What Our Customers Say...

"Reference to the most recent install of 3 off 22kW ACQ 580 VSD’s at Olton Ulverley Green SPS. Just wanted to provide some feedback post this installation and thank you and your engineers on a most superb job. Both Mick and Aaron worked in a very professional manner, engaging as they always do with the local SAP before commencement. The install went very well, VSD’s contained within the approved CEMA panels with a brilliant support structure fabricated on site to provide upmost stability for these panels. Commissioning was excellent with the resultant control philosophy being discussed with me, site was left in a very tidy fashion following completion. The paperwork was also top notch including the method statement and risk assessment, sent to appropriate stakeholders with plenty of time for review. Following the install, VSD characteristics were sent to me without any prompting, this being particularly useful for capitalisation purposes at year end. Many Thanks again for a great job done!!

“I made a call to Blaise late afternoon of the 30th of January in desperate need of a VSD to be installed at a site. Blaise @ IDS happily provided a rough cost and confirmed they could have a unit delivered and installed the next day and happy to provide one person and have one from AW assisting to help keep cost low and have a bit of cross training. The work went ahead and site all resolved, fast, friendly and professional service!”
