A North East-based independent electrical materials distributor is targeting trebling its turnover as it expands its presence in the energy sector.

Power Wholesale Ltd achieved sales of £13m from its five UK branches, the company aims to hit £30m turnover in the next five years as it increases its activity across all 12 divisions of the company’s business portfolio.

Based in Dunston, Gateshead where it recently opened a new head office, the company is also aiming to increase its exports of specialist electrical products to sectors such as oil and gas, petrochemicals and offshore wind from £2m to £10m by 2026.

It then expanded further to distribute specialist electrical material distributors to the trade, domestic, industrial, oil and gas, petrochemical and renewable energy sectors serving customers from its branches in Dunston, Cramlington, Teesside, Nottingham and Southampton.

The company, which is a member of energy sector business development organisation NOF, also has plans to double its branch network in the next few years with a new e-commerce operation set to go live before the end of the year.

This will include new technology and product lines such as EV charge points, Smart Home systems, solar panel and battery storage.

Neil Cornish, managing director of Power Wholesale, said: “By continually evolving the business we have delivered continued growth, which we aim to maintain with our strategy to become more involved in the supply chain that is supporting the energy transition.

“With a growing branch network and increased export activity we are playing an active part in supporting the innovation within the sector that will help deliver a low-carbon future.”

“At NOF we work closely with companies like Power Wholesale to increase their visibility within the energy sector and increase their knowledge of market activity, which can provide them with the opportunities to contribute to the energy transition while delivering upon its growth strategy.”
