Secretary Of State Officially Opens EnviroVent’s New Distribution Centre
EnviroVent, a leader in the manufacture of energy efficient and sustainable domestic ventilation products, was delighted to welcome the Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, to mark the official opening of the new EnviroVent distribution centre in Harrogate on July 28.
Going from strength to strength, the company’s continuous and rapid growth has led to the expansion of a new distribution centre to give EnviroVent the space to increase its product lines and respond to demand quickly, while also creating new jobs in the local area.
The company’s continued investment into R&D is fundamental to its growth. Over the last decade, ventilation technology has evolved in line with new legislation to improve energy efficiency and the demand for technologies such as heat recovery systems has risen sharply.
The success of new innovations will not only contribute to growth but will also secure the company’s financial future. One of EnviroVent’s latest innovations, the heatSava, is a through the wall Single Room Heat Recovery Unit ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, WCs and utility rooms in retrofit and new build projects. Designed as an energy efficient alternative to a traditional extractor fan, the heatSava recovers up to 75% of the heat that would normally be lost through extraction.
Nick Heaton, Managing Director of EnviroVent, said: “The official unveiling of EnviroVent’s new distribution centre and manufacturing facilities recognises the company’s sustained growth through tough economic times. This demonstrates that through our continued investment and commitment to developing new innovations, we have been able to expand and grow, resulting in new jobs and a boost to both the local and national economy.”
The Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, said that he was delighted to be officially opening EnviroVent’s new distribution centre, describing the business as ‘an outstanding local company’.
As one of the only domestic fan manufacturers in the UK, EnviroVent does not just sell its products straight from the assembly line. What differentiates EnviroVent from its competitors is that it is the only ventilation company in the UK to offer its customers a complete service solution from design and manufacture, to installation and after-sales service.
The company currently employs a nationwide team of fully-trained and equipped ventilation engineers; each one has an intimate knowledge of EnviroVent’s product range, and is highly experienced in the installation of ventilation solutions into many different types of construction. Named SME Manufacturer of the Year in 2013, EnviroVent has not only brought manufacturing back to Yorkshire, the company has pushed British innovation to a new level, successfully creating an additional 60 new jobs in the past 12 months, adding a welcome boost to the region’s economy.
