Year of growth
Turnover hits record at Edinburgh Boiler Company
Mark Glasgow: a range of challenges
A year of unprecedented growth saw the Edinburgh Boiler Company report a record turnover of £4.4 million.
The figure for the 12 months to the end of September represents a rise of 134% on last year’s figure (£1.87m).
It has enabled significant investment across different areas of the business, including expansion into Glasgow.
The firm welcomed 12 recruits during the period, taking the headcount to 36. The additional staff included a quality control manager, field manager and operations manager. The company also expanded its fleet of vehicles by 11 to meet rising demand across the cities.
The Edinburgh Boiler Company was proactive in its response to the challenges posed by the pandemic, investing £50,000 in portable workstations to allow engineers to work remotely.
The past 12 months also saw the business move into a larger headquarters in the city, the new premises also housing the Energy Training Academy where it is training engineers in renewables technology.
