The robots are coming….(and we need them to hurry)

In partnership with M3 and Baker Tilly, First Business Bank presents a dynamic look at automation in the manufacturing industry. In this seminar, W. Kent Lorenz, First Business director and retired chairman & CEO of Acieta, will present an overview of the current state of industrial manufacturing globally, nationally, and in Wisconsin. He’ll discuss robot adoption rates, robot cost justification, and how automation is critical to addressing Wisconsin’s looming demographic changes.

Expected key takeaways include:

  • How and why automation improves your processes while creating a competitive advantage
  • Wisconsin growth predictions and challenges related to them
  • Calculating ROI on your automation investment; it’s more than just the labor savings

Registration is complimentary and seating is limited. Please RSVP to reserve your spot.


  • W. Kent Lorenz, Retired Chairman and CEO, Acieta
