A Worcestershire solar energy firm has moved into larger new offices after a year of growth created 12 new jobs.
Eco2Solar has moved into larger offices and a warehouse in Kidderminster after outgrowing its previous unit.
Eco2Solar managing director Paul Hutchens said the acquisition of more space on the Hoo Farm Industrial Estate was part of plans to continue its recruitment drive long into the future.
Mark Garnier, MP for the Wyre Forest declared the new offices officially open with a short speech expressing his pleasure at seeing a local business performing so admirably in the current economic climate.
He said: “This type of alternative energy production is extremely important. It is great to see that we have a company in the centre of the Wyre Forest specialising in this area – making it relevant right here, right now.
"Businesses like Eco2Solar will make the difference as to how the economy grows in the future.”
Eco2Solar is one of the UK’s leading suppliers and installers of solar energy systems, which help reduce the carbon footprint of homes, offices, hospitals, universities, leisure centres, swimming pools, schools and businesses across the UK.
