A family run company specialising in electrics is looking at a bright green future after moving to its new headquarters in Shipston.

With an eye on the future, Electrical contractor Alderminster is focused on growing the renewables side of the business, technologies that the new building showcases.

The business, run by husband and wife Paul and Maria Clack, has invested a significant amount of money in the new building, moving away from its old home at Ettington Park Business Village.

Stratford MP Nadhim Zahawi officially opened Alderminster's new headquarters during an event on Friday.

The company, which employs 14 people, works with businesses and homeowners on all aspects of electrics from testing circuits to installing the latest renewable technologies.

Alderminster has established f established a good reputation since it was founded 30 years ago, but moving to its new site at Shipston Business Park is enabling it to showcase the renewables side of the business.

Two electric car charging points, which the company installs, have been put in at the new site and the business has its own Nissan Leaf electric vehicle.

The building is heated using the latest in air source heat pump technology, lit with LED lighting, while it is also investigating putting solar panels on the roof.

Away from the renewables side, the move to Shipston has provided more room and enabled the company to install training facilities to teach its apprentice engineers.

Henry Sneath, operations supervisor at Alderminster, said: “It would be hard for us to sell a renewable technologies if we didn’t have experience of using them ourselves and that is something this building is enabling us to do.

“The green building reflects our values as a company and with the extra space provided it will enable us to grow. This building has future proofed the business.

“We wouldn’t have been able to expand at our old headquarters, it was very cramped, but since we have moved in here we have been able to take on two new apprentices and we hope to take on even more staff in the future. The old building also had an EPG rating of G and this one is rated B, so it is much more efficient.

“Another advantage of being here is that we can develop more links with local businesses. We were a bit hidden away before but at our new location we are much more visible. A lot of our engineers live in or around Shipston too which is convenient and we’re right on the Foss Way so we have better transport links here.”
