Celebrating Heritage and Embracing the Future
Interview with Ann Brown, Managing Director of FG Wilson
Tell us a bit about the history of FG Wilson?
We were founded in 1966 by Fred Wilson. A true entrepreneur, Fred saw opportunity for generator sets amid the economic chaos of the early 1970s, and in the 1980s, under the leadership of his son Tom, FG Wilson was among the first to bring mass-scale production to generator sets, launching self-contained generator sets which were simple to buy and operate and were easy to install.
They say it's important to be in the right place at the right time but equally important is how you act when you see that opportunity. Both Fred and Tom had the vision and the willpower to make the most of the position they were in.
