CP Automation and Cressall Resistors formalise relationship

CP Automation and Cressall Resistors have formalised a longstanding relationship between the two companies. The alliance enables customers to buy inverter and resistor packages quickly and with confidence in the sizing and specification of the equipment. Accurately sizing a resistor to work in tandem with an appropriate drive package can potentially reduce capital expenditure and increase efficiency - with resultant savings in operating costs.

Throughout all of its branches, CP Automation keeps a stock of Cressall products and, as a result, can react very quickly to customer requests. This is particularly beneficial because the UK resistor market has consolidated enormously over the last five to ten years, with the majority of the major players being absorbed, purchased or simply shutting down. Consequently only a few companies in the UK have the necessary stock.

Tony Young, a director of CP Automation, says: "Before co-founding CP Automation, I actually worked for Cressall Resistors. I was part of the team that helped build the UK market to the level it is currently at. Partly as a result of my time there, there is a degree of trust between our two companies that is unusual in such relationships. It also means that our team can lend a high level of experience and knowledge of the resistor marketplace to customers in the wider drives industry."

Current CP Automation customers include OEMs such as Control Techniques, Yaskawa and Parker SSD (formerly Eurotherm), as well as clients in most of the industrial application areas applying inverter control. Young says: "Over the years we have gained specification knowledge and experience in the drives industry that allows us to work well and easily in sectors ranging from printing to elevator control."

Peter Duncan, a director of Cressall Resistors, adds: "Our business has undergone some extensive growth in the last two years. As well as merging TPR Resistors with Cressall we have also had considerable organic expansion. CP Automation has been of considerable benefit to us during this period."
