GES Group has become the only all-Ireland authorised distributor and repair agent of the world's most comprehensive motor manufacturer, Nidec Leroy-Somer.
Part of Nidec's Appliance, Commercial and Industrial Motors (ACIM) division, Leroy-Somer is a world leader in electromechanical and electronic drive systems, and the world leader in industrial alternators.
As a leading and award-winning electrical and mechanical engineering company, offering an extensive range of products and specialist services,the addition of the Nidec Leroy-Somer range to the GES Group portfolio is a positive development.
Nidec, the world's number one comprehensive motor manufacturer, acquired Control Techniques and Leroy-Somer in 2017, and the decision to appoint GES Group as an authorised partner is part of the company's targeted growth strategy.
"We are delighted to be appointed as an authorised distributor and repair agent for the Nidec Leroy-Somer range," said David Moore, Managing Director, GES Group.
"For over 45 years, we have prided ourselves on the powerful partnerships that we have developed with globally recognised customers and world leading manufacturers. Nidec Leroy-Somer clearly falls into that category and are a great fit for our business."
"In 2018, we focused on achieving company-wide development. This announcement is a hugely positive way for us to begin 2019."
Colin Ditchfield, UK & Ireland Sales Director for Leroy-Somer, added, "In terms of their commitment to quality and their long-standing reputation in industry, GES Group more than match our criteria for an authorised partner, and we are delighted to be working with them."
As an authorised Nidec Leroy-Somer partner, GES Group is able to offer value-added services to customers, including: express availability and local stock; project management; sizing and on-site commissioning; preventive and predictive maintenance; repairs, overhauls and rewinds; and efficiency analysis.
Looking at the history of both companies, it is clear to see the correlation in terms of reputation and quality. Founded in 1919, Leroy-Somer is a French company employing over 7,000 people worldwide, and Nidec's ACIM division has brand pedigree stretching over 100 years, delivering quality and innovative technology for generations.
Established in 1972 as Grants Electrical Services (NI) Ltd., the company grew into GES Group - a silent partner to industry and an essential element in maintaining and strengthening the backbone of power generation, utilities, manufacturing, and the agri-structure of Ireland and the UK. The Group's expertise includes control panels, distribution panels, PFC and harmonics, switchgear and drives, HV and LV installations and upgrades, rewnewable energy systems, and more.
