Power Hire – Visions Group Expands its Reach
We have expanded our power division with the purchase of Slough based RS Power Solutions Ltd, a leading power hire company in the entertainments industry with an established trading history.
The acquisition of RS Power will enable us to further expand the number of clients and events we can service with power equipment as well as target new markets with this offering.
Managing Director, Chris Norman comments “this acquisition is such a positive step for Visions Group. We have organically grown the power hire side of our business until now and are looking forward to making more direct steps to grow our power hire clientele both direct with the end user and through intermediaries such as other hire companies. It was imperative we acquired a business with quality equipment and an excellent reputation for service delivery and RS Power is just that.”
RS Power Solutions will continue to trade as a standalone business with the Sales and Marketing team at Visions helping them to drive the business forward.
About Visions Group power hire:
Visions already has an extensive stock of power distribution equipment, cable, ancillary lighting, emergency lighting and generator equipment, therefore are well placed to manage projects of all sizes. We have a fleet of towing vehicles to deliver generators where they are required and we can control fuel management using our road tow bowsers.
Visions can service clients in locations throughout the UK and Europe for outdoor events such as festivals and shows, indoor event including conferences, awards dinner, exhibition or party – in fact any event that needs to incorporate power either from the mains or a generator Visions can manage it for you – including the ever so important BS7909 sign-off for temporary events (find out more here).
What is BS 7909
Simply put BS 7909 is a standard that all event organisers specifying temporary power at their events need to be aware of. It asks that the Event Manager, Owner, Promoter, Organiser etc puts someone that is suitably qualified in charge of overseeing the electrical system, that person will be known as the SPR (Senior Person Responsible) – Visions Group can be your SPR.
