Eco Environments launches wholesale division

Renewable energy company Eco Environments has launched a wholesale division by announcing partnerships with two major German manufacturers.

The company has secured prestigious northern regional distributorship agreements with K2 Systems and WINAICO.

K2 Systems develops mounting systems for solar technology, while WINAICO manufactures some of the world’s most advanced solar photovoltaic panels.

David Hunt, a director with Eco Environments, said: “We are thrilled to have been selected by two such prominent solar technology manufacturers as their northern regional distributors.

“Eco Environments’ new wholesale division complements the other areas of our business and is something we are keen to develop further over the coming months.

“As well as selling all individual panels, inverters and components, the wholesale division will be selling full PV kits for smaller installers, providing technical and design support as part of the service. An online ordering system will be live within weeks, enabling busy installers to order at any time of day or night.”

Stuart Woodman, UK sales manager for K2 Systems, said: “We are pleased to be represented in the Northern region by Eco Environments. We were looking for someone with a good reputation and great experience within the PV market. Partnering with Eco Environments is a great business choice and will enable us to increase our UK market share for solar mounting solutions.”

Gary Fuller, UK sales director for WINAICO, said: “Partnering with Eco Environments was an easy decision. As a business, they are passionate about quality, good service and their reputation. They have a team of professional staff who will be able to provide the UK market with an unrivalled service and ultimately provide solutions for installers without compromising on quality.”

Eco Environments is led by its three directors, Mike Clarke, David Hunt and Mark Buchanan, and employs 54 people. It is on course to increase turnover from £1.4million to £5million during the current financial year and has a head office in Liverpool and further regional offices in Carlisle, Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and North Wales.

The four-year-old company designs, installs and commissions renewable energy solutions for the domestic, commercial and construction sectors. It offers a comprehensive range of technologies including Solar Photovoltaic (PV), wind turbines, solar thermal and air source heat pumps. It is one of only a small number of companies to have successfully secured Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accreditations for all four of its specialist areas.

In addition to its new distributorship agreements with K2 Systems and WINAICO, the company already has an existing relationship with Hyundai Solar to distribute its solar panels to other installers in the UK.
