Export Tracks rack up for UK business

The ever-growing UK diesel generator business has stuck a remarkable third listing Export Track award in the Sunday Times.

The list – which highlights Britain’s fastest-growing private export businesses – is hard enough to become part of once. Selling a range of spare parts like AVRs the business has gone from strength to strength. Few businesses win such a high accolade three years running – the company now even has its own iOS App!

Given the success of the business over the last few years, it’s hardly surprising. Since being taken over by the third generation of the Farrow Family, Charlie Farrow, the current managing director, has transformed the business, introducing a range of modern processes and equipment to reduce the labour cost – something that is expensive in UK markets to make Welland Power more cost-competitive than many of its competitors overseas with their range of Cummins and Perkins powered diesel generators.

This drive for cost competitions has seen the factory expand into its current site in Spalding in Lincolnshire and buy additional equipment such as CNC machinery and additional heavy handling equipment to make the processes faster.

New ranges also help after investment and research. Equally important is an investment in its employees to increase quality, improve first-time test pass rates and structure the business to handle every eventuality.

John Farrow, former managing director of the family-owned firm commented, “It’s great to see the success that has come after passing the business onto my Son Charlie Farrow. The hard work and commitment to the business he puts in, following my years of dedication have been key in achieving this award and making the business the modern manufacturing business it currently is today.”
