ABB expands its technical support for variable speed drives (VSDs) in the UK with the appointment of Staffordshire-based system integrator Radway Control Systems Ltd.
Radway Control Systems is the latest UK system integrator to be awarded ABB Value Provider status, cementing a partnership that goes back nearly two decades. With the accreditation, Radway benefits from ABB’s on-going support, training and product innovation, helping the company to provide a comprehensive VSD engineering service.

The company specialises in AC and DC drive engineering solutions and industrial control systems for continuous process lines. It also has a focused expertise in crane applications.
The agreement marks the culmination of many years of distinguished service, as Jon Taylor, Director, Radway, explains: “Attaining ABB Value Provider status is testament to the hard work and dedication shown by our engineering team. We embarked on this process to formalise our long-standing relationship with ABB and to obtain their public seal of approval for our deep knowledge of their drives and the applications in which they are used. The relationship with ABB is a key driver of our business and will help us expand our operations and customer base. We have a healthy future order book and are already looking to expand our operations by moving into a larger premises as we introduce more customers to the benefits of ABB drives.”
Rory Hamilton, UK Channel Manager, ABB, adds: “Radway is a company that we know and trust from years of working together, and so this appointment is the next logical progression in our relationship. As a UK drive system integrator, Radway allows us to fulfil the needs of the UK market more effectively and help our customers to integrate automation into their processes to improve efficiency, productivity, safety and quality.”
The ABB Value Provider network offers UK customers access to ABB motors, VSDs and mechanical power transmission products together with a wide range of services, technical advice, training and bespoke contracts. Although each ABB Value Provider is an established and successful engineering company, all members of the network must undertake regular training to ensure its product, industry and technical knowledge is of the standard required to deliver accredited sales, support and service in close cooperation with ABB.
