Heason Technology is appointed Preferred Sales Partner UK for Kollmorgen
News Release from:
Heason Technology Ltd
Kollmorgen Europe GmbH, the global motion systems and components manufacturer has signed UK based motion control distributor and systems integrator Heason Technology into its newly launched 'Sales Partner Program'
The 'Sales Partner - Silver' programme is a contractual agreement that provides the foundation and resources for the highest level of technical and commercial support for Heason's customers throughout Kollmorgen's comprehensive range of motors, drives and motion/machine application software. This includes regular factory based training for Heason's applications and sales teams as well as a competitive pricing policy and fast product delivery from a stock inventory programme.
Heason Technology has represented Kollmorgen in the UK for over 20 years and the new business partnership initiative consolidates the close working relationship that has been forged between the two companies. We welcome Heason Technology as an inaugural member of our new Silver Partner programme, says Dietmar Kammer, Kollmorgen’s Export Sales Manager. We are sure that Heason will provide our customers with a real value-add service that will be of benefit to us all.
The close links and solid business relationship between the two companies was underpinned in a recent visit that Heason's General Manager, Jon Howard, made to Kollmorgen's servo motor manufacturing plant in Brno, Czech Republic. The showcase 7500 m2 facility has been manufacturing Kollmorgen servomotors for more than ten years and helped to develop the high performance AKM range in 2005. The AKM range covers 8 frame sizes with maximum rated power from 0.3 kW to 23 kW and continuous torque rating to 180 Nm. With full design, production, test and support functions at the Brno plant, there are more than 150,000 different variants of the AKM range available and over 1,600 motors are produced per week using a comprehensive ERP system that targets an order in/out lead time of just two weeks. The Silver Partner agreement was signed at this year's SPS/IPC/DRIVES Exhibition in
Nuremberg in November.
