In 2016 we brought together our materials handling and industrial automation businesses as L.B. Foster Automation & Materials Handling.

We also opened our new ‘Automation & Materials Handling Centre of Excellence’ in Nottingham, showcasing our capability and capacity in automation and materials handling solutions for the buoyant automotive, food and beverage and logistics markets.

Dr Martyn Paradise, Head of, L.B. Foster Automation & Materials Handling, says: “We’re feeding in to global supply chains, designing, building and installing smart, automated manufacturing technologies that are mission critical to our customers. So our solutions have to be fail-safe, which is why we undergo rigorous factory and field testing to ensure right first time installation and commissioning.”

Customer satisfaction

We deliver intelligent, integrated materials handling and automated production line solutions for a wide range of market leading brands. This demonstrates how our materials handling and industrial automation capability deliver an ‘all under one roof’ solution.
