Transitioning to normal

Like many other companies around the world, Labman is beginning to return to normal working conditions following the COVID-19 lockdown. We are fully operational again, and the majority of our staff are now working at our HQ. We have all the necessary facilities in place to permit social distancing at work. We would like to express our thanks for your patience during this unprecedented time.


If you are planning to visit Labman soon for any reason, please contact us directly for information about the required procedures for safe working. We look forward to seeing you soon.


Still at home?

If you're still stuck at home, we've devised some ways in which you can help, or just keep busy, especially if you have kids.

We want you to design and build your own world changing robots, give them a name, and send us some pictures. The more creative the better, there are no rules except - no toilet paper! Anyone can join in, any age, and remember to have some fun.


Your creations will be added to our wall of fame below. Please feel free to share these in whatever way you want to. (Only send pictures that you are happy for us to share in this way!).

How to get involved

Once you have built your world changing robot, simply take a picture of it and email it along with your first name, age, your nearest city location and the robot's name, to [email protected] Alternatively, post your pictures to your Facebook page and tag us @LabmanAutomation. Look out for your pictures on our Wall of Fame below!
