Powervamp Ltd, Weston-super-Mare
Powervamp Ltd has been regarded as the world leader in the design, and manufacture, of high quality power products into many professional markets for 18yrs and has built a reputation for refusing to compromise on quality. Powervamp understands the requirement to meet the customers criteria properly, first time.
The company has achieved its stability and continual growth, despite the economic downturn, due to its varied market spread including Aviation, Automotive, Racing, Airshow Rental, and its new Battery division.
Powervamp’s aviation division has won many prestigious contracts from supplying ground power for the Farnborough, Singapore and Paris airshows to the recent in-house design and installation of the fixed electrical ground power system at Bristol Airport.
The automotive division produce a range of high discharge jump-starting equipment, aimed at the professional operator, and hold contracts with Draper, RAC, Unipart, Ring Automotive, First Group and Royal Mail amongst others.
The company recently bought Luton based ‘Effekta’ to add technical and commercial strength to its financial reserves whilst allowing it to tender for major international projects. The new acquisition puts the combined total number of employees up to 33 with several new positions being created in anticipation of the increased sales drive.
The geographical position of the company within the west-country is also key in allowing the company to react quickly. Located only 20 minutes from Bristol Airport as well as the M4/M5 intersection means that travelling throughout the UK, or further afield, is quick and immediate.
Powervamp will stay within the vicinity when it amalgamates its office, factory and four industrial units as work commences on its purpose built factory program due to commence in 2014.
At the 2014 North Somerset Business Awards, Powervamp won the Innovation of the Year Award.
