Bauromat were pleased to welcome House of Lords Member and chairman of the Made in the Midlands group Lord Mike Whitby to its factory last week.
Discussing all things robotics & automation with the team, Bauromat were eager to continue to push the message of positivity around not only manufacturing in the UK, but the automation as a whole.
“It’s something we talk about everyday here” said Managing Director John D’Angelillo
“The only way for automation in the UK to catch up with the rest of the world is to be positive and continue to promote it.
“Having someone like Lord Mike Whitby visit us gives us that exact opportunity, and we hope it’s a message that he’ll carry with him to Parliament.”
During the visit Lord Whitby also gave a speech the entire Bauromat staff emphasising the importance of manufacturing to the British economy and discussing how companies like Bauromat are at the forefront of new technologies.
It was also touched on that despite manufacturing being considered to make up around 10% of GVA (Gross Value Added), Lord Whitby believes it to be more. This would allow governments to get a better idea of how important manufacturing is to the UK.
The visit was concluded with a tour of the shop floor, allowing Lord Whitby to get a first-hand look at the technologies Bauromat provides. Together with Bauromat’s Technical Director Paul Tilley, Sales Director Jason Aulton and Operations Manager David Samuel, Lord Whitby was talked through a range of Bauromat’s latest robotic projects.
Bauromat would like to thank Lord Mike Whitby and Made in the Midlands for taking their time to visit us, giving the company a platform to continue to promote automation in a positive light.
