Rapidly growing Northumberland biomass energy specialist re:heat has made a key appointment to lead the servicing arm of its business.
Terry Harvey is the firm’s new biomass engineer, having previously worked closely with re:heat while running his own heating business from Morpeth.
re:heat helps customers identify and buy the right biomass boilers for their needs and also works in designing systems, fuel supply logistics, fault-finding and problem resolution.
Terry’s appointment is part of the Alnwick-based company’s overall expansion plans and recruitment drive over the next 12 months – a move that will see additional biomass heating experts join the existing team of six.
He will cover an area across the North of England and throughout Scotland.
“Part of my portfolio is to expand the servicing area of the business,” said Terry, who lives in Morpeth.
“I’m looking forward to building our new customer base, as well as developing the servicing side for both domestic and commercial customers who find themselves with a biomass boiler but without an experienced engineer who can provide servicing support.
“re:heat has a strong track record of providing the service that renewable heating users need, ensuring they continue to see the benefits of switching from fossil fuels. I really want to focus on helping customers by making their boilers run as efficiently as possible.”
Terry has over ten years of experience in the construction industry, having run a successful heating business specialising in the installation, service and maintenance of energy efficient boiler systems.
re:heat was founded in 2011 by Neil Harrison and Ben Tansey to assist businesses of all sizes to convert from fossil fuels to sustainable, low carbon wood fuel heating systems. The firm has grown considerably in five years and in 2015 reported a turnover in excess of £3.8m.
“We are dedicated specialists, committed to building long term relationships in a sector where there’s a general lack of expertise and a growing demand for the specific advantages renewable heating sources provide,” said Mr Harrison.
“Terry is a superb appointment for re:heat, bringing considerable experience of the heating industry and leading our drive to significantly grow the servicing side of our business while driving up standards across the sector.”
