirements. What's more, we rededicate ourselves to quality every day through our Six Sigma Quality Initiative, which provides statistical tools for measuring customer needs and satisfaction, and shows us ways we can improve even further.
