UK-based automation company RARUK Automation has been named Universal Robots’ Distributor of the Year. The prestigious award recognises the distributor that has achieved the largest growth and sales globally over the last year. Danish robotics manufacturer Universal Robots has a network of over 300 distributors worldwide. RARUK Automation has also been awarded Platinum Plus status.

RARUK Automation is a dedicated automation company that splintered off from long-standing engineering distributor R. A. Rodriguez (UK) Ltd. The business relationship between Universal Robots and RARUK began in 2010.

Today RARUK Automation represents Universal Robots and UR+ solutions in the UK, as well as autonomous mobile robots from MiR and other automation solutions including EffiMat™ automated warehouse storage and FlexiBowl® flexible part feeders.

The Universal Robots range of 6-axis robotic arms is designed to work safely alongside humans, due to intelligent safety sensors. This key factor makes Universal Robots more accessible and flexible than traditional solutions, which can be costly and require comprehensive guarding.

RARUK Automation has assisted businesses across the UK with their automation journey, no matter how big or small the application. Using Universal Robots and the large range of plug and play solutions available, RARUK Automation has helped customers boost the efficiency of tasks including palletising, sanding, machine tending, welding and dispensing.

In an age of labour shortages, companies tend to automate dull or dangerous tasks. This means that they can re-allocate staff to higher-value, safer tasks that do not pose the risk of repetitive strain injury.

RARUK Automation is proud to champion automation and robotics to the UK manufacturing industry and is pleased that the Universal Robots range has found such success across the sector.

We are extremely proud to achieve this award and the Platinum Plus status. It is testament to the hard work that the whole RARUK Automation team put in.’ Says Darren Reynolds, Managing Director of RARUK Holdings. ‘We will continue to provide collaborative automation to businesses long into the future.’

‘Universal Robots is delighted to honour RARUK Automation with the Distributor of the Year award.’ Says Mark Gray, UK & Ireland Country Manager for Universal Robots.  ‘This award marks all of the hard work carried out for the previous year and the continued investment in growth from one of our key partners.’

Mark Gray concludes: ‘RARUK Automation has shown the dedication and vision to bring collaborative automation to businesses of all sizes and offer training to the next generation of engineers.’
