About us

L-A-C Logistics Automation is a global engineering service provider specialising in designing, manufacturing, developing, and delivering automated and intelligent software solutions that address disruption, optimise performance, and ultimately increase profitability.

Based in Nottingham, we occupy five units totalling at 70,000 Sq. Ft where all our operations take place. This allows us to maintain a strict separation between manufacturing processes and build activities to prevent cross contamination of materials.

A Leading Industrial & Manufacturing Company Serving Since 1997.

In 1997 Carl Unwin & Sons started the production of modular conveyors from their home garage. A combination of passion for technology, successful installations and repeat business through the building of valuable customer relationships, driven from the focus of “clearly understanding our customer’s needs” saw rapid growth and the need to expand. The following years were spent building the business and developing our product range with the aim of supplying “the complete automation package”. This passion to learn, grow and reinvest in our employees and future technologies enabled L-A-C to naturally gain a foothold in our core industries of Logistics, Manufacturing, Food & Beverage and Bespoke Automation.
