ABB creates drives and motors network

ABB drives

ABB has amalgamated its UK variable-speed drives and electric-motors networks into a single brand identity to create a new benchmark for technical advice, delivery, life-cycle services and overall customer satisfaction. The former ABB Drives Alliance and ABB Motor Service Partner networks are now part of the Authorised Value Provider programme, an initiative that over time will encompass more third-party companies selling other ABB products.

The Authorised Value Provider network provides technical expertise, product and service availability under one recognisable local branch structure. It extends across the entire life cycle of drives and motors by providing services such as energy and productivity appraisals, installation, start-up and preventive maintenance.

There is a distinctive logo for the Authorised Value Provider network. Third-party companies authorised to display the logo have signed an agreement to stock, distribute and provide local value-added support.
