Invertek Drives jumps up 17 places in 2012 Fast Growth 50 Awards.

Invertek Drives has moved up 17 places since the 2011 Fast Growth 50 Awards, having significantly increased turnover in the last financial year.

Invertek Drives Ltd is dedicated to the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic variable speed drives for controlling electric motors. Its state of the art UK headquarters houses specialist facilities for research & development, manufacturing and global marketing and its products are sold in more than 65 countries worldwide.

Sales and Marketing Director, Rhydian Welson, says, “We’re delighted to have achieved such a high ranking in this year’s Fast Growth 50 Awards. We’ve always been proud of our Welsh heritage and our ranking in these respected awards is testimony to the fact that we’re up there amongst some of the highest performing businesses in the country.”"

The independently owned company was established in 1998 by the current directors and has experienced an average 28% year on year growth fuelled by global demand – approximately 95% of its output is destined for export markets. Invertek Drives currently employs more than 130 people at its Welshpool headquarters and produced over 100,000 drives last year.

The ambitious company is currently gearing up for the largest trade show in the industry’s calendar, SPS, taking place in Nuremburg in November. Welson continues, “Invertek has invested a significant amount, not only in product development and facilities, but also in marketing and after-sales support. This financial commitment has spearheaded the considerable growth the company experienced last year, and we’re confident the upward trend is set to continue into the next financial year.”

Now in their 14th year, The Fast Growth 50 Awards aim to promote the development of business growth in Wales. Invertek Drives is located on Offas Dyke Business Park and has increased its facilities in recent years to accommodate its ever expanding workforce.
