Dieselec Thistle Generators (DTG), the UK’s leading generator specialist, has announced a successful year and a 10% further growth expected by its financial year end in June. The business saw a spectacular growth in the UK health sector, as well as a boost in its export market and a high volume of ordered for standard generator sets.
“We have developed a strong track record in delivering large NHS energy centre projects to the UK health sector including installations at the Royal Hospital for Children and New Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow; The Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital in Cramlington and West Cumberland Hospital, during 2017. With a further £4m of new business and work already in progress at the Midland Metropolitan Hospital, University Hospital of North Tees, East Lothian Hospital and Orkney Hospital, our power solutions team is technically expert in this area, and it has really gathered momentum,” said Paul Moore, Managing Director at DTG.
Due to the exchange rate, the overseas sales are also growing and overall, the company can now re-invest in the addition of a hire fleet for temporary power requirements. Other future plans include the installation of TomTom WebFleet technology and improving staff training and development.
As the new year rolls in, the business is constantly increasing its stock levels to make sure there is better availability and the customers’ demand is fully satisfied. While building on its success in the existing markets, DTG hopes to identify new opportunities in other emerging markets as well.
DTG supplies, installs, and maintains diesel generators, providing products, support, and advice throughout the life cycle of a customer’s generator set. It operates from its headquarters in Glasgow, where an 80,000 square feet warehouse space accommodates workshops, a distribution depot, the largest stock of generators in the UK, and the biggest load test cell in the country.
