Kevin Saylor established ROI in 2006. Kevin’s career began on the production floor at Norton Company. He spent 15 years in operations and management for three divisions before leaving as General Manager of Norton Pike to join Schunk USA as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. A year later, he took over as President. Kevin has always been very involved in application assessment and solutions, and he began honing his robotic tooling skills. Kevin moved to Schmalz in 1999 to co-found and run the North American operations. In his time at Schmalz he added vacuum tooling design and package handling to his skill set.
Kevin enjoys applying ROI’s resources and ingenuity to solving customers’ difficult problems with long-lasting, it-for-purpose solutions. ROI has delivered over 500 solutions to more than 100 small and large-scale customers throughout the US and Canada. Along the way, Kevin has obtained a number of Utility Patents with many more in the works.
Keith Saylor joined ROI on a full-time basis in 2018 to support his customers’ access to, and success with, ROI’s modular PALLETPOD and POWERSTAND equipment offerings.
