As a new member of the Copa-Data Partner Community, Idec will have access to a range of knowledge exchange initiatives provided by Copa-Data with the aim of improving the ergonomics and productivity of partners’ automation projects. 

Adrian Kimberley, regional sales manager at Copa-Data UK, says: “IDEC’s commitment to provide its customers with ‘the most flexible and cost-effective solution, giving full account of existing control systems and future expansion possibilities’ completely resonates with how we drive our business here at Copa-Data UK.

“With two of the Engineers at Idec Technical Services fully trained and certified in zenon Basic and zenon Energy Edition, I am highly optimistic about the longevity of this partnership.”

Idec was originally founded in Teesside, in 1976, as a result of the booming chemical and steel manufacturing industry and a growing need for skilled workers in electrical engineering design and project management.

Throughout its 40 years of operations, Idec says it has experienced “exponential growth” not only within the UK but also overseas, resulting in the expansion into new markets and formation of new companies.

Idec was established in 2003, in order to strategically focus on control system integration, electrical high voltage protection systems and electrical distribution. Since it was set up, Idec Technical Services has delivered numerous projects in substations, gas turbines, wind turbines alike.
