APDS is First on the List for High Profile Visit



ABB’s newly appointed Business Unit Manager for Drives in the UK, Stuart Melling begins his new role, which he started on 1 January 2017. It is a busy time for ABB as more and more organisations are discovering how beneficial its products are for energy efficiency and process improvement.

ABB relies on its UK network of accredited Authorised Value Providers (AVP) to assist with sales and service support across the country and one of Stuart Mellings first priorities is to visit these trusted partners to discuss the future plans for the business.

First on the list for a visit on Tuesday 10 January was Bristol based AVP, APDS.

Alan Jones, Sales and Marketing Director for APDS said “We were delighted to welcome Stuart Melling to our Avonmouth Office and introduce him to the APDS team. We have worked closely with Stuart in the past, and I am sure that he will continue to be a keen supporter of the ABB partner network going forward. Stuart was particularly interested in taking a tour around our ABB stockroom which we added to the business last year. Our customers appreciate that the stock they require can be delivered, installed and commissioned quickly and efficiently by a local South West company”

Stuart Melling added “APDS is the perfect partner for ABB in the South West of England and South Wales. They have a great set up at Avonmouth, and are ideally placed to promote, sell and service ABB products. Their technical knowledge and the application of  ABB drives, motors and soft start devices in particular is second to none; enabling them to provide customers with the excellent level of service ABB is famous for. I am confident that APDS will continue to provide the best possible partnership in this growing region and in providing first class levels of support for our customers through the whole life of the equipment.”

APDS plays an important part of ABB’s multi-channel strategy, with partners strategically selected around the UK in order to provide local, fast response support when needed, with the full backing of a technology leading multinational manufacturer. APDS’ location means that they are the natural first choice for many customers in the South West and South Wales.
