SEW-Eurodrive wins Supplier of the Year at Bulk Handling Awards


Leading drives solutions provider SEW-Eurodrive was named 2009 Supplier of the Year award at the Australian Bulk Handling Awards.

SEW was one of eight Australian companies to receive a major award at the gala award night in Sydney last month.

SEW-Eurodrive was awarded Supplier of the Year due to its “local assembly, comprehensive range of spares, 24-hr support and products like its X-Series.”

General manager sales and operations Nick Lobianco who accepted the award said: “SEW-Eurodrive are extremely proud to receive this award.

“Over the course of the past few years we have been focussed on providing the best products within the shortest time frames to the bulk handling, mining and resources industries.

“This award shows that our efforts have been recognized.”

With products such as the MC Series and X Series industrial gear units assembled locally, the company can assemble and deliver torques from its Australian offices from 6 to 475kNm.

These products are ably supported by a range of other products such as the P Series planetary industrial gear units, XP planetary units and the recently announced larger customised helical and bevel helical units.

These customized units can be built to customers’ size and torque requirements, often up to 60 tonnes in weight and 8m in length.

SEW-Eurodrive opened a larger facility in Perth last month, giving the company the ability to assemble complete drive assemblies from this location, further expediting their delivery times to the WA market.

“We pride ourselves on being able to provide the greatest degree of service and customer support possible,” said Lobianco.
