About Detect-It

Detect-It™ is bringing manufacturing quality systems into the 21st century. Its AI vision system automates surface inspections with high precision; forces 100% process compliance at the individual product assembly station; and is architected for easy configuration to meet any manufacturer’s specific requirements. And its software platform is hardware agnostic and works with most available cameras currently used in production facilities.

The company’s team has nearly a century of expertise in automotive engineering and development. Founded in 2020, Detect-It released its first product, Detect-It Net Builder, in June 2021 and launched its initial pilot installation at a Tier 1 automotive supplier in 3Q 2021.

It has been our pleasure to work with Bob Honeyman and Nancy Benovich Gilby along our startup journey. Their deep experience, and more importantly their personal delivery, demonstrates how they really care about us. Based upon the clear preparation and data they provide for every meeting, we think of them as part of the Detect-It team, which is something I am truly thankful for. Many thanks to them and the SBDC for hiring candidates of their caliber!Kevin Kerwin, President and CEO, Detect-It
