Kensal Handling Systems Signs Kuka Partnership Agreement

Kensal Handling Systems, renowned manufacturers of high quality stainless steel conveying systems, is the first UK company to enter into a Systems Partner Agreement with KUKA Robotics UK Ltd, Europe's leading robot manufacturer. The agreement allows the Kensal sales and design teams to integrate the latest world class robotic technologies into their conveying systems, delivering enhanced productivity, process improvements and additional cost effectiveness for new and existing clients.

Kensal Handling Systems, based in Luton, has been designing and manufacturing stainless steel conveyors for the past 40 years, supplying a wide variety of high volume production lines to the UK food and drinks market. The depth of experience offered by the Kensal team means that the company has built a strong reputation for developing state-of-the-art solutions. Their tried and tested expertise, market experience and commitment to innovation are just three of the reasons why Kensal was chosen by KUKA to join the Partnership Agreement.

Tony Southwood, Director for Kensal, said, "Each KUKA Systems Partner company is selected according to stringent criteria, including technical expertise and industry experience, to ensure their products, technical knowledge and business philosophies match KUKA's high standards. This agreement reaffirms Kensal's excellent reputation as high quality manufacturers and experienced integrators of whole system solutions. We look forward to working closely with our new partners and the first major orders for palletising robots will be released soon."

Tony Dowling, Robot Sales Specialist at KUKA Robotics UK Ltd, commented, "We are very pleased to have Kensal Handling Systems on board. At KUKA, we are extremely proud of our long-standing reputation for delivering flexible, value-engineered solutions and, working closely with our Systems Partners, look forward to enhancing awareness of the cost-effectiveness of robotic solutions when integrated within high volume production lines."
