Powersystems the early days

When the two founding partners Derek Earby and Mike Wilsmore were working for the Midlands Electricity Board as specialist engineers, they saw a gap in the market for a private company to provide high voltage electrical services. In the early days providing services to local business such as Lister Petter Ltd., Rolls Royce and British Aerospace. Registering as the first Independent Connection Provider (ICP) in 1997 enabled the company to complete grid connections, previously only carried out by Distribution Network Operators (DNO).

Powersystems became an employee-owned business in 2019 when an Employee Owned Trust (EOT) purchased the company form Derek Earby and Stuart Wilsmore.

Take a look at our history timeline.
