"The Voice of Automation"

BARA (British Automation and Robot Association) provides a voice for the Robot and Automation Industries, when dealing with government, industry, financial and academic institutions.

The aim of the BARA is to promote the use of, and assist in the development of Industrial Robots and Automation in British industry. In 2009 BARA joined forces with the PPMA (Processing & Packaging Machinery Association) to become a special interest focus group and has gathered more influence, members and provide more support to the end-user community.

Mike Wilson, BARA president speaks to the BBC to comment on Theresa May's pledge to invest £2bn a year in an effort to boost the technology industry and improve UK's competitiveness in the global arena.
