Our represented brand manufacturers make it their business to stay ahead of the curve, with significant R&D investment into the technologies that will drive the future of our workplaces and work processes.

Energy Efficiency

Power usage represents a significant cost of manufacturing operation. Loss of power can also mean many days of lost production.
Our represented component manufacturers deliver a range of power management and energy saving options designed to counter the volatility of energy costs, to improve performance and lower environmental impact, including greenhouse gas emissions.

An energy audit is critical to continued plant operation. We can assist in recommending the best solution/s to support power savings, and cost, across your process operation.

We supply a range of power management solutions, intelligent power distribution systems, power factor correction, variable speed drives and process control systems designed to monitor power usage, to maximise conversion efficiency across the entire range of load current and deliver substantial energy savings.

We also supply energy efficient lighting products and solar products for commercial and industrial applications.

Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0, the Fourth Industrial Revolution or ‘Smart Manufacturing’ represents an enhanced interconnection of the physical and virtual worlds through digital technology driving the optimisation of assets and manufacturing processes.

This ‘next wave’ represents a new industrial paradigm connecting things, services and people – with increased automation and data intelligence enhancing the protection, monitoring and control of industrial machinery and processes.
