MDS launches UK tour in Scotland

 The Motor Driven Systems Conference visited Scotland on Wednesday in the first of five UK dates aimed at helping industry professionals generate huge financial savings from motor driven apparatus.

Hosted at Erik’s Distribution & Repair Centre in Broxburn, presentations from BPMA, ESTA, Resource Efficient Scotland and GAMBICA, among many others, contributed to a lively debate on how to reduce energy and make these potential savings a reality.

“The issues addressed today are critical in understanding how to save energy”, said Steve Brambley, Deputy Director at GAMBICA, one of the five founding Stakeholders. “MDS is the only platform in Europe that not only helps users optimise existing processes but explores new technologies and practices within in the key areas of pumps, compressors and fans.”

Attendees were provided with the opportunity to meet and ask questions of leading international experts throughout the day.

“Where else can you meet industry luminaries, highly respected in their field and ask questions on issues that are shaping the future of motor driven equipment?” commented Nigel Jones, national sales manager at Eriks. 

“I wanted to meet like-minded individuals and share in our experiences. MDS Scotland delivered the quality of content I hoped it would, allowing attendees to glean valuable and practical information.”

Next stop for MDS is Rotherham on 23 October, at the UK headquarters of Rittal. For more information about this event and to book a place, visit
