Born from frustration

We have all been there. Being let down by a supplier.

Obso empathise with that feeling of frustration and has been created to change the way companies buy their automation equipment. This starts with having a strong culture for helping, and getting things done in time and within budget.

Our customers rely heavily on their machines working and at Obso we believe engineers and technicians alike should not be spending their precious time hunting down parts they need quickly or rare items no longer available from the brand manufacturer. We believe purchasers and fellow trade professionals should not need to have a PSL list longer than their stock list in order to ensure they are getting the best value and service.

Our distributors and factories can’t rely on just one solution. They require many different brands for their (or their customers) machines, and constant upgrades aren’t an option in factories with varying ages of machinery especially when the majority still operate reliably.

Obso Core Values


We do what we say.

We are not in business to make something seem shinier, bigger, or better than they actually are.

We talk in facts and look to be as transparent in our communication as possible. We work tirelessly to do what we say, and we are committed to delivering on promises we make.

Whether it's to a customer or colleague, we do not accept half efforts or excuses for lack of communication.


In today's world, it is easy to get caught up in the ‘do everything right all the time’ culture social media and the PC police have brought upon us.

We don’t pander to the minority, who want the world censored or void of opinions. Instead, we let people speak their mind and we’re adult enough to ignore things we don’t like or agree with.

We are human, We make mistakes, but we learn from them and look to lead by example and value actions over just words.


We are resilient in work and personal life.

Life is hard, and the tests we are sent do not define us as people, neither do they slow us down in pursuit of our goals.

We respond to difficulties positively. We see them as necessary, sent for us to become stronger and learn from in order to be the best we can be.

We are resilient, we are flexible and we take accountability for ours and our colleagues actions.


Whether it's finding a solution to what seems like an impossible task, or having to work harder because of restrictions out of our control.

We don’t whinge, we don’t moan or concentrate on that which we don’t have. Instead we count are blessings and make the most out of that we do have.

Whether that is Good, bad or indifferent.
