Grant UK appoints Renewables Manager

After joining Grant UK in the summer of 2017, Kevin Ellis has now been appointed as Renewables Manager for the Company and will be providing support in the renewables sector to customers throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

Alongside its award winning Vortex and VortexBlue oil fired boiler ranges, Grant UK also has an extensive range of renewable products including air source heat pumps, biomass boilers, hybrid technologies, solar thermal systems and cylinders. To support the interest in these expanding product ranges, Kevin Ellis will now focus specifically on Grant’s renewable offering assisting merchants, architects and specifiers.

Kevin’s experience of working with renewable technologies is extensive as a result of being involved in the sector for over seventeen years. Having started his career as an engineer for the Ministry of Defense and then working on both sides of the merchant counter, Kevin understands the industry from both the installer’s perspective and that of merchants and developers. From product knowledge through to design and specification, Kevin’s focus has predominantly been in the renewable sector with an emphasis on heat pumps.

In his new role with Grant UK, Kevin will be supporting the Sales Team of Area Managers based throughout the mainland UK. As Renewables Manager, Kevin will assist the Sales Team with projects involving Grant’s renewable product portfolio. In particular, Kevin will be working with the Aerona³ air source heat pump range which was a finalist in the Heat Pump of the Year category at the National ACR and Heat Pumps 2018 awards.

Designing and manufacturing efficient, reliable off-gas heating solutions has always been at the core of Grant’s product offering. “Householders and property developers are increasingly become aware of incorporating greener technologies into today’s home,” comments Kevin. “To reflect this trend, Grant has developed a range of innovative renewable heating solutions which meet the heating demands of a wide variety of properties sustainably. I am looking forward to developing this part of the business in my new role, raising awareness of Grant’s renewable range and providing the necessary support needed to increase its uptake.”
