Technical Support Director
Étienne Samson joined Robotiq in 2011 as an intern after completing a bachelor degree in physics engineering. He began as an assembler, readying the company for its first line of 10 Grippers, putting together documentation and doing bench tests. His internship turned into a full time job, where he has moved from building products to being production engineer and from working in R&D to his current role as technical support director. As one of Robotiq's very first employees, he's keen to share many stories on how collaborative robots deployment has improved through the years, and how deployment cycle can be even shorter with the lean robotics methodology.
