How 35 Years of Experience Makes shentongroup The UK’s Leading Force in Continuous Power

Since installing its first diesel generator in 1982, shentongroup has listened to its clients to develop into being the UK’s Leading Technical Experts in Standby Power, Uninterruptible Power Supplies and Combined Heat & Power Systems. Celebrating its 35th year in business, as founder Richard Meek steps down to a two day week, passing control to the capable hands of the next generation, 2017 is set to be yet another year of innovation and growth for shentongroup.

dsc00285By 1987, the company’s signature Scorpion Power Systems were gaining recognition for their outstanding quality standby and prime power generation and by 1989, the company signed its first contract with the Ministry of Defense, supplying the British Army throughout the Gulf conflict.

With the maintenance and support side of the business flourishing, demand called for the establishment of Merlin Power Management, encompassing a nationwide network of engineers offering a 24 hour, seven days-per-week emergency response service.

Founder Richard Meek elaborated on his company’s growth: “By 2003 we acquired a national HV and LV switchgear company, broadening our power failure management capabilities. We were now providing our clients with a much more complete service offering”. Richard added; “To cater for smaller sites that might lack space for a permanent generator set, in 2004 we launched Power Call, the UK’s first and only fixed cost, emergency generator call-out system”.

DSC01006As the world began to switch onto the numerous benefits of Combined Heat and Power, shentongroup launched Powertherm CHP systems and the company is the sole authorised UK and Ireland distributor of Tedom, the leading European CHP system manufacturer.

On his company’s continued growth, Richard Meek continued: “Following further acquisitions in 2008 and 2009, in 2010 we merged Scorpion Power Systems, Merlin Power Management and Power Call to become Shenton Global LLP, trading under the now widely recognised brand name of shentongroup”. On the future of shentongroup Richard announced: “As we continue to grow year-on-year, 2017 sees a younger, passionate generation driving shentongroup forward, building on our brand’s reputation as the UK’s Leading Technical Experts in Standby Power, Uninterruptible Power Supplies and Combined Heat and Power Systems”.

shentongroup attributes much of its success to its staff. Comprising highly qualified and dedicated team members, a culture of client focus, team-wide support, accountability and attention to detail ensures shentongroup supplies more and more satisfied clients.
