Sponsor Spotlights – Global Robots
The next sponsor I’m shining a light on is Global Robots! They were the title sponsor of the team this year and have been supporting me for a long time. Based in the UK, they are a leading supplier of industrial robots, spare parts, service and advice.
Working with clients around the world, they offer machines for printing, painting, assembly, CAD/CAM, milling and trimming, polishing and every other robotic application! You can check out more about them on their website.
Andy Kirkwood – Global Robots Ltd.
Who are Global Robots Ltd.?
Based in Bedfordshire, we’re a global provider of affordable industrial robots and spare parts. We work with a huge range of clients, and we sell robotic products from leading manufacturers, including ABB, Kuka and Kawasaki. We also provide full servicing as well as spare parts.
How did you first meet Pete?
I’m an ex-racer myself and have competed at the North West, so I’ve had a passion for racing for a long time. While I was racing, I started Global Robots Ltd., and as we grew, we were in a position to begin sponsoring some riders and Pete was among the first that we supported. I first met Pete through his Dad, who I used to work with as mechanic, so I’d watched him come through the ranks.
Watching him that first compete at the TT, his talent was clear to see and since then his career has gone from strength to strength and it’s been fantastic to be a part of it and see the success he has had.
For 2020, we were also able to support the Smiths Racing team, which complemented our off-track involvement with Smiths themselves as we helped them to automate their waste recycling production lines.
What’s your favourite race to attend?
The road races are always a lot of fun to attend, while at BSB, I would say Silverstone as we usually take a full hospitality table for our team! Assen is also a lot of fun and gives us a chance to meet our sister company in the Netherlands.
What’s been your highlight sponsoring Pete?
There are so many memories both on and off-track that it is hard to pick just one! I would have to say seeing him claim that first Isle of Man TT win is up there amongst the very best – as have all of his subsequent wins!
