Schuler North America Unveils Digitalization and Modernization Best Practices with an Industry Workshop and Grand Opening of New Facility

February 14, 2023

The market is oversaturated with content about overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), digitalization, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). While these topics are informative and generate excitement for the future of manufacturing, there is a key ingredient missing: a practical how-to solution to making production smarter.

Schuler image 1Schuler North America, a subsidiary of Schuler Group GmbH, will host a Digitalization & Modernization Workshop on February 23, 2023, coinciding with the grand opening of Schuler’s Michigan Ave. service facility in Canton, MI.
