Deft Automation is the new trading name for URA Industrial Automation. 

URA Industrial Automation started operation in 2009 as Up and Running Automation offering custom automation solutions to a single client. When demand for services increased in 2010, Roland Dymond, left his full time employment to operate Up and Running Automation as a full time role.

Since then Up and Running Automation has continued to evolve, servicing its long term clients while successfully gaining and maintaining new clients. In May 2014, Up and Running Automation became URA Industrial Automation to rebrand itself and help improve business definition. Along with the rename, a new icon was created to represent the business. The chasing arrows represent the three stages of a control loop, input, feedback and control. In the coming months URA Industrial Automation will be moving to its own dedicated engineering and panel building office to provide more room to grow and serve it clients.
