About the company
ST Robotics was formed in 1989 by David Sands (center picture) after 4 years of development along with Catherine George (3rd from right) of low cost bench top robots for professional applications.
Our mission: ST aims to provide robots that are easy to set up and use, easily programmed by any individual regardless of experience. We provide unlimited support all through the learning experience. We equally aim to provide a low cost solution to experienced users for a diverse range of advanced and complex tasks.
Our reputation is one of unconditional customer support, flexibility, and products of quality and total reliability.
Here are just a few comments from customers:
Robotics Within Reach is a maxim thought up by a past colleague Simon Crowhurst (3rd from left in picture) in around 1989. It encompasses 3 concepts, within reach technically (easy to use), within reach financially (affordable) and reach (distance) as it applies to an arm.
ST Robotics is a trading name for associated companies in USA, UK, Russia and Sri Lanka.
The company was formed in 1985 with the objective of producing low cost "bench top robots".

All robots are made in the UK apart from Cartesian systems made in Sri Lanka.
ST Robotics is the ONLY manufacturer of robot arms in the UK. If you search for this you will find a number of companies but none of them actually makes robot arms. They are integrators or resellers of imported robots.
