Group HES takes control with HES AutomaTec

06 January, 2016

Engineering company, Group HES, has launched a new Industrial Automation and Motion Control Division, HES AutomaTec. Group HES has been awarded a substantial Government investment grant to develop HES AutomaTec, as a result of a deal with long-standing partners, Triumph Actuation & Motion Control Systems. This boost will see the Gloucester-based company grow, in terms of infrastructure, staff and revenue, as well as its relationship with one of the leading Aerospace firms being further cemented.

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.

Branch Hydraulic Systems is the 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, while also undertaking its own separate projects.

Close relationship

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 its parent company Group HES being official distributor for Danfoss, (formerly Sauer Danfoss) and uses the Plus +1 product extensively in its 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 has already been using the Plus +1 product for several years and the creation of HES AutomaTec was a natural progression.

Right pedigree

Heading up the new division is Bruce Diesel, who has a background in electrical engineering and enterprise software development. As well as being an experienced software engineer; Diesel is a competitive amateur cyclist, who is going to lead the success and development of the new division.

HES AutomaTec becomes the fifth division of Group HES, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015. It joins Hydraulic Equipment Supermarkets, Branch Hydraulic Systems, HES Tractec and HES Lubemec, extending the Group’s portfolio.
