Libra Industries, a privately held electronics manufacturing services provider, announces that it recently presented Juki with its first annual Strategic Partnership Award. Rod Howell, Libra Industries’ President, presented the award to Bob Black, President & CEO of Juki Automation Systems, in the Juki booth during the recent IPC APEX EXPO.

Libra Industries and Juki have been working together for more than 25 years. Today Libra Industries runs four Juki lines in its Ohio-based manufacturing facility. Libra Industries selected Juki for the first award because of the attentive, consistent customer service it has received over the years.

Juki provides over-the-top customer service,” commented Howell. “They are one of the most, if not the most, user-friendly and responsive strategic partners we have ever dealt with. Between Bob Black with Juki and Dave Trail with Horizon Sales, if Libra needs something – even if it is outside of their offering – they make it happen.”

Black commented, “All of us at Juki really appreciate the recognition given to us by Libra Industries. They have been a fantastic customer for more than 20 years and we really appreciate their loyalty to Juki.  We look forward to supporting the continuing growth of their business in the years to come.”

Libra Industries continues to provide customized manufacturing solutions to help make its customers more competitive and improve their profitability. For more information, visit www.libraind.com.
