Powersystems UK Ltd are pleased to announce that as from 2nd January 2019 we are now an employee owned business. This marks a new chapter in the history for Powersystems UK and ensures a continuing legacy for the company based upon its original founders engineering ethos and family values. This positive step will further empower all employees in ensuring the business continues to flourish delivering high quality and engineering excellence within the High Voltage sector.

The employee owned business (EOB) follows a similar model to that of the John Lewis Partnership with all employees of Powersystems becoming “Powersystems partners”. This model will ensure the long-term stability of the company ownership and be a driver for greater performance and productivity throughout the business.
