Danfoss Partner welcomes new drives expert to the team

Tuesday, 31 August 2021

Danfoss Drives maintains a very close relationship with all members of its’ nationwide distribution network, and is extremely pleased to welcome a new and highly experienced member of staff who has recently joined the team at Digicon Solutions Ltd.

Digicon’s new recruit, Steve Takhar, will be instrumental in assisting the Company to promote the sale of Danfoss VLT® and VACON® variable speed drives, while ensuring Digicon continue to provide the very high level of customer service that is consistently delivered by our partner network.

Steve has been working in the variable speed drives (motion control) industry for over 40 years, and thanks to his applications expertise, he is highly experienced in providing customers with solutions that will increase productivity and reliability, whilst saving costs and energy.


In his new role, as a Drives Specialist, Steve will be providing front line technical support and advice, and also demonstrating how the Danfoss Drives VLT and VACON product ranges can benefit potential new customers.

When he is not hard at work, Steve enjoys ‘trying’ to play better golf, not always successfully. Keeping fit both physically at the local gym and swimming, and also mentality which is important. An ever-growing family of grandkids keep me busy and also up to speed with the latest IT gadgets. For my wife’s non-pleasure, I enjoy all sports either participating or watching. For my sins I support Tottenham Hotspur (someone has to).


“I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Steve, who brings a wealth of experience and knowledge with him that will add tremendous value to the Digicon sales and service offerings”, said Danfoss Drives UK & IE Country Manager Alan Baird.


“It’s great to have Steve on board as a key member of the Digicon team!  His vast knowledge and focus on customer satisfaction meant that he was the perfect fit for Digicon.” says Karl Jones, Managing Director of Digicon Solutions Ltd.


Steve is one of the best-known figures in the drives industry and has always been a leader in driving innovation. He has been instrumental in the progress that many leading companies have made installing variable speed drives to increase energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. Steve has had a very successful career including 15 years at Vacon Drives UK and now as a key player within the team at Digicon Solutions Ltd.


Digicon, an authorised Danfoss Sales & Service partner, offers intelligent and energy efficient motor control solutions installed by their specialist engineers. Digicon can support and repair the complete range of VLT® and Vacon® products, available for next day delivery and technical support available 24/7.
