The Manufacturer Top 100 - Inspiring Leader
Jason Barker Founder and Chief Technical Officer of CNC Robotics Ltd joins The Manufacturer’s Top 100
This year we celebrated The Manufacturer’s Top 100 as part of Digital Manufacturing Week. The Top 100 is now in its 5th year. We are proud to have a community of 500 members celebrating the dynamic leaders and innovators of manufacturing, and offering much needed role models to us all.
This year Jason Barker, Founder and Chief Technical Officer of CNC Robotics, joined the community, acknowledging the role he has played (and will continue to play) as one of UK manufacturing’s unsung heroes.
“Jason established CNC Robotics in 2010 after spotting a niche in the market, during his search for a machining solution to aid his theatrical set building company. He recognised the potential for using robots as milling machines, and soon realised that many other sectors could be transformed with the introduction of robots. This combination of vision and innovation has resulted in Jason transforming the productivity and performance of many companies. His determination to find solutions to the most challenging of manufacturing machining problems makes him a leader in this field and an inspiration to his team. The demand for his skills is now worldwide, with year upon year growth in both domestic and international sales.” The Manufacturer Top 100 2018
Founded by husband-and-wife partnership Jason and Madina Barker, CNC Robotics was born out of a shared passion for robotic and automation solutions.
“We started our set-building business in 2004 working on all aspects of scenic construction and model-making, having built almost every kind of prop for our clients. To set ourselves apart from the competition, in 2008 we developed a bespoke CNC robotic milling system to allow us to create props of scale, with intricate detail, to a quick turnaround. This tool meant that we could deliver significantly cheaper, in less time and still with a high degree of accuracy.” Jason Barker Founder and Chief Technical Officer of CNC Robotics,
The company’s unique mix of R&D, passion for innovation and team expertise makes it the market leader in providing tailored, cost-effective solutions regardless of sector.
The pace of change is accelerating and the automation age is here; robotics are significantly and positively changing the way we work and live. The future success across all industries will be defined by the ability of firms to adapt their infrastructure and exploit these technologies.
