Going for growth
From its beginnings as a one-man operation in 1999, FRANCEPOWER has grown into a thriving business, now employing 18 people at its base in Hazebrouck, a town in the Nord department in France.

The company specialises in products such as generators, welding sets and water pumps. FRANCEPOWER offers its customers a wide choice of models, each with a range of options to meet different requirements.
Looking ahead to the rest of 2014, FRANCEPOWER is introducing a new range of garden products such as sprayers, pruners and augers, all equipped with the Kawasaki TJ Series Engines.
Over the next five years, Dominique plans to develop his range of domestic garden products.
