Automation

As one of Britain’s leading providers of special purpose automated assembly, inspection and test systems, ABP Automation delivers complete solutions to customers across the UK and beyond.

That means we provide our customers with everything they need to launch a high yield, top quality production process – whether it’s a one-off machine or an entire enterprise-wide facility. From concept generation and feasibility studies, through to machine design, build and continuous in-service support, we eliminate the learning curve so you get the results you need. On time and on budget.

 

Making your life easier.

Our expertise in Special Purpose Automation spans a wide variety of critical market sectors, including the most demanding applications.

Of course, we know that when it comes to process automation, one size does not fit all. That’s why we custom-design and build our systems to suit your exact requirements cost-effectively. This also explains why we are not affiliated to any distributor or stockist, ensuring that we deliver the optimum solution for you – whatever that may be.
