Siemens and HMK 1 million GBP growth boosted by new partnership deal

Siemens Drive Technologies, a division of Siemens Industry sector, has announced an extension to its strategic partnership with HMK Technical Services Ltd to cover Siemens low voltage motors and drives. HMK can now offer OEMs a complete drive train solution from Siemens for increased project efficiency.

The appointment of HMK, based in Congleton, as an official partner for Siemens low voltage motors follows the existing partnership’s success to date.  In the first quarter of 2012, Siemens celebrated hitting £1 million worth of growth for its motion control business as a result of its collaboration with HMK.

HMK fully supports the specification and installation of all the solutions it offers from Siemens. This means there is now one point of contact for any OEMs looking for complete drive train solutions.

Ian Welsh, Siemens Drive Technologies, comments: “Extending our long-standing partnership with HMK is testament to its success and our drive to ensure our solutions meet our customers’ needs in a challenging marketplace. Importantly, the incorporation of our low voltage motors and drives business into its offering, means HMK can provide a complete package of drive train solutions, giving customers one consistent point of contact.”

Gary Kitchin, managing director of HMK, added: “Our successful collaboration with Siemens has now been strengthened even further to help deliver increased operational efficiency, safety and energy efficiency for OEMs and ultimately their end user customers. Being able to offer solutions for the complete drive train enables us to provide even greater service to meet our customers’ needs.”
