Our story recently appeared in the South West Business, you can read more below…

“A company which supplies motors and drives used by manufacturers in their machines and equipment is growing in Bristol.

APDS has acquired additional premises which will more than double existing space adjacent to its existing business in Dean Road, Avonmouth.

It will use the warehouse space to keep supplies for an online shop which will make it the UK’s largest stockist of ABB drives and motors.

Customers will be able to order online or by phone and it should open up new markets for the firm, which looks to help companies cut their energy costs using better motors in sectors including automotive, cement and food and beverage.

The firm has taken on a new member of staff. Sam Parsons, 21, has joined the company as a sales support engineer.

Sam was previously with an electrical automation company and before that he was in the RAF. He will be using his knowledge and skills to manage APDS’s database of installed drives, ensuring customers are provided with a follow up service and replacement plan.

Part of Sam’s role will be co-ordinating the after care service for buyers of drives and motors. The after care service includes site visits and the supply of Preventative Maintenance kits to prolong the life and efficiency of the products.

The firm is looking to employ another salesperson too.

Sales and marketing director Alan Jones said: “This is a very exciting time for APDS as we build on our existing relationship with ABB, as an authorised dealer for its motors and drives.

“We aim to be the ‘go-to’ place for any business looking to improve process optimisation through the installation or replacement of motors or drives. We have experienced staff to advise companies on the best solution for them and importantly have the stock availability here and now.”
