THE Edinburgh Boiler Company has announced a record turnover of £4.4 million following a year of ‘unprecedented growth’.
The figure represents a major increase in revenue of £2.5 million to the end of the financial year September 30, 2021 – a rise of 134% on last year’s £1.87 million.
The firm revealed the performance allowed ‘significant’ investment across different areas of the business, including expansion into Glasgow. 12 new employees joined during the period, bringing the total number to 36.
The Edinburgh Boiler Company said it was proactive to pandemic-related challenges, investing in portable workstations to allow engineers to work as efficiently and safely as possible in customers’ homes.
The past 12 months also saw the business move into a larger HQ, which houses the Energy Training Academy where the engineers of tomorrow are being trained in renewables.
MD Mark Glasgow said, “There were a range of challenges that had to be faced in the past year and I am indebted to the staff for the manner in which they stuck to the task. Everything is geared towards good customer service and everything follows from there.
“We reacted in the right ways to Covid. In such situations team work is more vital than ever and everyone came together to ensure our customer service wasn’t impacted, in fact it was enhanced by all their efforts in the most testing of circumstances.
“We brought a number of new employees into the business to ensure the structure was there for ongoing expansion plans and I’m excited by what the future holds for us a business. Everyone has bought into the Edinburgh Boiler Company’s approach and that is putting the customer first at all times.
“A highlight of the past year was opening our base in Edinburgh. The new headquarters will improve our efficiency and provide the ideal foundation for further investment and growth. There is a lot of work still to be done but we’re going in the right direction.”
