Serving the Automation Industry Since 1986
Flotronics, Inc. was founded in 1986 by Lloyd Schmaltz to better serve the automation industry with top-of-the-line in-class service and high-quality automation equipment. After serving three years in the U.S. Navy, Lloyd began his career at ROSS Valve. He traveled to the many distributors in the U.S. to train their employees and find new and innovative applications. Interested in establishing a distributorship in the Detroit area, Lloyd began his search for lines to represent. Flotronics Automation continues to be a family company with Stephen Schmaltz & Mike Schmaltz carrying the torch.
Expanding to 25+ Manufacturers & Thousands of Customers
After establishing a name for Flotronics, Inc. in the Detroit market, the premier U.S. valve manufacturer, NUMATICS, signed an agreement with Flotronics, Inc. to assume the marketing of these valves in the Southeast Michigan market. German and Japanese companies anxious to get into the U.S. market, like Herion and SMC, were initially represented along with several other U.S. device manufacturers. From humble beginnings, Lloyd has grown Flotronics, Inc. from a few major lines to 25+ manufacturers and thousands of loyal customers, servicing all of Michigan and its surrounding areas.
