Our core values
Family Run Business
Shenton Group is the continuous power industry leader with family-owned business values. Founded by Richard Meek back in 1982, by 1984 the Scorpion Power Systems brand rapidly became synonymous with reliable standby power. Merging a number of brands under the Shenton Group name in 2010, the family-run business is now managed by Richard’s sons; Jody Meek Chief Operating Officer, Curtis Meek Chief Executive Officer and Darren Meek Sales Manager – Service.
Additionally the C-Suite team has expanded to include Derek Barry, Chief Technical Officer, Craig Lewendon Chief Financial Officer and Tara Lawson Chief People Officer.
Happy Healthy Staff
Family is about giving: Giving to colleagues, clients and community. Here at Shenton Group we have created happy working environments that include investments into break out areas and we heavily promote a happy and healthy workforce environment. Employees are provided with fruit, cereal, bread, cheese, ham, eggs, tomatoes and more as no-one works well on an empty stomach.
Duty of Care
When members of staff have been taken by illness, Shenton Group have taken an approach that supports individuals on their route to recovery and introducing them back into the workplace gradually and looks at every case separately.
