About HES Automatec
HES Automatec is the latest addition to Group HES' portfolio. This development comes as a result of a deal with Triumph Actuation & Motion Control Systems, as Group HES has been awarded a substantial government investment to develop this new Industrial Automation and Motion Control division. The development of this new division, HES Automatec has arisen in part as well in response to increasing demand from customers, who are looking for more turnkey solutions.
HES Automatec has undertaken some large projects working alongside sister division Branch Hydraulic Systems. Branch Hydraulic Systems is our existing engineering arm of Group HES and has several decades of experience within the fluid power industry. HES Automatec provides control solutions to Branch Hydraulic Systems’ customers, where required, whilst also undertaking their own separate projects.
The close relationship between the divisions sees the two technical teams sharing an office; therefore customers receive complete solutions under one contract, from one trusted supplier. No longer do customers have to compromise between a control and a hydraulic solution or wait for both sides to try and solve an issue, the engineers will work together to provide an optimal and efficient response first time, reducing the time, money and effort required by the customer.
HES Automatec benefits from the Group being official distributors for Danfoss, (formerly Sauer Danfoss) and uses the Plus +1 product extensively in their projects. With a long historical relationship with (Sauer) Danfoss, dating back to the early 1980s, the company has significant technical knowledge and experience to offer expert advice to the customer. Branch Hydraulic Systems have already been using the Plus +1 product for several years and the creation of HES Automatec was a natural progression.
Heading up the new division is Bruce Diesel, who has an impressive background in electrical engineering and enterprise software development. As well as being an extremely capable and experienced software engineer; Bruce is a competitive amateur cyclist, who is going to lead the success and development of the new division.
