HepcoMotion acquires automation specialist Severn AutomationHepcomotion has acquired automation specialist Severn Automation. The new operation will trade as HepcoAutomation, retaining Severn’s existing staff and premises in Telford, Shropshire. Severn has built up a fine reputation for innovative automation products and excellent customer service, not just in the Telford area but across the UK.

HepcoMotion have been working closely with Severn for over 18 months. In that time customers have experienced the benefits of the close integration between the two companies. With a flexible approach to solving customers’ problems, manufacturing organisations will be able to obtain automation systems that provide real value for money.

HepcoMotion’s Sales Director Christopher Rees says: “With our long-established experience in linear motion and Severn’s undoubted motion control expertise, we will be able to satisfy a much broader range of customers’ requirements.”

The new operation will have considerably more manufacturing capacity with the ability to utilise Hepco’s main manufacturing plant in Tiverton Devon for the construction of certain machine elements.

Mark Bragg, previous part owner of Severn Automation will be the General Manager of the new operation and will support the sales effort working closely with Hepco’s nationwide network of Sales Engineers. Mark comments: “We are looking forward to an exciting future working as part of Hepco and the possibilities this new venture will bring, the work that Severn Automation undertakes is a perfect match for Hepco and its range of linear products. Now as HepcoAutomation we can now give the customer the option of a complete turnkey solution from design concept to completion”

Such has been the smooth transition to the new organisation that orders are already being taken for HepcoAutomation. Please go to to learn more.
