Mitsubishi sets up UK support network for larger drives

23 November, 2020

Mitsubishi Electric UK is setting up a network of Drive Solutions Centres (DSCs) to support large-capacity low- and medium-voltage VSDs (variable-speed drives). Initial partners in the network include Total Automated Solutions in North Yorkshire, Lawrence Electrical Contractors in the East Midlands, Newton Tesla in Cheshire and Engineering Systems & Projects in East Anglia.

“Having helped UK industry to move forward with our class-leading low-power drive systems, it’s now time to further improve our overall service proposition for larger-capacity drives,” explains Mitsubishi's national sales manager, Stuart Woodhead. “This will include system design and build, installation, commissioning and the ongoing need for site service and support.

“By working together, we believe Mitsubishi Electric and a select number of key partners can deliver better operating efficiency with improved system performance and visibility using intelligent automation solutions as part of a turnkey service,” he adds. “Dedicated project management and client communications are expected to improve turnaround times.”
