Silverteam and Hitachi go separate ways

11 June 2010

Silverteam and Hitachi have terminated an agreement that saw Silverteam act as the exclusive agent for Hitachi inverters in the UK. The Silverteam operation will now be rolled-up into its sister company, Softstart UK.

“Our arrangement with Hitachi limited our capabilities significantly and we were unable always to meet our customers’ requests,” said Silverteam, MD Stuart Harvey. “Now we’re able to add a superb new range of inverters to our successful high-power soft-starters. We’ll also be offering a wide range of very cost-effective MV switchgear from our new supplier, Hyundai Heavy Industries, along with miniature contactors, moulded case circuit breakers, vacuum contactors and VCB's to supplement our existing motor control gear offerings.

“We’re aiming to be a complete one-stop-shop for motor control gear, right through to 11kV and will be looking to increase our capability still further in the future. The market is picking up after the recession and sales of high-power MV soft-starters are buoyant. We’ll now be able to offer complete soft-start systems built from our own off-the-shelf components and improve delivery and competitiveness to our customers’ benefit.”
