03/04/2018 - DRIVES & CONTROLS: SYNONIMOUS OF QUALITY AND RELIABILITY
"This is the 9th Drives and Controls Show that we will be attending - starts the Managing Director, Brian Bannister - having not missed one since our business was established in the United Kingdom”. Drives & Controls Show, 10 to 12 April in Birmingham, will bring together state-of-the-art systems and solutions in critical sectors such as Motion Control and Automation, Energy Efficiency and Machine Safety.
"In the last few years the show has gone from strength to strength with many innovative products. For the occasion – the Managing Director continues - we will be exhibiting a wide range of products, including single-phase and brake motors, stainless solutions and with a special focus on the permanent magnet technology, customised products that the group is having continued success with. The incredible weight and size saving solutions of the HP range will be on show to enable potential customers to identify applications where these reductions will bring added benefit to their own businesses. The UK Motor Specialists will be on hand to discuss compliance with all of the latest legislative changes or simply to advise on where Lafert can bring the skills of specific industrial expertise”.
Lafert Electric Motors Ltd. in the last years were very successful in maintaining the respect of their loyal customer base through the transition of efficiency changes. “We have managed to support our customer base through all aspects of the process – Brian Bannister explains. This has enabled a strong position of the company with a growing team of internal support people in the organisation; many new customers have now also transferred their business to Lafert on the basis of technical knowledge and reliable support”.
“In 2018 we aim to continue to expand our opportunities and customers with particular emphasis on the HP motor range. Much more than motors: a loyal team of individuals with excellent knowledge of the business, a good facility in Crewe - UK and the back up of a great European factory mean that the opportunities really are endless. The days of low cost products winning all are now dwindling – concludes the Managing Director - and people are realising that saving a few percent can cost much more in the long term, so they are looking for good support, reliability and longevity, this is where Lafert can really help.
