Vision & Values

Our Vision

To provide the most trusted energy solutions, in an unpredictable world.

Culture is not something that you can see, hear or smell, but it is certainly something you can feel.

A culture runs the whole way through an organisation from the way we treat each other to the way we serve our clients. A culture is created when a team of people support a common goal, with shared values and principals.

Shenton Staff

Our core values

Family

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 Managing Director, Curtis Meek Sales and Marketing Director and Darren Meek Director, as well as Derek Barry, the company’s Technical Director.

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.

Project Fit & Quality Assurance

To ensure the utmost quality and end-results for our clients, we would never embark on a project we deemed to be too high risk, nor one that we felt didn’t fit our ethos and competencies. With quality in mind, and best solutions as part of our core values, if another company was a better fit, we would certainly advise that.
