The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) has announced that SIASUN Robot & Automation has joined RIA as its first Chinese member. Understanding the huge market opportunity of industrial robots, China has fully embraced the power of automation and sees robotics and automation as strategic areas for growth.

As part of the RIA network, SIASUN will gain connections to members, potential partners and staff; learn about new technologies; and have access to support in North America.

According to a 2015 report from the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), by 2018 China is expected to almost triple its sales of robots. And, by 2019, the IFR predicts that more than 1.4 million new industrial robots will be installed in factories around the world - with China pushing hard to be one of the top providers.

“We sought out a membership with RIA because we recognized that if we are to expand in North America and other countries, it’s important to have a relationship with an organization that can offer the support and connections we need to achieve our growth goals,” said Dr. Daokui Qu, CEO and Founder of SIASUN.

RIA represents global leaders in robotics and related automation technologies, while playing a visible role in educating the public and promoting the benefits of automating. The organisation also publishes robot safety standards and raises supplier quality with programmes such as the system integrator certification. With its vantage point, RIA conducts industry research and analysis that enables member companies to understand the latest robotics industry trends and opportunities. RIA is part of the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), which, along with its sister organisations Advancing Vision + Imaging (AIA) and Motion Control & Motor Association (MCMA), represents over 1,000 companies in the automation industry worldwide.

“We fully appreciate the powerful role Chinese automation users and manufacturers play in the worldwide market,” said Jeff Burnstein, President of RIA. “That’s why we held our first-ever US-China robotics forum at our Automate event in April. As our initial Chinese member, SIASUN is showing other robotics companies how much they can benefit from the connections and support RIA offers. We’re looking forward to having them join our many other international members as we continue to expand RIA and A3 around the world.”
