Product Manager - Welding
After spending over a decade as a Product and Brand Manager for tools and test equipment lines, in 2017 Josh Leath joined one of the world’s largest robotic companies as Product Manager for Welding Robots at Yaskawa Motoman. His development approach targets input from actual robot end users to create a better solution. Josh’s extensive work with these Voice of Customer efforts has transformed in how the organization captures and utilizes customer feedback. This customer feedback then continues to breed solutions to ensure customers are equipped with the tools and knowledge they need to be successful, as well as how Yaskawa and partner companies respond to customers needs. His experience with a variety of different customers and projects helps distill mutual robotic workcell challenges that can be forged into new products, or share that wisdom with other automation customers to drive the most value out of their equipment.
