WB Power Services (WBPS) has scaled up its UK operations as profits rise 30% on the year before.
According to the company, the growth is the result of a boost in its service capabilities as well as a surge in demand for critical power systems across several key industries, including data centres.
WBPS has increased the number of depots it has around the UK, recently opening its ninth in Milton Keynes, to keep up with the increased demand.
It has also expanded the number of Kohler rental generators in its fleet, doubling the number available to 1,000 across the UK, including many Stage V engines that are cleaner to operate and produce lower emissions.
“We’ve experienced significant growth over the last three years and have ramped up our service capabilities to keep pace and ensure we can consistently deliver the service we’re renowned for – which is providing emergency power, when and where it’s needed,” explained Andy Wilmott, Managing Director at WBPS.
“The scaling up our UK activities has been fundamental to the success and growth we’re seeing year on year. We now employ over 200 staff across a country-wide network of service centres, workshops, depots, and offices around the UK. This includes a team of 150 highly qualified engineers providing specialist knowledge and insight for consultants when specifying generators, as well as servicing emergency call-outs for back-up power.”
He added, “Despite it being a challenging year, it’s also been our most successful to date. We continuously put our customers’ needs at the heart of everything we do. Regardless of the industry – construction, data centres, utilities or events – our customers rely on us to provide them with power when they need it most. It’s our strong family values and pride in the work we do, that ensures each member of the WBPS team is committed giving our customers the best possible service.”
WBPS is the UK’s largest distributor of Kohler generators in Europe.
