WHAT THEY SAY

SECTION MANAGER

"Really informative presentations, the lack of adoption of robots to date is startling, and I think this is set to change with the rising costs associated with the living wage"

DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

"Great new ideas! We have had success automating parts of our processes but robotics presents opportunities for transformational changes in our manufacturing systems"

MANAGING DIRECTOR

"Whilst it's early days for Robotics in UK food manufacturing, the opportunity is immense. The launch of OAL’s APRIL system could well prove to be one of the major milestones in the development of the food industry."
