REECO-BANNER 300617Reeco Automation Ltd are the UK’s leading human-robotic collaborative integration company who supply customers with automation systems solutions. 

The Caersws-based firm ‘bridge the gap’ between machine and end-user using HRC robots to save time and reduce production costs for a customer base that extends across many industry sectors.

Managing Director Llewelyn Rees established Reeco in August 2016, having developed a passion for collaborative robots during his time working with industrial robots for many years. Since their formation the company has demonstrated rapid growth, securing key accounts with major companies including BMW. A success that can be put down to talent, expertise and staying ahead of the competition.

Marketing Manager Jessica Watts explains;

“We are the only company in the UK who do what we do, which is to integrate human-collaborative robots with current systems and equipment, which has given us an edge over our competition. We complement human skills and capabilities by ‘integrating’ the robots to work effectively with humans – man and machine working together.

“It is critical to integrate the robot so that it does what the customer needs it to do. At Reeco our team of engineers and developers programme the robots and build attachments according to customer needs, it’s an approach that has served us well so far.”

It is also an approach that has secured customers with some of the world’s leading companies, including German car manufacturers BMW. Jessica continues;

“We’re very excited about our relationship with BMW. We met them at a trade show less than a year ago shortly after launch. Since then we’ve completed one installation, and now working on a second one, with a third due for completion before the end of the year. 

“We’re also delighted to have recently become an official system partner with KUKA, one of the world’s leading suppliers of robotics. There are many significant benefits to the partnership, one of which is that it gives our potential customers reassurance that, even though we are a young company, we are a reliable and quality organisation.”

Reeco have ambitious plans to build on their initial success; developing new attachments and new technologies to grow key accounts and attract new customers – all from their mid Wales base.

“At the moment we don’t actually have any customers in Wales, but we’re delighted to be based here. We’ve noticed that there is a real spirit of collaboration with the technology industry in Wales, there are a lot of fellow businesses and organisations such as the ESTnet, who are eager to support us, it’s really apparent and good to see.”
