Gibson Engineering is a distributor of products used to automate manufacturing processes. We are also a team of engineers who know how to apply those products for maximum return on investment. We provide products, support and training to our customers in disciplines spanning robotics, vision, motion, ergonomics, material handling, safety, sensing, pneumatic automation and machine controls. Our engineers sit shoulder to shoulder with customer engineers to develop solutions which reduce time to market, increase throughput and yield, enable traceability and save energy. Our mission is to increase customer productivity, competitiveness and profitability.
Historically we have served the New England market, but several years ago we decided to stop saying no to people who wanted to do business with us in other parts of the world. Since then, while the majority of our business is still in the six New England states, we have done projects in Germany, Costa Rica, Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Mexico.
We serve anyone involved in manufacturing, but over the last few years our largest customer segment has been life science, followed by machine builders, photovoltaics, food and beverage, packaging and consumer goods.
Our top three vendors include one from Japan, one from Germany and one from the USA. Together they represent over a half a billion dollars of R&D annually.
