TECHNI Waterjet Celebrates 25 Years
After starting with a niche in the robotic waterjet market, the company has expanded over time with facilities in North America, Europe and Asia.
TECHNI Waterjet™ (Lenexa, KS) is celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year. The company was formed in 1989 by Darren Reukers and Glenn Langdon to provide robotic and automation systems to the automotive industry.
After finding a niche in the robotic waterjet market for high speed trimming of automotive components, such as headliners, floor and trunk carpets, door panels and instrument panels, TECHNI Waterjet took off and has since become a global leader in the waterjet industry.
Each year the firm has progressed while introducing newer and better products and in more countries, across the world, than ever before. In 2004, the company opened a U.S. operation to meet the expanding needs of our North American customer base. By 2009, the U.S. operation has grown to equal the worldwide operations.
TECHNI also introduced a European operating facility in Poland to keep up with the constant demand of waterjet cutting technologies in Europe. In 2013, they opened up a facility in Thailand to accompany the ever growing Asian market.
“25 years is a long time in business, and it doesn’t happen by chance. It is a result of bringing together good people who want to make a difference, and are prepared to do whatever it takes to get there. I want to thank the incredible support of our loyal staff, many of whom have been with us for more than 20 years, for making our company the success it is today. I also want to thank our customers, who have become close friends and are considered part of the “TECHNI Family.” I’m looking forward to the next 25 years with as much excitement and enthusiasm as I did when I was a 22 year old boy starting out in business with my best friend. We are still best friends and business partners, because we are both driven by the same goal; ‘To build a company producing exciting and innovative technology, that appreciates and respects it’s employees, and always focus’ on complete customer satisfaction,’” stated the managing director, Darren Reukers.
TECHNI Waterjet™ would like to thank all of their employees, current and potential customers, distributors, and business partners who have supported us throughout the years. In return, they will strive to give their customers the most innovative waterjet product accessible in the waterjet cutting industry. After 25 years, innovation is still in their veins and they are just getting started.
