Adam International, the SMART wireless building energy management systems manufacturer and installer, is set to add 30 jobs.
The move follows a recent multimillion pound deal with BT to supply and install its web-enabled SMART systems into BT’s telephone exchanges, as well as a two year, £2.5m distribution contract with Canada-based Climacare Solutions.
The company, which currently employs 51 people at its headquarters in Stockport, is looking to increase personnel in its sales, engineering and support divisions as it looks to multiply turnover from £6m in the 12 months to July 2010 to £12m this financial year.
The company claims SMART is the only iBEMS product in the world which is both completely wireless and web-enabled, meaning a 40 percent reduction in installation costs, minimal disruption during fitting and an accelerated return on investment.
The systems can be used by for the control and monitoring of essential services including heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), electricity, gas and water, security, and metering equipment. It will ultimately reduce CO² emissions wherever it is installed.
Stephen Dillon, managing director of Adam International, said: “The company is currently growing in-line with tough financial targets, no mean feat during the current economic climate, and the increase in staff is required to continue business development.”
In 2007, Adam International launched the only wireless iBEMS on the market, and has so far installed 2,000 systems for clients including Boots, M&S, HMV and Fitness First. They are still the only company to offer a truly wireless BEMS solution in the worldwide market.
