Quantum Controls wins prestigious ‘UK Drive Rental Company of the Year’ Award 2018

“We are delighted to win this prestigious award, working with market leading products makes our work much easier.” says Mark Hodgkinson UK Drive Rental Fleet Manager. Since launching the Rental Department back in 2015, it has been a steady increase for the department. During 2016 we saw our business double in size as we have increased our portfolio of products and really targeted the market.  

“Mark and his team, and the whole of Quantum Controls, have worked extremely hard to get this award. I am very proud and look forward to what the rest of 2018 and the future brings. Hopefully we will win UK Drive Rental Company of the Year 2019. Keep your eyes peeled.” Adds Kevin Brown, Managing Director. This award comes at a wonderful time as we are investing a further £1.2 million in 2018 to extend the hire fleet stock to keep up with customer demand.

“Quantum Drive Rental Service ensures that costly downtime is kept to an absolute minimum when a client has their production process down due to a failed variable speed drive unit” says Hodgkinson.

“When our 800kw Pulper Drive failed at 2am we contacted Quantum Controls who had a hire drive on its way to us within the hour. We were losing £20k an hour in lost production but Quantum Engineers met the Drive at site, installed, commissioned the drive and the plant was up and running by 11am. Excellent Service that saved us a lot of money” adds Steve Smith, Electrical Engineering Manager for one of Quantum’s long standing customers.
