CONCORD, NC Shawn Campion, president of Integro Technologies, was a recipient of the “Emerging Leader” award at the Charlotte Business Journal’s third annual Advanced Manufacturing Awards in Concord.

The Advanced Manufacturing Awards recognize innovation in manufacturing in the Charlotte region, and a panel of outside experts evaluated nominations for the awards and chose the best representatives.

Campion was recognized as an emerging leader and a innovator in advanced manufacturing and the community in which his business operates.

He leads a team of design engineers, applications engineers, mechanical engineers and field engineers to solve the most complex and intricate quality control problems facing manufacturers today. Utilizing machine vision integration, experience, expertise, as well as creativity and innovation, Campion and his team have designed and developed solutions for leaders in industries such as the military, food and beverage, automotive, aerospace, consumer products and more.

Under Campion’s leadership, Integro Technologies has grown from three employees to 36 employees since he joined the company in 2004. He has also lead the international certification of Integro Technologies as an AIA Certified Integrator (Integro is one of eight in the world).

In 2011, 2012 and 2013, Integro Technologies was named a System Integrator Giant by Control Engineering Magazine. In 2013, the Charlotte Business Journal named Integro Technologies as one of its Fast 50. And in the past two years, Integro Technologies has seen tremendous recognition as an industry-influencer in North Carolina and beyond.

In 2013, Campion spearheaded the expansion of Integro Technologies and had a vision beyond that of just physical space. Rather than relocating Integro Technologies to an industrial park or a prebuilt factory building, Integro Technologies invested $3.5 million to build a 42,000 square-foot building, known as the Salisbury Business Center, in the heart of downtown Salisbury, N.C.
