About PACE

Founded in 1996 by Nick and Ann Cesare, PACE Mechanical Handling now employs ten people, two of whom are mechanical engineers and three of whom are programmers trained in the highly specialised field of robotics.

PACE Mechanical Handling


PACE began by supplying systems incorporating affordable, high-quality second hand ABB robots; our more recent solutions utilise new Yaskawa Motoman robots, which allow us to provide our customers with the latest advances in robotic technology.

By working to our customers’ business requirements, applying our thorough understanding of the application of robotics and robot programming in our chosen fields (palletising, pick and place, and open sack filling), and with our ability to design and produce bespoke auxiliary equipment (including electronic weighing, automated sack placing, and sack closing machinery), PACE offer a uniquely customised, cost-effective and reliable service.
