To cater for its growing customer base in the UK, WhisperPower BV has set up its own dedicated national sales and service centre in South Yorkshire using experienced staff from a previous distributor.
WhisperPower, the leading Netherlands-based manufacturer of ultra-quiet off-grid power electronics is delighted to announce a new sales and service centre for the United Kingdom. Previously, the distribution and sales support of a wide portfolio of generators, inverters, battery chargers and hybrid-style power systems were organised through the Webasto network, a partnership that has been very fruitful for both WhisperPower and Webasto UK Ltd.
As a consequence of this, with an increasing order book and a much larger market share, WhisperPower has taken the UK operation in-house and has set up a dedicated new office in Sheffield, a historic engineering town in the North of England.
Both Webasto UK and WhisperPower have worked closely together to ensure a seamless transition for their customers, who will now have the advantage of dealing directly with the manufacturers. All sales enquiries and any servicing or warranty issues currently being handled by Webasto will be passed to the new UK office.
Speaking for Webasto, Commercial Manager David Stafford said, "We are proud of our role in establishing WhisperPower as a major power generation supplier in both automotive and marine in the UK. We wish WhisperPower UK all the best for the future."
Heading up the new operation is Technical Director Chris Autey, a highly experienced electrical engineer with a long track record in power electronics. Chris has worked on many specialised WhisperPower installations across several sectors during his career, and is able to advise on the ideal combination of products for both land-based and marine applications.
The new UK office will open on 1st October 2020 and joins WhisperPower's growing international technical team, which has also seen a new office recently established in Germany and Southern Europe. Chris has described his role as 'reacting quickly to customers’ needs’ and providing a wide range of off-grid power solutions, from standard plug-and-play installations to advanced custom designs or fully containerised units.
WhisperPower UK will be overseen by the Netherlands-based headquarters, offering strong technical support. UK customers will also be able to order equipment and service items on-line via the shop - shop.whisperpower.com
Roel J ter Heide, WhisperPower's founder and CEO, is delighted with the new arrangement. "Over the last 30 years, we have developed from a generator company into an innovative powerhouse offering all sorts of solutions to the marine and mobile markets," he said. "WhisperPower is a trendsetter and since 2010 has focused on the development, production and supply of smart systems to deliver electricity in places where there is no dependable grid power. The new UK office will be able to provide our customers there with a wide range of complimentary products, always with the focus on silent, non-polluting and renewable sources of power."
