Glide-Line is a game-changing brand and product line developed from the ground up by NCC Automated Systems, a 34-year-old leader in several industries related to automation and conveyor systems.

We designed this product and business unit with deliberate attention to speed, versatility and eliminating barriers.  Our tagline is:  Fast. Flexible. Easy.  We do things that nobody in our class does, we do it with greater speed, efficiency, and make it a great customer experience. 

Glide-Line runs as a small business unit with a dedicated staff.  This allows for agility and focus, but with the support of a larger company due to operating within the NCC Automated Systems umbrella.  NCC overall is approx. $30mm with 75 employees.

The Glide-Line brand was started in 2014 and we have supported the Assembly Automation market primarily through “configured product” sales to integrators doing assembly line integration.  This market is supported through independent sales reps throughout North America, with a few direct accounts. 

We seek to maximize that market, as well as find and penetrate new markets.   Our innovation, flexibility and speed have helped us grow our business from zero to where it is today, but we need to keep our eye on future growth. 


From a cultural perspective, the parent company, NCC Automated Systems, is an extremely unique company.  First, we are driven by the 4 following core values:

  1. It takes a Village – we are here for each other
  2. We are Warriors – we fight until we make it happen
  3. Life is Short – we choose to have a positive attitude and have fun
  4. We are Brave – we try new things and strive to be great

People that fit those core values love working at NCC (recently selected as one of The Philadelphia Inquirers Top Businesses to work) and the culture is truly unmatched.

I’m proud to work for a company full of people who actually care. We don’t just come to work and put our 9 to 5 in and go home, leaving work at the door as we get in our cars.  I think we take it home and think about it in a positive way, always wanting to improve it and make it better. I believe it’s because we have a leader who really and truly cares.
