A business that specialises in the design and manufacture of large-scale generators has moved to new premises in Daventry.

Musgrave Generators, which was established in 1970 in Wigston, Leicestershire, has moved to a unit on Drayton Fields Industrial Estate in the town, and has said it hopes the move will allow it to take on more staff.

The business, which was founded by Bill Musgrave, designs, manufactures and maintains diesel generators, which are sold to customers across the UK.

Commenting on the move, managing director Graham Buckman said: “In order to support our strategic growth plans, it became necessary for us to find premises that would allow the business to expand.

“These premises are ideal and will allow us to seek new business development opportunities and take on further staff.”

Funding for the move was provided in the form of a commercial mortgage by Barclays.

Senior business manager at Barclays Katie Ryden said: “Musgrave Generators identified the need to acquire larger premises in order to grow their business. Having once been occupied by a food manufacturing business, the premises were ready to move straight into which allowed the company to limit any disruption to their business.”

The company was visited recently by local MP Chris Heaton-Harris, who said: “It was great to see another example of a business coming to Daventry.

“I had a great visit to Musgrave and look forward to working with the business in the coming months and years.”
