GB Innomech joins ABB partner network to deliver robot-based automation to a range of fast-growing markets

GB Innomech (Innomech) is a Cambridgeshire-based engineering consultancy specialising in the automation of complex, hazardous or labour-intensive manufacturing and quality control processes in a range of markets including: pharmaceuticals, medical devices, automotive and food.

Innomech is one of the latest companies to participate in the ABB Global Partner Program and is now equipped to extend its offer to include more robot-based automation. The partnership will see both companies working together on projects to utilise ABB's extensive range of robotic solutions. In addition, Innomech will be provided with sales, marketing, technical, application and service support as well as software training for all employees.



Alan Spreckley, channel partner manager for ABB's robotics business comments, "Innomech is well-established and has a proven track record of success in major international markets such as pharmaceuticals and medical devices. By working closely together we can ensure that their customers get the most suitable robotic solutions for their needs, and provide the company with the opportunities to develop and expand its own brand, as well as help in further penetrating new markets."

Tim Mead, commercial director at Innomech comments, "ABB Robotics is one of the world's leading suppliers of high performance industrial robots, we are delighted to have joined this partnership and have already begun to see the positive results. The UK demand for flexible, more automated and lower cost manufacturing is growing rapidly and we are increasingly being asked, even by smaller manufacturing companies, if we can develop robot-based systems that can help them remain cost competitive in a global economy.

"More and more companies are looking for automation systems that can be quickly and easily reprogrammed to handle short production runs and multiple products, while at the same time driving up quality and reducing manufacturing cost."

ABB's Global Partner Program is structured to enable further business opportunities between ABB partners providing global possibilities for business ventures.
