Watford MP Dean Russell visits Prism Power for factory tour

Prism Power Group was pleased to welcome Watford's MP Dean Russell for a tour of the factory

Last week, MP for Watford Dean Russell visited local power solutions provider Prism Power Group. The Watford-based family business formed in 2005 provides fully certified power systems that can be bespoke engineered to meet any scale, specification or requirement. The company's services include the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of power infrastructure solutions for organisations locally, nationally and worldwide. 

Over past few months, Prism Power has continued to operate its factory to fulfil several critical projects across the healthcare, the police service, laboratory research facilities and IT. These have included orders for organisations within the UK and in mainland Europe, including a large critical data facility in Germany. 

During his visit, Dean had a tour of the factory and was shown how Prism Power designs and manufactures its systems, particularly under newly imposed social distancing and sanitisation measures, so that its recent essential orders could be fulfilled with the highest regard for the welfare of staff and clients through the coronavirus crisis.

Keith Hall, Managing Director for Prism Power Group, discussed with Dean the upcoming future opportunities for the business both locally and overseas, and the recent upsurge of containerised solution production, which allows for an entire power infrastructure solution to be manufactured and installed off-site at Prism Power’s factory and delivered to the client as a complete ready-to-use modular solution. This saves the client vital time and expense, while limiting the need for social contact.

While we are currently living in challenging times, Prism PowerGroup is keen to drive a proactive approach and to support the growth of the local economy. To help steer this incentive, Prism Power has recently joined the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce so that the company can look forward to discovering new prospects and networking opportunities. The company is also continuing its popular Engineering Apprentice Scheme this month in partnership with West Herts College as it looks to recruit September 2020’s cohort of enthusiastic and talented young engineers of the future.

Keith Hall said:

“It has been a pleasure to invite MP Dean Russell to our manufacturing company and demonstrate our products, showing how we have navigated through the past through recent challenging months of the global pandemic. We have been fortunate to keep our factory going under stricter safety practices, and I am proud of our team who have continued to meet orders of our clients who fall under the group of essential infrastructure organisations. Now, as businesses across all industry sectors work towards returning to their full capacity under a new normality, we are doing everything we can to support our entire range of clients including schools, retail, commercial and leisure industries, who are gradually getting their operations back on track.

Dean Russell said:

“I always enjoy visiting local businesses and it was brilliant to tour the factory and meet the staff. It was interesting to see how they’ve adapted to the coronavirus crisis. I look forward to visiting them again in the future.”
