Last week I had the honour to host the 10th anniversary to celebrate the founding of our ABB Drives Alliance. This group of 12 channel partners set out in 2000 to completely revolutionise the way variable speed drives are bought in the UK. The focus then, as is now, is on three areas: the supply of world class products; the best customer service and lifecycle support in the industry; and a determination to reduce the energy and CO2 bills of customers, wherever they are in the UK. Since 2000 the alliance has sold over £60 million worth of drives and saved an estimated 5,781,553 tonnes of CO2. Here are some more interesting facts. If the ABB Drives Alliance was a manufacturer, it would be the third largest drives supplier in the UK, being at least twice the size of the majority of drive manufacturers UK sales. So from humble beginnings we now have an extremely powerful and unrivalled partner network. Click here to watch our new video which describes the power of the ABB Drives Alliance.
