Trust Electric Heating, a Garforth-based company, has invested more than £150k into doubling its premises, following its remarkable success in 2023. The new premises, which include a 2000 sq ft unit in addition to the existing office, will support the company’s growing team, operations, and innovation initiatives for 2024. This strategic move will not only enhance manufacturing processes, but also establish development rooms for testing, research, and dedicated spaces for innovation. As of September 2023, the company’s workforce has doubled from 18 to 32 employees, and this month, seven more team members will join the company across different areas of expertise.
Scott Conor, the company’s Founder and Head Engineer, was awarded a place at a prestigious Design Engineering Innovation Lab, which contributed towards developing new technologies for creating net zero heating solutions and facilitating a faster roll-out of decarbonised heat for buildings. Moreover, Fiona Conor, the Managing Director of Trust Electric Heating, believes that this investment will significantly expand the company’s manufacturing capacities, enhance its reach in new markets, and enable it to bring new innovations to the market more quickly.
Additionally, the company has committed to revolutionising energy consumption practices in the UK by developing smart, sustainable electric heating technologies and meeting the increasing demand for energy-efficient heating systems, especially from commercial building developers, owners, and managers. Trust Electric Heating has forecasted a fourfold increase in turnover by the end of 2024, totalling £5m.
Trust Electric Heating was founded in 2015 and launched its first innovation, the NEOS electric radiator, in 2017. The radiator was designed to provide consistent heat more sustainably and cost-effectively than its competitors. The NEOS electric radiator is 290% more conductive and 59.4% more effective than other electric radiators on the market and has a lifespan of up to 250% longer.
Finally, Trust Electric Heating will present an exclusive study in Australia later this year, which will present the findings of a 3-year Knowledge Transfer Partnership with the University of Huddersfield. The study aims to investigate the thermal performance of the NEOS radiator and to understand its temperature distribution.
