Current Vacancies

We are still enjoying a period of global growth as more and more factories are recognising the benefits factory automation can bring.  Additionally, our recent global partnership agreement with the international sensor solutions company, SICK AG, has led to a strong uptake in interest in our solutions, with substantial orders being taken not only in the UK, but also by our subsidiaries in Chicago and Melbourne.
