Fantastic news this week as Genpower, the UK importer for Hyundai Power Equipment learned that we had been selected as a finalist in the South Wales Chamber of Commerce's annual business awards. It is a huge honour for us to be selected as a finalist for these awards, which essentially recognise excellence and stability in business, helping to grow in a still very difficult economic climate, and we are very happy to be flying the flag for Welsh businesses everywhere.

The category entered is the most competitive and prestigious category - Most Promising Growth Business, which received a bumper entry this year from some very high flying competition.
Genpower has seen rapid growth over the last two years and have aggressive growth plans in place for 2014 and 2015, with turnover set to more than double. The company has just agreed a deal to move to new larger premises and this will see staff levels increase from 22 to 57 over the next two years. The main focus is on the exclusive distribution in the UK and Ireland of Hyundai Power Equipment and Garden Machinery. The Hyundai brand continues to go from strength to strength Worldwide and the power equipment and garden machinery sector is no exception, with customers benefiting from good solid quality machines at true value for money prices.
Genpower plan to increase the Hyundai Power Equipment dealer network from 80 to 300 outlets nationwide by the end of 2014. There are also many new and innovative products in the pipeline with some of these being manufactured at the new facility in Pembrokeshire for export worldwide.
"This is a very exciting time for Genpower and the move to the new premises will allow us room to grow the Hyundai brand in the UK and Ireland and become a major player in the UK Power Equipment market.
