Automate UK Tiptree factory tour - A sweet treat for its members

Wilkin &Sons have been farming at Tiptree for over 300 years and have become a household name with regards to its jams and conserves. On 22nd February they graciously allowed a group of Automate UK members to tour their spectacular factory and farm.

Feedback from our members about the tour:

Great visit to see a different industry and see how an iconic firms factory works. Thank you.’

 ‘Very well organised and an enjoyable day. The factory tour was interesting and good to see all the processes in action. All members of staff were friendly and informative. I would recommend any member taking part in the next tour.’

‘The Tiptree Factory tour was a really great day, very informative and interesting. The organisation from Automate UK was great and the day ran very smoothly. Would very much recommend taking part in an Automate UK event if you get the opportunity.’
