StarDelta was formed in 2003 by Malcolm Martin and has rapidly grown into a serious player in the electro-mechanical repair, sales and services market from their base in Grimsby. They provide a full range of motors, on-site services, and of course, 24-hour call-out for their clients.
Location: Grimsby, Lincs.
System: EMIR Standard System
Malcolm is well known in the industry after spending many years at E.A. Wright’s and then GEC Alsthom, and latterly ALSTOM in Grimsby. It was during his time at GEC that Malcolm came across EMIR and truly appreciated its applicability to the business and moreover, it ease of use. This became even more apparent to him, when due to the French takeover of GEC Alsthom, their EMIR system was replaced by another system which was definitely less applicable and user-friendly!
As Malcolm says, “When EMIR was introduced as part of the takeover by GEC, we were hopeful that it would be an improvement on the largely paper-based system that was in place, and we were delighted with it from day one. It gave us the important information we needed to manage jobs and did it in an easy, logical, and user-friendly way. In short, it worked the way we did, and we made good use of the system.”
When Malcolm decided he was to leave ALSTOM and start his own business, he was delighted to find he could purchase EMIR and was pleasantly surprised to see the advances that had been made to the system.

Malcolm installed EMIR at the inception of StarDelta, and has simply not looked back. He has managed to grow his business substantially, exceeding his initial expectations, with only one full-time administrator, and this has been possible by making full use of the EMIR system from day one. At present (Dec 2015) Star Delta are turning over around 350 jobs a month, all tracked through the EMIR application. We are sure that with Malcolm’s drive and experience they will continue to prosper, and we wish them all the best for the future.
As Malcolm explains, “I had absolutely no hesitation in installing EMIR at StarDelta. I was delighted that EMIR was available, and that it was still the simple and user-friendly software that I remembered. It has been key to allowing us to control a business that has grown rapidly, and it has really been a great help and provided me with piece of mind, and of course, the necessary figures I need to manage my business.”
