To celebrate the union between world-leading Germanic technology and Great British engineering, Central Group recently held its very own mini Oktoberfest!
The Oktoberfest event was held to unveil the new distribution partnership between Siemens LV Motors UK and our family owned and run engineering company.
Central Group already provides expertise in the maintenance and repair of pumps and alternators, and the new partnership sees it offering Siemens’ products covering a performance range from 0.09 to 4000 kW to end users and OEMs within the utilities, chemicals, metals, paper, food & beverage, oil & gas and renewables markets.
Representatives from both Central and Siemens were on hand throughout the event to discuss the new digital technology and innovations. Visitors were also talked through the benefits of the revolutionary BluVision equipment, which can provide up to the minute, detailed information on the condition of any rotating equipment; a game changer in the field of preventative maintenance.
A team from the AEMT also attended the event, promoting the benefits of membership and adding to the overall information available at the Oktoberfest event; all of which was enjoyed with the delicious accompaniment of a traditional Bavarian BBQ.
Said Shaun Sutton, Director and Co-owner of the Central Group: “The new partnership is a really important move for Central Group in enabling us to better meet the needs of our customers. It enables us to provide future-oriented, high quality solutions which will add value and improve competitive advantage and what better way for our customers to find out more than with a beer in one hand – non-alcoholic of course – and a Bavarian sausage in the other!!”
Just one of the ways in which new technological developments from Siemens will deliver tangible benefits to Central Group is the introduction of Smart tags. Holding communications and localisation functions within the smart tags, this data will accompany products along the production line recognising, logging and controlling process steps, significantly increasing efficiencies and optimising quality.
Through its Partner Program, Siemens works closely with a number of different networks of partners, all of which have to meet certain high standards to gain verification in the program. The selected partners provide future-oriented, high quality solutions to add value and improve competitive advantage for all industry sectors.
