Andrew Robinson, Managing Director of Autotech, takes up the story: “We are delighted to have secured this contract, which is the largest single order we have ever received. Along with major projects currently underway for a variety of other clients, this order means that we’re looking to recruit a number of skilled people including system designers, software engineers, project managers and site personnel.”
Tata Motors, the Indian group that purchased Jaguar Land Rover in 2008 is reportedly committed to investing £5 billion in product development.
Autotech, will be working with the UK subsidiary of the Dutch-owned production automation supplier, VDL Steelweld. It is currently working on other projects for Jaguar Land Rover, including computer simulation of robotic work cells, controls for overhead electric monorail conveyor systems, various floor conveyor systems, robotic glazing systems and vehicle painting facilities – as well as having recently delivered the complete body shop controls for the new Jaguar XJ at the Castle Bromwich plant in Birmingham.
Established by Robinson in 1996, Autotech has worked with many automative manufacturers as well as being involved in the logistics, airport, food & beverage and manufacturing sectors.
