20 Years

Celebrating 20 Years in Business

Adept Power Solutions (APS) is turning 20! Founded in 2003 by Iain and Julia Mackay, and since then the company has grown from a small start-up to a leading provider of Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) & Generator Solutions.

The Beginnings

Our founders identified a need for a more comprehensive customer-led service in the backup power market. They started the company in Andover, Hampshire, with a small team of engineers and technicians, and quickly began developing innovative solutions that fulfilled the needs of their clients and partners.

APS has since expanded its product offerings and customer base. The company now covers the whole of the mainland UK and has also completed work across various parts of Europe. Now serving thousands of customers in a variety of industries, from large data centres to retail and the medical sectors.

APS is committed to providing its customers with the best possible backup power solutions and services from beginning to end. From a free site survey through to maintenance, Adept Power Solutions is a one-stop-shop for all your backup power needs.

Marc Cresswell, the company’s Sales & Commercial Director, expressed his pride in APS's achievements, stating that the company is "extremely grateful to its employees, customers, and partners for all their incredible support over the last two decades. Adept Power Solutions is excited to continue to grow and innovate in the years to come."
