COVID-19 - update

The health and well-being of our employees, customers and suppliers are of paramount importance to us.

We continue to monitor the latest advice and guidance from the government and are working on measures across our business to minimise any future disruption which we may experience.

Motortronics has been deemed part of the “essential” business supply chain due to the industries and customers we serve.

We have a carefully restructured operation in place to ensure continuity of service and supply and will continue to ensure that we are following latest government & health guidelines to support the health and welfare of our staff worldwide.

Our staff are available via phone, email or video conference facilities in lieu of face to face meetings.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and should anything change a member of our team will be in touch directly. For more information click here for a statement from Motortronics’ Vice President – Joyce Mitchell.

As one of only a few ‘true’ manufacturers of Medium Voltage Solid State Starters in the world, Motortronics’ products can be recognised under name brands of several key players in the electrical industry. Our products are being used as an integral part of packages offered by names like ABB, General Electric, Siemens, Schneider Electric and Toshiba just to name a few. Our strong engineering capabilities, manufacturing excellence and quality control have provided the foundation for the long term and successful relationships we have with all of our customers. Our customers have come to rely on Motortronics for dependable solutions to their motor starting needs.

The Fairford low voltage soft starter ranges, previously marketed as synergy, agility and PFE, are now called VMX-synergy™, VMX-agility™ and VMX-PFE™.
