Fully automated and futureproof: why automation is the way forward

Posted by Summer Bramall on Aug 5, 2020 1:05:44 PM

Automation is an ideal solution for today’s labour shortages. The effects of Brexit, and now Covid-19, have meant that temporary workers who are often from outside the UK, are in short supply.

This poses a problem for an industry which relies heavily on foreign labour. Instead, an automated production line not only requires less pairs of hands to run, but also is more efficient than manual production lines.

The onset on Covid-19 also brought on waves of panic buying, where consumers bought more products than they normally would in order to stockpile supplies. This placed a strain on a lot of businesses, as they struggled to meet this sudden new demand. Automating production offers the possibility to increase or decrease production speeds at will to suit fluctuating consumer demand.
