Scunthorpe eco business expands workforce after £100k investment

A North Lincolnshire-based business has expanded its workforce following an investment of £100,000.

Based in Scunthorpe, Flixborough Eco Technologies Ltd received the investment from UK Steel Enterprise.

The investment will allow the company to develop a network of sustainability professionals at the company, purchase hard and software and marketing support.

Flixborough Eco Technologies is also the only firm in North Lincolnshire with Carbon Trust accreditation for the installation of heat pumps, LED lighting and Solar PV.

Established in 2012, Flixborough is led by Giles Barker and Stuart Turner, and the funding has allowed the appointment of Office Manager Jolene Law.

Managing Director Giles Barker, said: “The funding has been vital to our continued growth and expansion, and has really helped us to drive the business forward as we continue to increase our regional and national scope.

“It is of key importance to us as a business to invest in the North Lincolnshire region, and with the funding provided by UKSE we have been able to invest in a local subcontract network of sustainability professionals, vital to our expansion and allowing us to meet the continued demand from clientele in the area.”
