The UK’s largest supplier of heat pumps has responded to the ever-growing demand for renewable energy solutions by opening a new head office and warehouse in the North-East of England.
Go Geothermal Ltd has been able to further increase its extensive product range following the opening in September 2023 of new premises in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.
This has enabled the company, which was established in 2006, to double the size of its previous premises in Newton Aycliffe, and the new warehouse, in particular, provides it with the ability to increase its stock holding by three and half times – equating to £1.6 million worth of renewable energy products, with space to grow to £5 million.
The premises at Maple Way, Newton Aycliffe, will help Go Geothermal maximize distribution into Scotland as well as the rest of England and Wales, and is complemented by its existing commercial office in the Midlands.
The expansion of the head office forms part of Go Geothermal’s growth strategy and enables it to provide customers with even more availability and choice on products, which include air and ground source heat pumps from the world’s leading manufacturers, such as CTC, Vaillant, Viessmann, Bosch, Waterkotte, Clausius & Stiebel Eltron, as well as biomass, underfloor heating, solar, and many other renewable energy technologies.
Sean Sowden, Director of Go Geothermal, said: “With interest and demand in renewable energy products growing very quickly, largely due to Government net zero targets, it was important for us to expand our office/warehouse, so we are placed to meet this increased demand.
“We are therefore delighted to have been able to find premises which meet our needs and to have been able to retain our presence in the North-East.
“Our entire offering has evolved from working closely with our customers and we actively manage our product ranges. We continually look for innovative and market leading products which is the cornerstone of our business, and the new office/warehouse will enable us to increase this even further.”
In addition to the warehouse and offices for staff, the new premises will also house one of Go Geothermal’s national heat pump training centres, which provide installers with hands-on training and experience in the installation of its CTC brand of heat pumps. On completion, installers are awarded a nationally accredited qualification in the installation and maintenance of heat pumps.
Situated on the Aycliffe Business Park, the Maple Way commercial development is owned by Northern Trust Ltd.
Steven Porter, Regional Portfolio Manager at Northern Trust, added “I am delighted we were able to help Go Geothermal with their occupational requirements and am pleased to welcome them to Maple Way. With the Government’s Net Zero Strategy targets, and the increasing importance of renewable forms of energy I am excited to see Go Geothermal continue to grow to facilitate the increase in demand.”
