Invertek Drives creates new jobs as expansion continues
Welshpool-based Invertek Drives is recruiting more production staff as it continues to expand following record growth.
The company, which designs and manufactures variable frequency drives (VFD) for the control of electric motors, has reported record sales and growth in 2020 and the first quarter of 2021.
Last month, it produced its two millionth VFD and is already expanding its research & development and innovation teams as part of its growth strategy.
This month, it began recruiting more production staff at its global manufacturing and assembly facility in Buttington, near Welshpool, Powys.
Roles now being recruited include assembly production operatives and a logistics operative, enabling the company to cope with demand for its products globally.
Rhydian Welson, sales and marketing director at Invertek, said: “We export around 90 per cent of our VFDs and demand globally has been phenomenal. Our drives create accurate motor control which leads to energy savings in the applications they are used in. With more regulations coming globally to cut CO2 emissions, businesses are looking at ways to cut these as well as reducing energy usage and costs.
“We’re recruiting more production operatives to cater for this demand. This is in addition to the investment we’re making in our R&D teams to create ever more efficient VFD technology.”
The company employs 240 staff at its global headquarters in Welshpool and around 270 globally. Products are exported globally to more than 80 countries through a network of sales partners.
