L.B. Foster Automation & Materials Handling is a consolidation of L.B. Foster Europe's East Midlands-based Industrial Automation and Materials Handling businesses into a single, design, manufacturing and production ‘Centre of Excellence’ in Nottingham.

Both Industrial Automation and L.B. Foster Materials Handling have proven track records within their respective markets, delivering solid performance and strong reputations for innovation and quality.

With L.B. Foster Automation & Materials Handling we are strengthening further our position in these markets. We are drawing on shared resources, expertise and market intelligence and focusing facilities to deliver sector leading engineering solutions and a new East Midlands-based manufacturing powerhouse.

Centre of Excellence

Our Nottingham Automation & Materials Handling Centre of Excellence benefits from new, technology-led investment that will deliver increased capacity and exceptional manufacturing quality across our entire product portfolio – from overhead and floor conveyors to warehouse garment and handling solutions, as well as innovative machinery and automated production systems for the automotive, food and beverage, and logistics markets. We also see it as an ‘industry destination’ for discussions, training, seminars and events showcasing the best our sector has to offer.

L.B. Foster Company

L.B. Foster Automation & Materials Handling is part of $700m Pittsburgh-based, US engineering business L.B. Foster Company, which gives us a much bigger international picture. That's why it’s important to us and our employees that we remain locally focused, whilst enjoying and celebrating our status as part of a global group.

That gives us great in-territory market knowledge, underpinned by the reassurance of global capability. It’s the best of both worlds wrapped up in one for our customers benefit. So when we say we keep the world moving, that’s the world you and we know, as well as the wider world.
