A bright future in warehouse automation

L-A-C Logistics Automation is proud to be recognised as a leading systems integrator, designing and installing conveyor and automation solutions for nearly three decades. From humble beginnings producing standalone modular conveyors, L-A-C’s founders embraced their passion for technology,
successful installations and a focus on clearly understanding customer needs, to facilitate rapid growth and expansion, to now offer an impressive portfolio of automated technologies, including Automated Mobile Robots and Robot Palletising solutions.

LAC Expansion, Recruitment & Acquisition

Today L-A-C operates from its 70,000 ft2, Nottingham facility and after an extremely successful recruitment drive to bring in top industry talent, now employs over 150 multi-skilled automation specialists adding their valuable experience, expertise, and dedication into crafting the best fit, profitable, sustainable, and future proof technology solutions for our customers.

Our extensive industry experience enables us to design, manufacture and implement tailored solutions for unique challenges and share best-in-class strategies across diverse markets. This sustained growth through successful customer projects combined with our recruitment success has attracted significant attention and brought about L-A-C’s recent acquisition by MotionTech to become an integral part of their growing portfolio of industry-leading engineering and automation companies across Europe.

"Joining MotionTech is a thrilling development for L-A-C. This move is in line with our core values of engineering excellence, innovation and adventure." said Chris Unwin, CEO of L-A-C Logistics Automation. "This partnership will broaden our horizon with focus on accelerating our European expansion and allows us to continue offering top-notch solutions to our clients as we have always
strived to do."

L-A-C’s recent acquisition by MotionTech gives our company a robust platform for accelerated expansion across Europe with some of our key customers, fully supported by MotionTech’s focus on strong, aspirational businesses with the potential for significant growth. The MotionTech group of companies also allows us to build strategic partnerships with other members to further enhance our design capabilities and technology portfolio.

Following the acquisition it’s business as usual. Our core expertise remains in our ability to create and implement bespoke, fully integrated solutions that transform customer operations, using a wide range of automation technologies that deliver the efficiency, sustainability and agility required to overcome industry challenges and support their long-term growth objectives.

future of warehouse automation

The growing level of investment we are seeing for automated technologies is a direct response to industry challenges and the need to remain efficient, competitive and agile whilst reducing costs. This wave of automation deployment is fully supported by our ambitious growth plans to bring innovative technology to the SME market in the UK and across Europe.


Joe Metcalf, Sales Director at L-A-C Logistics Automation commented, “We are halfway through the year and have a strong order book already, with major accounts in Post & Parcel, 3PL and Retail, and we are looking at a strong pipeline for ASRS solutions. Our growth plans are focused on further investment in our people as we continue to aggressively grow our talented team. Our re-engineered standard conveyor range is developing fast, and we are looking to release more standard machinery later this year to target equipment handling applications. Our software deployments are also increasing this year as we look to broaden our offering to include additional standard features to target zone picking, put-to-light and goods-to-person applications.”
