Innovative Weatherite goes 'tri-gen'.
A leading UK producer of air conditioning, air handling, heating, heat recovery and cooling equipment, Weatherite is creating additional factory space and investing in new manufacturing and testing equipment, to produce tri-generation or 'tri-gen' plants - the next genera-a tion in combined heat and power. The project will safeguard at least 15 highlyskilled jobs and lever more than pounds 640,000 of private sector investment.
John Whitehouse, the Weatherite chairman who founded the company almost 40 years ago, said: "Thanks to the support from Advantage West Midlands we have been able to accelerate our expansion plans and diversify. We are in a position to take advantage of opportunities stemming from the increasing importance placed on low carbon."
Richard Clift, Grants Case Officer at AWM, said: "This is a great example of how AWM is supporting projects that deliver the best returns on investment."
