What factors have contributed the most to your growth in the past three years?

Dustin Konruff, vice president of operations, and Ruben Nielsen, vice president of sales and marketing: “Without a doubt, we have a great team of professionals at Pattyn that continue to be dedicated and are always refining their skills in the ever-changing and evolving automation industry. The COVID-19 pandemic also has been a major growth factor. As we work in automation, the lack of people in various workplaces has forced companies to heavily invest in automation and machinery. In addition to labor shortages, bringing more manufacturing back to the U.S. has also been a contributing factor. Lastly, the heightened focus on sanitation and hygiene. The removal of hands-on labor from touching medical- and food-grade items is only increasing the need for automation, which in turn increases the need for Pattyn.”

How would you describe your company culture?

“Relaxed, team-oriented environment that encourages collaboration and personal growth.”
