Alderminster Open Day
Family business Alderminster Group, opened a new Green building with a Christmas gathering of customers and business partners.
Alderminster Group, experts in electrics, gas, renewables and solar energy, marked its recent move to Shipston on Stour with an open day showcasing its new bespoke, environmentally-friendly building.
The family-run company’s new base is central to customers across Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire and only 10 minutes from Stratford and The Cotswolds. The recent move presented an opportunity for founders Paul and Maria Clack to build a bespoke, ‘green’ business premises, with room for further growth.
The new building uses an air source heat pump which provides heating and hot water. An Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) absorbs heat from outside air and releases it inside the building, as hot water-filled radiators, underfloor heating and/or hot water supply. With an Air Source Heat Pump, you can provide your own clean energy to heat your home and business too and pay less money out in energy bills to providers.
Energy generated from a solar PV car port (from January 2017) and LED lighting also provide savings to fund the running of the Group’s electric car. Founder Paul Clack, who is passionate about renewable energy, said: “We are proud to have built environmentally friendly premises powered by renewable energy and enabled cost savings to the business long term. As a family business owner, being self-sufficient and cost effective is important to me. We are working towards living the green values we support and promote to our customers.“
The Open Day on December 9th, was attended by local MP Nadhim Zahawi and 50 + local businesses and some of the Group’s customers.
People interested in saving energy costs had the chance to look around, and hear about how going green can benefit your business while having coffee and a mince pie by the Christmas tree.
Teams from Mitsubishi and Hager, two of the Group’s key suppliers, attended with business stands, along with local charity Cyclists for Cancer. A team from BMW Warwick were also on hand offering test drives in their latest electric cars.
And people could find out from the Coventry City Council Green Network team stand, about new low carbon emissions grants that will be available through EU funding for local businesses in the Coventry and Warwickshire area, looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
Maria Clack, Director at Alderminster Group, said: “ We enjoyed inviting our customers and suppliers, and people from the local and business community to see the new building. Shipston is a fantastic central location for us, we have more space than we know what to do with here and parking, with the added benefit of working in the countryside. And we have office space in our Unit next door to rent out to other local businesses too! “
“ We have grown over the past 30 years from customer referrals, on the back of our reputation of giving quality service and expert advice. Our ambitions are to increase renewable energy use and to continue to grow and employ more local people.”
