New HQ for expanding Edinburgh Boiler Company
Growth: Mark Glasgow
The Edinburgh Boiler Company, the biggest installer in the city, has moved to new headquarters in Dalkeith to meet a surge in demand and provide space for its first training facility.
The 4,000 sq ft office is four times larger than the company’s previous home and will provide room for further growth.
The company has expanded from eight employees to 30 since its launch in 2015 and the new HQ will house the firm’s Energy Training Academy, the first of a series of such learning centres which managing director Mark Glasgow plans to establish throughout Scotland in a bid to address the skills shortage in the sector.
“Moving premises gives us a good foundation to expand into the other areas we are focusing on, particularly the training academy and renewables,” he said.
New offices are four times bigger
“We thought the original base was big enough at the time but due to our growth, we had to look at a bigger headquarters.
“We can now grow into this space, which is ideal for the business plan going forward. The larger space will also allow us to implement inventory and stock control, helping us to do jobs more quickly such as same-day boiler installations and repairs.
“The staff are able to streamline a lot of processes which helps us further improve our customer service with increased efficiency.”
