PPSPower Group Reveals New Growth Plan

PPSPower Group Reveals New Growth Plan
25 October 2022

After 2022’s restructuring, YorPower, PPSPower, Glenace and Generator Warehouse are now operating from a single headquarters in West Yorkshire.

In June 2022, Stephen Peal became Group Managing Director of YorPower, PPSPower, Glenace and Generator Warehouse, to create a “one family” business approach. YorPower and PPSPower have historically 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.

All areas of the business now work together, from the company headquarters in West Yorkshire, and Group Managing Director Steve is consulting throughout the company, presenting a shared vision, and discussing this one-to-one with employees.


"I want to be the back-up power company everyone wants to work for.”

Creating a Family Atmosphere


As a qualified Mental Health First Aider, Steve has a highly developed understanding of staff engagement and wellbeing. The aim is to get everyone engaged in the new way of working under a single brand – rather than a collection of independent companies. To supplement the consultations, there will be a group-wide survey to find out what people think are the company’s strengths and weaknesses.

Steve is keen to ensure that the consultations are a two-way dialogue so that his staff also know what makes him feel valued – such as people popping in to see him and seek his opinion. He said: “People should never say, ‘Sorry to bother you.’ I want my staff to have their say in the direction our company is taking. We are a family, and we should be able to thrash out our differences and come through the other side stronger. We don’t have problems; we have opportunities for improvement!

“I believe I am a people person and I have always treated colleagues and employees as our greatest asset. It is essential that everyone shares the same vision and is part of defining that. I very rarely feel the need to tell anyone what to do, I include them in where I feel we need to go and agree together on the actions required to achieve our aims. I want to be the back-up power company everyone wants to work for.”


Net-Zero Goals for YorPower


The YorPower Group is also taking a proactive approach to reducing its carbon footprint. Earlier in 2022, Steve entered discussions with Neutral Carbon Zone, which helps organisations take an expert look at their sustainability agendas to see how they can slash their carbon footprint in ways they may not have expected.

Increasingly, customers and employees want to work with companies that demonstrate a commitment to becoming carbon-neutral and have solid ESG principles. YorPower aims to move from Bronze, up to Silver and Gold and finally Platinum – at which point it will be among the few organisations leading the way on sustainable working practices.
