Airco is demonstrating its commitment to Hull after unveiling plans for a new state-of-the-art headquarters in the city, the Scunthorpe Telegraph reported.
Beginning as a sole trader with just a van and a business idea, Airco has grown into a market leader in the UK’s HVAC sector.
In 2010, the company relocated to Priory Park East after outgrowing its former base in Stoneferry Road, east Hull.
Now, following further growth, construction is to kick off on new bespoke premises next to Airco’s current home.
As well as providing a showcase for the company’s services, the company says the building will also set to raise the bar in terms of renewable energy, with ground-source heat pumps and other environmentally friendly features throughout.
Airco has so far invested around £800,000 in the bespoke building, which is expected to be completed by October.
“All the technology will be environmentally friendly and will demonstrate the kind of technology and services we do all of the time,” Airco said.
“Some of this technology we have been installing for 20 years, but it is only recently it has come under the term ‘renewables’.”
The news comes off the back of a successful year in which the company reported growth of 39 per cent. Airco now employs about 70 people, including 10 apprentices.
