Third consecutive UR Platinum Partner award.


Leading collaborative robot (cobot) distributor RARUK Automation Limited has been named a Universal Robots Platinum Partner for 2023, achieving the status for the third year running.

Universal Robots offers a range of highly popular 6 axis robotic arms, known for their ability to operate safely alongside human workers due to intelligent sensors. Collaborative robots are typically used to automate monotonous applications, freeing workers for higher value tasks and combatting labour shortages.

Each year, a select group of Universal Robots’ worldwide distributors are awarded Platinum Partner status due to achievements in sales and for meeting exacting standards in technical support to their customers. RARUK Automation has retained its Platinum Partner status for the third year in a row. The Bedfordshire-based distributor offers off-the-shelf solutions for Universal Robots cobots including sanding and polishing, screwdriving, machine tending, palletising and dispensing.

Where a more complex automation solution is required, RARUK Automation also works with a network of specialist integrators to provide high quality bespoke turnkey projects to its customers.

The RARUK Automation team was presented with their Platinum Partner award at the new Universal Robots UK Headquarters in Sheffield by Mark Gray, the UK and Ireland Sales Manager for Universal Robots.

“As labour and skills shortages continue to be a challenge for UK manufacturers, working with Universal Robots has allowed us to identify the needs of our customers and help them overcome their challenges.  We are one of a small group of distributors worldwide to have achieved this award. Our success is very much down to the hard work and dedication of our team and support from integration partners, Universal Robots and our UR+ partners.” – Peter Williamson, Managing Director of RARUK Automation.
