Major Partners: ek robotics

Spotlight on: ek robotics

Partnership Objective:

To support the local community and highlight career opportunities at ek robotics


Chris Price, UK MD of ek robotics – one of the world’s leading manufacturer and system integrator of innovative high-performance transport robotics for production and warehouse logistics – met with the school in May 2021 to explore how the company could support the school. The German-based business had recently opened an office in Buckingham and was keen to begin supporting the local community, as well as to provide career opportunities to students. Following a month of meetings, discussions and a presentation to the company headquarters in Dusseldorf, ek robotics confirmed that they would donate £107,000 to the school, and pledged to further support the school for a period of at least five years. In light of the scale of the overall pledge, the school was delighted to name the soon to be completed sports facilities the ek robotics Sports Campus. 


As well as providing capital investment in the school, ek robotics is also using its expertise and resources to get involved in a wide range of initiatives. A true partnership.

The following list gives an idea of the breadth of their involvement with RLS:

* Becoming the lead sponsor of the Sports Campus

*Sponsoring the Robotics Lab in the Discovery Centre 

*Supplying IT equipment e.g. Chromebooks

*Supporting the extra-curricular Robotics Club

*Offering student work experience placements

*Visiting the Robotics Lab to give careers talks to students

*Providing marketing and PR support to launch the ek robotics Sports Campus

ek robotics is delighted to see the finished sports campus handed over to the students and wider community.

It was a pleasure and privilege to be able to help fund such an exciting project that will have great benefits for the future education of our children. We are proud to continue our support of the Buckingham community as a whole.
With help from the industry, ek robotics is looking forward to working closely with the Royal Latin School to educate and shape our future business leaders.”
