Technique has been appointed the first Large Drives Technical Partner by Siemens UK and Ireland and will be responsible for helping Siemens continue to grow its Large Drives Business in the UK.
The company was established at Trafford Park, Manchester, 12 years ago, from where is provides drive system support for a project’s entire lifecycle, from design and build to integration, retro-fits, obsolescence support and repair and maintenance programmes. Its in-house technical support capabilities were a major factor in Siemens; selection as a Large Drives Partner.
Technique will be the first Siemens Large Drives Technical Partner to stock and supply SINAMICS drives up to 560 kW, and up to 800 kW in linked drives for projects, holding stock to ensure it can respond quickly to customers.
Technique‘s managing director Andy Love said: “We have always led the company from an engineering perspective as we evolved from the drives service industry, and like Siemens, we look for long-term relationships with our customers. Having the enhanced support of Siemens‘ superb engineering expertise is a great strength and we’re looking forward to continued growth in integrated drive systems engineering.“
Mike Houghton is MD of Siemens UK and Ireland’s Process Industries and Drives, and he welcomed Andy Love of Technique to the Siemens HQ in Manchester last month. Mike commented: “Siemens industry knowledge is second to none in the important drive system sector and we’re building a network of trusted large drives technical partners to help us provide future-proof, customised solutions, backed by global and local service support. We’re delighted to welcome Technique on board as the first Partner of this type.“
