Ener-G embarks on major headquarters expansion
Sustainable-power business Ener-G is to double the size of its office accommodation and boost manufacturing space by 25% with a new 1200 m2 building at its global headquarters in Greater Manchester. The £2 million building is due to open in December 2010 and is being built on a site next to Ener-G House in Salford. It will enable Ener-G to keep pace with worldwide demand for its renewable and energy-efficient technologies. The group’s turnover last year was £125 million, of which 47% was due to exports.
The space for manufacturing will increase from 3100 m2 to more than 3900 m2. The extra space will be used to produce a new energy-efficient management control system developed in-house.
Over the last two years, the company has boosted production of its CHP and biogas generator units by 50%.
Group managing director Derek Duffill, says, ‘Our innovative products and services are in demand across the globe — fuelling powerful growth that is reflected in a rapid rise in turnover and the need to expand our main site in Salford.’
