Why Work Here?

Named a 2018 Top Workplace by the Hartford Courant!

An Automation Innovator Since 1945 The Arthur G. Russell Company has been an innovator in the field of automatic assembly equipment since 1945. At that time, the lack of adequate parts feeders and reliable automation components limited assembly speeds and equipment reliability. In response, AGR developed a line of vibratory feeders based on the modular Vibroblock® that was state-of-the-art both electrically and mechanically. These engineered feeders could deliver parts at much higher rates, which raised the bar for automatic assembly systems. Feeder performance was further enhanced with AGR's introduction of closed loop vibratory control and variable frequency operation. Other AGR innovations included modular mechanical devices such as cam driven pick and place units, grippers, part escapements, and rotary and linear actuators. Our ability to feed and handle parts at high speeds led to specialization in the ultra high-volume medical device and consumer products industries, where we have been designing, building, installing, and supporting world class assembly, test, inspection, and packaging systems for over 70 years. Continued application of more sophisticated controls, servo systems, sensors, and inspection equipment have allowed our systems to keep up with increasing customer demands for higher speeds and unprecedented reliability. Today, AGR remains committed to constantly being aware of the latest technologies, knowledgeable in their proper use, and creative in ways to apply them.
