Martin Gibbons, mechanical and engineering manager at CGA, said. “CGA are committed to using local labour and boosting the local economy wherever possible. When the contract came up for renewal, it made sense to talk to Baxi Group, a company that has been established in the Preston area for over 150 years, and employs a number of our residents.
“By 2010, CGA will have spent around £90 million on repairs and modernisation. This includes providing efficient, affordable heating systems to keep our residents warm and comfortable.”
In addition to supplying Baxi and Potterton boilers, manufactured at its Bamber Bridge site, Baxi Group will provide a complete technical, training and service facility.
CGA heating contractors will receive installation and maintenance training at Baxi Group’s training centre at Warrington.
