maxon, the manufacturer of motor and drive solutions, has recruited Ben Smith as the new UK Sales Manager for the Parvalux brand. Ben will support OEM customers across the UK and Ireland. With over 10 years’ of motor and mechatronic experience, Ben joins maxon as the company sets to expand customer support for the Parvalux range in the brand’s home market.

The new Parvalux UK Sales Manager brings extensive industry experience across a broad range of applications, including medium and low-power motors, mechatronics, and power transmission.

Parvalux is the UK’s largest manufacturer of fractional horsepower, geared electric motors. Ben will apply his experience to the brand’s portfolio, which covers AC motors up to 250W, as well as permanent magnet DC motors and brushless DC motors up to 600W. All of the motor range can be assembled with Parvalux gearheads. Additionally, some of the maxon motor portfolio can be paired with Parvalux gearheads to create powerful and compact geared motor solutions.

Strengthening the Parvalux customer care team is part of maxon’s continued investment in the brand since the acquisition of the UK motor manufacturer in 2018. This investment support has also included a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Bournemouth, completed earlier this year.

“Parvalux is an established motor manufacturer with a well-developed UK market,” says Ben. “I’m delighted to bring my motor industry experience to the company, and I look forward to partnering with Parvalux’s customers.”

William Mason, maxon UK & Ireland’s Managing Director, comments: “Ben is a strong addition to the maxon team in the UK & Ireland, and heading up Parvalux’s customer support is an integral role. Ben has the technical experience in motors and transmission, alongside a strong knowledge of customers’ needs, to provide capable support to projects across Parvalux’s primary sectors.”
