Goodwin Electronics secures tie-up with Control Techniques

By Mersey Maritime

Wirral-based Goodwin Electronics has secured approval as a technical distributor partner for mid-Wales based Control Techniques.

Based at the Croft Business Park, Goodwin has been established for more than 35 years specialising in machine control and positioning as well as distribution of industrial variable and servo drives.

The partnership with Control Techniques sees two companies with long histories in automation systems working together.

Gareth Jones, general manager UK and Ireland for Control Techniques, said: “The combination of Goodwin Electronics and Control Techniques is a perfect fit, with Goodwin’s capability and expertise in distribution, and Control Techniques over 40 years history in drives design, the outlook for both companies is very favourable.”

Both companies have substantial stock of variable speed drives and servo drives, and Control Techniques’ manufacturing centre in Newtown, mid-Wales, is expanding to ensure continuity of supply during any Brexit import issues that non-UK manufacturers are fearing.

Goodwin Electronics is active in the renewable energy and marine industries with wave and tidal energy projects, as well as providing energy saving drive solutions for pumps and fan applications.
