Industrial Automation expert Euroserv Ltd has acquired an additional workshop facility in the Midlands and hired Simon Dean as workshop manager. Located near Stone, Staffordshire, the new premises will allow the company more room to grow as a business. Euroserv is the sister company of sales and service specialist CP Automation.  

Euroserv will be able to offer its services to large OEMs, including those with which the company already has business relationships in the Midlands, as well as new customers in the area. The company chose organic growth instead of acquisition.

“The original plan was to look at buying a business, but then it was decided with the team at Euroserv in Sunderland that we would strategically follow this route instead,” explained Tony Young Managing Director of CP Automation.

“In the last seven years, Euroserv has grown dramatically. We were looking at moving into an additional unit next door or to a new unit altogether because we have completely outgrown the current space in Sunderland.

“A new unit in Stone made perfect sense. After having discussions with the team in Sunderland, we decided that the long term aim is to generate more business here in the Midlands that we have not been able to service to our high standards before - due to locality.

“I'm sure we're going to be repeating the success we had when we started up in Sunderland and, in the longer term, increasing the size of the workshops in Stone,” concluded Young.

Simon Dean adds: “Having worked in the servo motor repair industry for many years, I plan to bring several customers on board. We've got good relationships with big OEMs in the country that have facilities in the Midlands.

“We want to make customers aware of what we do and to target the Midlands with our message about service and repair.”
