Furthermore Jeff Nowill said of the partnership:
“The combination of the AFRC’s thought leadership and KUKA’s industrial robots and automation solutions, as a means to developing sustainable manufacturing solutions is an inspiring prospect.
Whilst we are interested in looking at innovative collaboration with the AFRC on a per se basis to our advantage within the United Kingdom and abroad; the Glasgow-base is also of geographical interested to us. The KUKA Group bases its 400+ UK-based employees in four locations in Greater Birmingham, and part of our commitment to be a lithe, decentralised modern business, operating close to our customers, Scotland is of huge interest to us. In late 2016, we opened a facility in Dundalk to service the Irish market; and now we are – and have been for some time – looking at our proposition north of the border to service our Scottish customers with a local office and staff. A permanent presence at the AFRC is an important stepping-stone in that journey”.
The partnership between the AFRC and KUKA, further cements KUKA’s position as one of the UK’s leading suppliers of automated robotic technology and supplier of choice to no less than four catapult centres across the UK.
