Ratingen, 23 January 2012 – Kollmorgen has awarded Heason Technology and SDT Scandinavian Drive Technologies the title of "Best European Distributor 2011". The distribution partners in Great Britain and Sweden have exhibited exceptionally good performances during the last year and have thus contributed significantly to the growth of Kollmorgen in their respective markets. With this award of "Best European Distributor 2011", Kollmorgen emphasized the importance of its distribution partners in Europe.
Patrik Hug, Vice President European Sales: "We here at Kollmorgen are very conscious of the importance of our partners to our success. With their commitment, they play a considerable part in our growth throughout the world. In Europe, we are particularly pleased this year about the extraordinarily positive development of Heason Technology as well as of SDT. Both teams demonstrated their high technological competence and great commitment when it came to supporting customers across the entire development cycle of a machine."
Roy Moffatt, Heason Group Managing Director: "In the United Kingdom and further afield, Heason quickly developed into an important player in the field of Motion Control. There are some catalog sellers who can quickly find an item number in a price list, but the high degree of competence in motion engineering is a clear strength of Heason's and an important positive distinguishing characteristic against the competition. Well done!"
Lars Radler, CEO of SDT: "SDT is one of the leading automation specialists in Sweden with a high degree of drive and motion control expertise. Since 1981, we have been working together with machine builders and users in Scandinavia. This award from a top global enterprise like Kollmorgen really delights us and proves to us that our commitment has been noted and highly appreciated."
