Stephen Peal has been appointed Group Managing Director of the YorPower, PPSPower, Glenace and Generator Warehouse businesses.
YorPower and PPSPower have previously operated as separate entities, despite being part of the same group. PPSPower is best known for providing reliable maintenance solutions for both generators and UPS units. YorPower operates nationally and internationally to manufacture, install and commission generators to provide back-up and prime power solutions for its wide-ranging customers.
The two companies are now reorganising their business structure and premises to offer a far more efficient service which aims to capitalise on the growth both have experienced in recent years.
Stephen Peal, formerly the Managing Director of PPSPower, is now Group Managing Director of the integrated businesses. “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,” he explained.
“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.”
YorPower Director Ian Thompson commented, “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.”
“With grid infrastructure across Asia and Africa being incredibly unreliable, more and more clients are looking to YorPower for reliable back-up power solutions,” added YorPower’s Export Manager, Jordan Kincaid.
Tony Brimble remains as Group CEO helping to ensure customer excellence, focusing on growth, acquisitions and the very best in business efficiencies.
