The recession may officially be over, but the tough times are still with all of us. With record government borrowing, and cuts in public spending and slow growth, you would think this was not a good time to start a new business. If we said AllDrives & controls started in April 2009 the height of the recession, it may seem even more surprising. In April 2009, with companies failing at an increasing rate, the founders of Alldrives & Controls where in this position with the liquidation of Powertronic and Sensortronic. Having had a good working relationship with each other, a deep understanding of the UK market, and more importantly, good working relationships with the suppliers of Powertronic and Sensortronic, Alldrives & Controls was set up in the dark days of April 2 2009 with the intention of becoming your one stop shop for all your automation needs, and company motto “driving to the future” with Alldrives & Controls.
