Go Geothermal Ltd, the largest supplier of heat pumps in County Durham, has responded to the growing demand for renewable energy solutions by opening a new head office and warehouse in Newton Aycliffe. This expansion has allowed the company to increase its product range, including air and ground source heat pumps, biomass, underfloor heating, and solar technologies. The new premises, double the size of its previous location, provide Go Geothermal with the ability to significantly increase its stock holding and store up to £1.6 million worth of renewable energy products, with space to grow to £5 million.
According to Sean Sowden, Director of Go Geothermal, the expansion was necessary due to the rapidly increasing interest and demand in renewable energy products, driven largely by the UK government’s net zero targets. The company prides itself on offering innovative and market-leading products, and the new office and warehouse will further enhance their ability to provide these solutions.
In addition to housing the warehouse and offices, the new premises will also serve as one of Go Geothermal’s national heat pump training centres. This facility will enable the company to train and educate professionals on the installation and operation of heat pump systems, thereby contributing to the growth and development of the renewable energy sector.
In a separate development, Apexon, a digital-first technology services company, has opened a new facility in Sunderland to meet the growing demand for its services. The 5,700 sq ft facility, located at The Beam in Riverside Sunderland, will serve as Apexon’s UK headquarters and support its plans for continued investment in the UK and Europe.
Rob Gwyther, Managing Director of Apexon, expressed excitement about expanding their presence in the UK, highlighting the vibrant technology hub and access to talent in the region. The company aims to partner with organizations as their preferred technology partner to facilitate their digital transformation journeys.
The expansion of Apexon’s office space in Sunderland showcases the growth and development opportunities available in the digital services sector, according to Patrick Melia, CEO of Sunderland City Council. This move further demonstrates the city’s commitment to nurturing a robust and inclusive digital culture that supports the growth and success of technology companies.
