Northampton: Warehouse uses robots to help staff shortage
A business said it was using robots in its warehouses to help overcome staffing problems.
Active Ants UK, on the Brackmills Industrial Estate in Northampton, employs 11 people in its warehouse alongside robots.
Jeroen Dekker, managing director, said during peak seasons they had fly people to and from UK which he said was "not a very sustainable model".
The company said there was "misunderstanding" around robots.
The robots at Active Ants UK are the "core of what we do alongside people", said its country director Khalil Ashong.
