In response to the UK's increasing investment in automation, Danish automation company Universal Robots has added a fourth UK distributor to its network: Kent-based Geku Automation.

"We are seeing signs in the UK of increased interest in investing in technology as the manufacturing sector slowly eases out of recession so we have now put in place a comprehensive distributor network to enable us to cope with increased demand and capitalise on market opportunities,"​ said Kristian Hulgard, UK and Nordic sales manager.

"A collaborative robot that doesn't require any special training to program and can be managed by existing technical staff and workers rather than expensive consultants is going to be a winner,"​ says Geku Automation's joint md Nigel Richardson. "The addition of the Universal Robot range to our portfolio will open up new sectors and application areas where more traditional industrial robots would or could not be considered."
