Transformer maker expands in response to growing demand

01 July, 2022

The Stoke-on-Trent transformer manufacturer Electro-Wind has expanded its manufacturing premises across two sites and taken on extra staff in response to a growing demand for both its standard and custom-built products over the past couple of years.

The company, founded in 1979, designs and manufactures single- and three-phase transformers for customers in the UK, Europe and other markets around the world. The second-generation family owned and operated business reports that material shortages have boosted its UK manufacturing base.

By investing in stock, Electro-Wind says that is has been able not only to ensure continuity of production, but also to keep its prices as consistent as possible.

The company has a low staff turnover, with many of its employees having been with the business for more the 20 years. However, as demand has expanded in recent years, it has taken on many new recruits, including half a dozen in recent months. “We are continually looking for candidates who are passionate and committed to working in a established company with forward-thinking values, to sustain our growth and for succession planning and promotion,” says director, Rachel Stanley-Cooper.
