Sprint Electric was formed in 1987 through the partnership of Edwin Prescott and David Van Der Wee. Having both worked for SSD, Edwin and David brought their respective design talents together to initially create a small range of analogue DC Drives. Some years later the flagship PL/X digital DC Drive range was launched which positioned Sprint Electric as a global leader in its field. Whilst David retired from the business in 2007, Edwin continues to lead the business as Chairman.
