From zero to £5 million in five years for solar-energy specialist
Solar-energy specialist Eco2Solar, based in Kidderminster, has marked the end of its fifth year with record year-end figures, yet again. This year’s turnover is expected to exceed £5 million, four times that of the previous financial year. This family-run business was set up by managing director Paul Hutchens and has grown rapidly since 2007.
Over the last five years, the company has completed well over a thousand installations for private homes and commercial properties.
The firm’s success is underlined by the volume of commercial business on its books with leading local names like Mansell Construction, The Environment Agency, Birmingham City Council, Thomas Vale and South Warwickshire NHS Trust.
Paul Hutchens says, ‘We have an ambitious 5-year strategic plan to invest in more technologies, new-build housing and the Government’s Green Deal. Ultimately, it is our goal to be the leading UK small-scale energy company.’
