Ener-G extends global HQ, creating 100 jobs

Climate change minister Greg Barker has opened a £2m extension to the global headquarters of low-carbon technology group Ener-G in Salford, Greater Manchester, through which the company will create 100 new jobs in 2011.

The building has doubled Ener-G’s office space and will release additional space for manufacturing low-carbon and renewable technologies, including biogas generation and combined heat and power systems (CHP).

Over the past ten years, the international manufacturing and engineering group has increased the size of its workforce from 75 to more than 760 people worldwide, with 560 of them based in the UK.

In partnership with a number of schools, colleges and universities, Ener-G is training 20 young people through its apprenticeship scheme and new graduate development programme.
