The Markon Engineering company started in the village of Market Overton in1959 by Messrs Fawkes and Knight before moving to nearby Oakham in 1960.

Markon manufactured a range of products from small 2-pole units rated from 2kVA-10kVA and larger 4-pole units up to 1875kVA. Although 6 pole units were also manufactured, they were most known for their 2-pole alternators and had a strong brand reputation as a result.

  • 2-pole B21 (Capacitor controlled in an aluminium frame)
