Siemens Drives Technology (DT) has linked up with a number of industry suppliers and distributors in a drive train partnership that will directly benefit end users.
The aim of the partnership is to promote Siemens capability and to deliver products and systems faster to customers. Siemens drive train products, which include variable speed drives, induction motors, geared motors and gearboxes, are being offered through well established high quality partner companies. The selected partners are Brammer, Hayley, Fraser & Macdonald, Southern & Redfern, Dorlec, Anstee Ware, CPM and MR Engineering.
Siemens has also significantly increased its service offer, and is now providing a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week call out service for all of its motors. UK stock profiles have also been increased and widened to meet the additional expected demand created by the partners. Siemens is now able to supply a wide range of eff1 industrial motors up to 200 kW direct from stock located at its Bradford site. Additionally, the new Siemens partners are able to supply Siemens motors up to 90kW from stock, along with other services offered to customers such as motor and drive installations, and manufacturer warranted motor repair facilities.
Paul Dudley, Siemens Channel Manager (Drives Technology), said: "This new partnership enables Siemens to deliver its DT products and services through a strong national and regional parts network to its large and varied customer base. Siemens customers will see an immediate and long-term benefit from this move."
