A Huddersfield electrical engineering firm has joined the premier league of industrial electric motor repairers.
Westin Drives has gained accreditation from Swedish-based technology giant SKF, which makes bearing and lubrications systems in 70 countries.
The Leeds Road firm is one of only seven in the UK to become SKF Certified Rebuilders after undergoing extensive training and a stringent certification process.
The accreditation demonstrates that Westin Drives has the expertise and experience for the optimum diagnosis and repair of electric motors. To ensure standards are upheld, certified rebuilders must comply with requirements governing service, procedures, quality control, cleanliness, components and the workplace.
Managing director Ian Sheppard said: “I am delighted that the expertise of our employees has received this recognition and that our many customers will benefit accordingly.
“It raises the bar in repair service.”
