ICERT and Cobotics Skillnet has been instrumental in helping us to drive forward with the introduction of Robotics, Collaborative Robots and Automation n our operations. It has given us an opportunity to meet with a number of people from different industries who are on the same journey. Allowing meaningful discussions on the path forward, and learning from each other the potential pitfalls along the way. Having the opportunity to visit each other’s sites and see the technologies in action is always a great learning experience, without the ICERT and Cobotics Skillnet I do not think this could happen.

Just a quick note to thank you and the rest of the team in ICERT and Cobotics Skillnet for your continued support in developing our understanding and knowledge in Robotics/Cobotics and Automation. Our goal in getting involved in ICERT and Cobotics Skillnet has been to better understand what this evolving technology can offer and also how it will impact our business over the coming years. Our involvement with ICERT and Cobotics Skillnet and the continued in-company site visits have been both very informative and engaging and we hope that these will continue.
It is clear from each of the site visits that all participants are committed to ensure the best possible outcome. They continue to surpass our expectations. Also I have to say that the financial support that the Skillnet has afforded Trend has been very welcome and has helped significantly in developing our in house expertise and in due course will enhance our technical expertise and ultimately our competitiveness

Becoming a member of ICERT and Cobotics Skillnet afforded me the opportunity to network with like-minded people across a range of industries and disciplines. The benefits acquired from this collaboration and sharing of knowledge and experience has tremendously accelerated Integers understanding of how Robotics and Automation can enable us to remain relevant in today’s global marketplace. As Charles Darwin said more than 150 years ago “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change, that lives within the means available and works co-operatively against common threats”.
