Powerstar, the market leading range of voltage optimisation products, which continues to be designed and manufactured in the UK by EMSc (UK) Ltd, is pleased to announce it is celebrating its thirteenth birthday.
Since being launched in 2001, two new, innovative, Powerstar systems have been added to the range. In 2010 Powerstar MAX was introduced as electronic-dynamic voltage optimisation, for those with fluctuating voltage or varying loads. In 2011 Powerstar HV MAX was launched as the first High Voltage side optimisation, with the addition of an amorphous core low loss transformer, ideal for companies with their own HV supply.
To ensure the company continues to remain ahead of the field throughout its ‘teens’ and well into ‘old age’, it has strengthened its management team with the appointment of a new non-executive chairman and two new directors to the board.
Stephen Hepplewhite, who joins as non-executive chairman will work alongside managing director Dr Alex Mardapittas, together with the board, on future strategies, best practice and corporate governance, as the company continues to go from strength to strength.
The two new directors, who have also become board members are, Robert Macklin who has joined the company as group finance director and David Taylor a consulting engineer within the energy sector.
