Gresham Power Electronics recognises 30 years of service of a key employee


Gresham Power Electronics, the Salisbury based Defence and Commercial power conversion specialist, has a history of retaining members of staff for long periods of their working lives by providing a friendly and rewarding working environment.

This is certainly true for Lois Shering, their Power Supply Department Administrator, who has now worked for the company for thirty years. Lois has grown up with the company and has got engaged, married and had a child who is now 18 while working there.

“Gresham has not only supported me over the last 30 years but has also greatly helped my daughter Nicole by being her main sponsor for her passion of ski racing “says Lois.

Lois’ daughter Nicole holds a number of British Ski Academy GBR Series indoor and outdoor championships and currently holds the top prize on the dry slope circuit of being the female “Zero” point racer.

Lois continues, “I have met and worked with many lovely people on my journey, some have come and gone while others are enjoying long service at Gresham like myself. The technology of business has certainly moved on, when I first started here commerce was carried out by telex, then fax and now by email. Power supply design and development has changed greatly over the years with constantly evolving technology and we strive to meet customer’s ongoing demands for quality, competitive prices, shorter lead-times and great after sales service.”

Jake Moir, Managing Director of Gresham Power Electronics, comments, “Lois has developed great working relationships with key customer accounts and suppliers over the many years she has been with us. This level of continuous support and her deep knowledge of our products and customers is appreciated by all.”
