In the summer of 2017 Drives and Automation moved into their new office at Staveley Hall. The historic Grade II listed building was originally built in 1604 for the de Frecheville family and buildings have stood on the site since 900 AD. Now it is a hive of activity as Drives and Automation continue to bring industrial expertise to the UK and the World. The new location enables us to offer a better service to our customers old and new, and being just 7 minutes off the M1 motorway we are easy to get to as well.
In 2023 we moved just a few hundred yards away to Unit 11 in The Stables, this new unit incorporates it's own test area and has greater product storage capacity.
Drives and Automation was formed in 2001 by three engineers with over 60 years drives and application experience in numerous industries.
Backed up by an expanding team of engineers, Drives and Automation provide a one stop source for a complete range of drive and automation equipment along with a full design and build service.
Our experience allows us to to offer full service from advice and consultancy, design, installation, commissioning, drive maintenance and repairs.
