Ecolution celebrates 15th birthday

Solar thermal and PV installers Ecolution is celebrating its 15th anniversary this month.

The Kent-based company reports an impressive level of growth in that time and is projected to hit the £10m turnover mark this year – a 30 percent increase on 2013.

Ecolution’s managing director, Richard Jenkins, said: “This is a fantastic achievement and one which the whole company should be proud of. Back in 1999, Kevin and Andrew Knapp, Ecolution’s founders, had a vision of renewable heat and electricity installations becoming part of the modern building’s fabric. Fifteen years later, despite the tough time the construction and housing sectors have faced, we are going strong, expanding the business in many ways.”

He added: “We want to offer our customers only the highest quality of products and services, which relies not only on the partnerships we create, but also on the dedication and skill of our personnel. In the last five years we have more than doubled the number of our staff, growing from 25 employees in 2009 to 60 in 2014.”
