"The $120,000 robot is a small price to pay for us to help Penn Tech be able to teach their students and potential future ELSNER employees,"  said Bert Elsner II, President/CEO of ELSNER.  "We have a need to hire people with experience on this very type of equipment and would be pleased to have those new-hires come from Penn Tech once they graduate."
