Quantum Controls enters into new agreement with ABB Drives

After a 25-year partnership, the UK’s largest ABB Drives partner has signed a new deal with ABB’s Drives division after it was mutually agreed that Quantum Controls has outgrown the ABB Drives Authorised Value Provider (AVP) network.

The ABB Drives AVP network is a collection of engineering companies who, contractually, are only allowed to supply and support ABB drives up to 500kW to customers in their designated postcode areas.

Quantum Controls were a founding member of the UK AVP network, originally set up by the visionary ABB Drives managers Ian Rennie and James Haigh in 2000, formerly named the Drives Alliance.

The new deal sees Quantum leave the ABB Drives AVP network and the operating restrictions imposed on its partners, allowing Quantum to better serve the needs of UK industry on a national basis.

Managing Director, Kevin Brown states “There is not one of our circa 200 service contract customers that have only one type of drive installed across their plant. Quantum Controls are the only company in the UK who can offer our expert services on all major drive manufacturer’s products – a unique service in today’s market place.

The new direct agreement with ABB Drives UK allows Quantum to continue to supply and support ABB drives up to and now also above 500kW power ratings. However, crucially, we now have the freedom to establish new additional partnerships with all major drive manufacturers, making us the only true ‘one-stop shop’ that every UK variable speed drive user needs.”
