ABB Robotics UK adds The Automated Technology Group to its Authorised Value Provider network

The Automated Technology Group becomes the latest addition to ABB Robotics’ expanding Authorised Value Provider network.

The Automated Technology Group uses ABB RobotStudio as a key part of its ‘Virtual Commissioning’ tool. Milton Keynes, 10 June, 2016: Industrial automation specialist, The Automated Technology Group, has become the latest company to be signed up to ABB Robotics UK's Authorised Value Provider (AVP) network. As an independent supplier of control and power solutions for industrial automation, The Automated Technology Group provides bespoke solutions ranging from simple, small-scale systems to large and complex multi-platform solutions.


As a member of ABB Robotics' previous channel partner network, The Automated Technology Group has worked with ABB to deliver many successful projects over the years for a range of world-renowned companies, including Jaguar Land Rover. As an Authorised Value Provider, The Automated Technology Group has proven its ability to offer expert robot application and process knowledge, a clear local and global ABB product offering, strong local market presence and industry-specific experience. AVP status also denotes that The Automated Technology Group's staff are fully-trained on ABB products, enabling them to offer the same high quality service support as customers could expect if dealing with ABB directly.

For The Automated Technology Group, benefits of becoming an AVP include tailored technical, application, service, sales and marketing support from ABB, coupled with free access to ABB Robotics UK's Milton Keynes training centre and demonstration facilities. Moreover, as an AVP, The Automated Technology Group also receives an application-specific RobotStudio licence for up to a year, enabling it to use the software to design, simulate and test a robotic installation in an offline environment.

"ABB RobotStudio is a key part of our ‘Virtual Commissioning' tool set that enables us to prove PLC and Robot programs up front, reducing risk and ‘time to market for our customers," says Edwin Derry, Simulation & Robotics Manager at The Automated Technology Group.

Achieving ABB Authorised Value Provider status is the latest development in a history dating back to the early 1900s, which has seen The Automated Technology Group acquiring vast experience in the design, supply and servicing of solutions for the power, automation and process sectors.

"We are proud to be able to share ABB's expert knowledge and robotics expertise and are very excited about the additional benefits that becoming an ABB AVP will offer our existing and future clients. Over the last 5 years we have successfully integrated almost 1,000 ABB robots," adds Edwin Derry.

The addition of The Automated Technology Group to the Authorised Value Provider network is part of a continuing strategy by ABB Robotics to increase the uptake of industrial robots in the UK manufacturing sector by making it easier for SMEs in particular to get access to quality robotic solutions and expertise.

"We have long experience of creating mutually beneficial relationships with specialist companies to offer customers ready access to quality solutions developed to their specific needs," says Mike Wilson, General Industry Sales and Marketing Manager for ABB Robotics UK and Ireland. "Signing up companies such as The Automated Technology Group means we can confidently expand our reach into the marketplace, safe in the knowledge that they can offer the same high quality solutions and support as customers expect from ABB itself."
