EBS Automation announces trebling of workforce

A Llanelli company that designs, manufactures and installs bespoke automation and robotic systems for a range of industry sectors is trebling the size of its workforce.

The investment by EBS Automation, which will see the workforce increase from 16 to 50 over the next five years, is being supported by £113,000 from the Welsh government’s Economic Growth Fund.

It is investing £250,000 in its facilities in Parc Dafen to increase capacity to meet rapidly expanding order books filled with a pipeline of projects worth around £3m.

It will enable EBS to expand its manufacturing unit and equipment, build a mezzanine floor to re-house the design teams and install new computer hardware and 3D CAD systems.
