Strong 2019 Performance leads to Further Expansion for Quantum Controls

41% increase in Variable Speed Service Contract Partnerships throughout the UK in 2019 has led to 200+ current Service Contracts and over 20,000 Variable Speed Drives covered under contract by 3 year running Winner of the prestigious “UK Drives and Motor Supplier of Year” award, Quantum Controls.

This continued growth of new VSD Contract Partnerships has led to the opening of two more Quantum Service Centres in Glasgow Scotland and Thurrock in the South East of England, at a time when most in the Drives Industry are cutting costs, reducing staff and freezing training.

Quantum now have a nationwide network of 6 Drive Service Centres, meaning their ever-expanding team of 21 Drive Service Engineers have a local base to operate from to ensure the best level of service is always delivered to customers.

Quantum Controls, with over 25 years’ experience as an ABB Drive Service Partner, are Official Drives Service Partners for Schneider Electric, Nidec Control Techniques, Mitsubishi, Danfoss and Vacon.

These partnerships are recognition from all the UK’s major Drive Manufacturers that Quantum are unique in the marketplace today. Quantum Engineers attend all the relevant training courses covering their Partners Drive Product Ranges which means they can offer a unique service to the UK manufacturing industry, who usually have a myriad of different drives on site. A service partnership with Quantum Controls ensures professional cover for all your drives no matter, what type, size or age.

In 2018 Quantum opened their Glasgow Service Centre and welcomed a new team of engineers to maintain and support the 24 new Service Contract Partnerships in the Scotland area.

1 year forward and Quantum have achieved a 41% increase in Service Contract Partnerships around the UK, with a focused growth in the Scotland and South East area. They have now outgrown their Service Centre in Glasgow and need a new facility in the South East area.

The expansion also includes a new team of South East Engineers, led by Jorgo Kristo. “We are excited to welcome Jorgo to lead the Southern Engineering team. Jorgo has extensive experience with Variable Speed Drives, Power Quality and Harmonics and has recently completed a Masters in Electrical Power Engineering. But the key thing for me was his attitude and commitment to customer service, he is an asset to Quantum, and we look forward to seeing him grow within the company.” Says Kevin Brown, Managing Director.
