Official opening for training centre

Chris White, MP for Warwick and Leamington, has officially opened the BDR Thermea training facility in Warwick.

Located a short distance from its headquarters in the town, Acorn House signals an increased focus on training by the company.

In addition to providing instruction on its own products, BDR Thermea is also working with organisations such as BPEC, NICEIC and SummitSkills to increase training options.

The newly-opened facility will also serve as a blueprint for the refurbishment of the company’s other training centres around the UK, as well as for new facilities in the future.

Mr White praised the initiative, which he said will help the local community share in the “green dividend” of energy efficiency.

Lee Robinson, BDR Thermea customer service director, said: “We have invested over half a million pounds in this new centre and increased the local training capacity by 100 per cent.”

The business is currently celebrating 40 years in Warwick, he stated.

Acorn House includes solar thermal panels on the roof and uses a biomass boiler for hot water, along with a Baxi Ecogen micro-CHP boiler. Solar PV is due to be installed later this year.
