The article distinguished Efficiency Manufacturing Group (EMG) and its sister company Specialty Machinery & Equipment (SME) as a local business serving with eighteen years of experience.

The article was a full page piece that listed some examples of EMG-SME’s work and focused on a current job for a local company. It explained EMG-SME’s current work for the local business as a robotic system for an area industry to palletize automotive equipment for shipping. Basically the system included boxes in which people handled weighing fifty pounds that can now be replaced by the robotic system, which also eliminates the possibility of injuries that people can suffer from repetitive work.
Photos that were published in the article were two large size pictures and one small picture. The large pictures featured David Phillips, a machine builder at EMG-SME, installing a stack light on the automatic palletizing system. The other large picture showed Plant manager, Skipper Rose in a full picture of the automatic palletizing system. The small picture was also of Rose checking electrical components in the system.
The Jonesboro Sun overviewed EMG-SME as a company willing to work with companies on almost any problem, such as innovative designs for material handling, bar-code scanning, pick-and-place systems such as the automatic palletizing system, and many other kinds of automation and robotics. Curt Hodges, the writer for the story, quoted owner and President, Chris Childers with “I like to think that we are a small company that do big things”. “Anyone who needs a solution to a manufacturing problem is a potential customer”. He further quoted Mr. Childers “The only thing that we have is innovation. I consider us to be solution providers. Of the things we do, 80 to 85% is custom”.
The Jonesboro Sun’s article concluded by listing some of EMG-SME customers from local businesses as Remington Arms to customers all over the United States, Puerto Rico and Mexico. For more information on EMG-SME, please contact Chris Childers at 870-931-
