Pole Star Timeline
Growing every year with great confidence and amazing customer feedback we are looking forward to the future. Plans are already underway for yet further stock level increases, broader product ranges and greater representation.
After decades in the industry originally with AO Smith in Gainsborough, followed by being an owner and Sales Direct at REMCO and then finally a Director and co-founder of Pole Star David Cowood retires.
We experience tremendous growth in the wake of the split from Elco, our reputation and service meant many of our former Elco customers.
Elco Direct bought out by Regal Beloit, resisting a buyout too Pole Star Products goes it alone!
Due to space restrictions we relocate to a 30,000sq ft warehouse in Bardney, outside of Lincoln. The new space enables us to quickly increase our stock levels, process orders faster and work generally more efficiently.
We expand to five small warehouse units in Scunthope with a total size of 9,000sq ft.
Pole Star Products was formed along with Elco Direct Limited as a joint venture with Elco Spa (Italy)
