Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor visit to CNC Robotics facility in Aintree to announce the release of £75m Business Growth Package

Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram today announced the release of a £75m business growth package whilst visiting CNC Robotics Ltd based in Aintree.

CNC Robotics, recently named as one of Liverpool City Regions LCR Tech Climbers 2019, which celebrates the fastest-growing and most innovative tech scale-ups in Liverpool City Region.

Madina Barker, Director at CNC Robotics welcomed the announcement of the £65m Business Growth Package and was especially pleased to hear about the support designed to ensure the availability of skilled members of staff.

“We are excited about the package of support on offer which will be welcomed by the city’s businesses and will enable a positive drive in productivity and jobs across the region. Up-skilling the regions workforce has never been more important to give businesses a competitive edge as we contend in an ever-global market.

As a scale-up business the availability of skilled engineers is vital in order for our business and many other businesses within the region to grow”.

Speaking about the Business Growth Package, Jason Barker, Founder of CNC Robotics said “As an SME within a high growth sector, we have found it challenging to employ skilled engineers within the region. As part of our commitment and passion for robotics and automation we have set up our own skills academy”

Aimed at bridging the skills gap in advanced manufacturing, CNC Robotics have partnered with The City of Liverpool College to deliver an EAL Level 3 qualification in Robotics and Automation.

As innovation and automation increases, rather than replacing people with machines resulting in unemployment, it’s hoped the new course will allow employers to up-skill their existing workforce to meet the changing demands of the industry, creating new, highly skilled roles.

The flexible course will allow learners to choose units of the qualification that work for them or complete the full qualification in order to gain an EAL accredited Level 3 certificate.

Madina Barker, director at Aintree-based CNC Robotics, added: “Robotic technology is significantly and positively changing the way we work and live, the future success across all industries will be defined by the ability of UK firms to adapt their infrastructure and exploit related technologies.
