Star Power and Star Platforms back expansion with new joint HQ

Star Power has joined forces with sister company Star Platforms to open a new head office that allows them to collaborate on delivering the best possible services to customers.

The new head office, in Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire, is strategically located to benefit both businesses and to support their continued rapid growth.

Teams from critical power specialist Star Power and powered access hire specialist Star Platforms will benefit from working together at the site, with a total workforce of more than 50 people.

Seamless service

Key functions being shared include financial control, IT, marketing, human resources and procurement, allowing faster and more effective decision-making.

Ultra-modern facilities, including fast-charging for electric vehicles and the latest digital information sharing systems, will benefit both work teams and customers.

Star Power’s Head of Power, Paul Ridley, said: “By bringing the two businesses together, we will be perfectly placed to drive growth, to deliver our exceptional service and value to more customers.

“Seamless and cost-efficient back-office support will underpin sales and service teams who will be better able to work together to  ensure customers have full and transparent access to our range of products and services.”

Workplace collaboration

Star Platforms Managing Director Richard Miller said the new head office makes both businesses “fit for the future”, adding: “This represents an exciting time for both businesses as we continue to grow and expand our reach across the UK.

“We believe in the importance of social interaction and collaboration in the workplace, which have become even more critical in recent years.

“The new office has been designed to bring teams together, and make it easier for colleagues to connect and communicate with each other, and with our customers.”

Located next to the M1, the new head office has excellent transport links to help key personnel visit clients and worksites, and customers and suppliers to visit the two businesses.

An official opening, with invited guests, will take place in the summer.
