Welcome

Shadow designs and manufactures state-of-the-art
anthropomorphic robot hands & related systems.

Shadow was founded in 1987 by a group of robotics enthusiasts in London. In 1997 they created the Shadow Robot Company, which is one of Britain’s longest-running robotics firms and a leading developer of technology around grasping and manipulation for robotics. As well as office in the UK, we have recently opened an office in Madrid, Spain, which is a wholly owned subsidiary.

We have over 20 years experience of Innovate UK and European research projects (FP7 and H2020) as researcher, developer and end-user. Shadow’s broad expertise in robotics allows our engineers to engage in unique projects, helping our clients solve difficult problems through bespoke systems.
