United Automation in Southport is celebrating its 60th anniversary

A thriving Southport business is celebrating its 60th birthday, after a remarkable journey from a small renovated dairy farm to becoming a global leader in power control products. 

United Automation, a leading designer and manufacturer of industrial power control products, which is based at Southport Business Park on Wight Moss Way, was founded in 1964. 

Since then, United Automation has been at the forefront of innovation, excellence, and leadership in the power control industry.

United Automation Managing Director Dean Fashoni said ‘family’ would be the one word which best describes the firm, as he follows in his father’s footsteps in achieving outstanding results. 

He said: “The next decade holds exciting possibilities. We will keep innovating and adapting.” 

A Legacy of Innovation and Excellence

United Automation was founded in 1964 and quickly established itself as a pioneer in power electronics. The company’s product portfolio includes Thyristor Controllers, Infrared Heating Controllers and Accessories, HVAC Thyristor Controllers, Power Line Filters (EMI Filters), Catering Controllers, Soft Start Controllers, AC Voltage Regulators, Electromagnetic and Vibrator Controllers, and more.

Under his leadership, the company relocated to a purpose-built factory in 1999 and inaugurated the new building in 2000 where United Automation currently operates. Following Ben’s retirement in April 2017, Dean Fashoni took over as Managing Director, continuing the legacy of excellence and innovation.
