History

History2Autotec was founded in 1972 by John Schuster, a mechanical engineer searching for a way to better serve the industry. John had an engineering design background, but wanted to create turn-key solutions for our clients. His idea consisted of five components: Conceive, Design, Build, Install and Service.

From that innovative foundation, Autotec grew.

Today, Autotec primarily is known for our plastics finishing, downstream automation systems, material handling systems and robotics. We remain committed to our turn-key approach while focusing on solving problems for our clients.
