YorPower and PPSPower are to be reorganised under a new unified business group, headed by a new Managing Director.
Stephen Peal, who is the former Managing Director of PPSPower, will be taking on the role of Group Managing Director of the YorPower, PPSPower, Glenace and Generator Warehouse businesses.
The new role is part of a major reorganisation of the business structures and premises, which the company says will offer a far more efficient service which aims to capitalise on the steady growth both have experienced in recent years.
Under the new streamlined operations, both existing customers and potential new customers will be able to find a reliable back-up power solution of any kind more easily, whether they be from the UK or overseas.
“This reorganisation is a logical step in the group’s progression. We will start to operate as a much more unified entity, with all areas of our business working together to offer complete generator and UPS solutions for all customers in all sectors, wherever they are located globally,” Peal explains.
“The different parts of the business have always done a great job and have become highly respected within very niche areas. YorPower may be known to certain customers as a manufacturer and exporter of generators, while PPSPower can be relied upon for its maintenance expertise in the UK by customers as diverse as the National Grid, NHS, police forces, sports stadia and various water authorities, generally supported through facilities management companies.
“The common thread that runs throughout the different areas is our partnership approach: we work collaboratively with our customers to understand exactly what they need so that we can deliver a solution that exceeds their expectations. Now we are applying that same approach within our group of companies. All our staff, from CEO to apprentice, will be part of the one family approach to exceptional service.”
Ian Thompson, YorPower Director, backed up Stephen’s words, noting, “As an integrated group, we will have much greater resilience and unity. I am really excited at the prospect of being able to capitalise on the tremendous planning expertise of PPSPower throughout the rest of the business.
“Our whole culture will improve dramatically by all being part of one family. All the skills we had working in different pockets of our companies will now be pooled. It will transform our efficiency, the way we work and the service we deliver to our customers.”
Tony Brimble remains as Group CEO helping to ensure first-rate customer excellence, focusing on growth, acquisitions and the very best in business efficiencies.
