Westin Drives has been appointed a Lenze Engineering Partner, joining a group of eight companies which offers customers expertise and local support for automation projects. Lenze Marketing Manager, Geoff Spear, said: “Westin Drives is a valuable addition to our network of Engineering Partners because it has strong product knowledge and experience and is well established in its area’’.
As part of the Partnership, our electro-mechanical engineers in Huddersfield and Leeds are trained on Lenze automation products and equipped with the latest software tools. We have worked with Lenze for more than 20 years. The focus of this relationship has been on the supply of frequency inverters, geared motors, spring applied brakes and shaft connections to customers in the M62 corridor.
More recently other strengths have been added with automation products such as PLCs, HMIs, servo drives and motion control. This is now recognised with the award of Lenze Engineering Partner. The broadness of the Lenze portfolio allows our firm to take on both simple and complex projects. Typically these might be upgrades to food processing machinery, fluid-flow pump and fan applications and mechanical handling equipment such as conveyors and lifting.
Westin Drives staff offer project evaluation, management, software writing, panel building, installation and commissioning. This is supported by the Lenze team of application engineers in the UK and Europe. As a Lenze Engineering Partner, we can offer a complete drive and automation package from the controllers and visualisation to the drives, geared motors and couplings.
Westin Drives Managing Director, Ian Sheppard, said: “We are pleased to be one of only a handful of companies recognised by Lenze with its Partnership programme. The expertise and support that flows from this relationship will be of great benefit to our customers. This accreditation from Lenze comes on the heels of Westin Drives achieving the status of SKF Certified Rebuilders and is a tribute to the skill and hard work of our staff.”
