A PEMBROKE Dock company, which has exclusive UK rights to international brand Hyundai, was recently praised by Paul Davies AM when he visited its headquarters.

GenPower, based at Isaac Way, just off London Road, has seen huge expansion over the 13 years it has been in operation and now employs 50 people.

GenPower was incorporated in September 2006 by husband and wife team Roland and Lisa Llewellin. For a decade GenPower has been working with global company Hyundai, and now has exclusive rights to the Hyundai brand in the United Kingdom and Ireland. In addition, GenPower also distributes Hyundai products to a number of countries in Africa.

The product range includes lawn mowers, pressure washers, generators and water pumps to name just a few.

A retail outlet now operates from the headquarters.

Paul Davies AM said: “I was hugely impressed to see the scale of the GenPower operation. The 120,000 square foot building is a hive of activity with stock being shipped out to customers. GenPower has invested in the manner that stock is despatched, and the speed and efficiency that products are readied for transporting to customers was evident during my visit.”

“I am hugely impressed that the company now employ 50 staff and want to expand further. It is fantastic that they trade from Pembrokeshire, and are clearly putting Pembrokeshire on the map on a global scale. I wish GenPower well for future expansion.”
