As one of the largest corporations in the world, you may wonder why you haven’t heard of FANUC before…

Standing for Factory Automatic NUmerical Control, FANUC is a factory automation specialist with its global headquarters, FANUC City, situated at the foot of Mount Fuji in Japan. Employing over 5,000 employees worldwide, FANUC’s motto is ‘global strength – local presence,’ and they certainly make their presence felt in the UK with their state-of-art facility based in Coventry.

What FANUC UK says?

It’s a testament to mid-size contract hire providers, like Sandicliffe Motor Contracts, who have been strong as a business to support our needs yet still remain open and approachable.
