Techdrives are generally unable to handle enquiries or offer technical advice to companies whose invoice and despatch address is outside of the UK and Ireland .

We are prevented by contract to supply to other countries as our partners may have different distribution arrangement.

Where we receive enquiries from other countries, if they are judged of interest, they will be passed on to the relevant partner factory.  We cannot guarantee their response.

We are the European Master Distributor for Panasonic geared motors, in the case of Panasonic enquiries from other European countries, we will either handle them directly or pass them to one of our appointed agents.

Generally you can link to the following supplier websites:

Actuators & Screw jacks -

Clutches & brakes -

Tooth clutches & couplings -

Signal towers & beacons -

Precision gearboxes -

Torque limiters -


In this case we generally trade through our partner Torsion Dynamics based in Malahide.

food processing, packaging, conveyors and mechanical transport.  However our products are also used in diverse areas of industry: railway points testing, wind turbine brakes, building maintenance cradles, solar tracking, voice annunciators for access
