Martin Dixon Appoints Experienced Renewables Expert

RENEWABLES specialists Martin Dixon Ltd have appointed experienced green energy expert Paul Griffin as their Renewables Projects Engineer.

Mr Griffin, 34, will head-up the rapidly expanding division of the long-established Anlaby business, which made the move into the green energy market last September.

Formerly a partner at another local firm, where he helped establish a successful renewables operation over the past three years, Mr Griffin will focus mainly on installations of biomass boilers for both commercial customers and home owners.

Business development manager Frank Saunders, right, welcoming Paul Griffin to the business.

"This is an exciting move for me as Martin Dixon Ltd has made a big financial commitment to developing the renewables side of its business over the past 12 months, and has been rewarded with great success in its first year," he said.

"I have seen a major change in the industry over the three years I have been involved. When I first started out, people were very much unaware of the benefits and they still needed educating around renewable energy, what it was, and why it was so beneficial.

"Now, particularly over the past six to 12 months, there has been a shift, and I find customers now know exactly what they want. They have researched the huge financial benefits and want to turn to the right supplier to fulfil their needs.

"That is why it is exciting to join a business like Martin Dixon, which is long-established and is committed to renewable energy long-term.

"Large areas of the East Riding and North Yorkshire are still heating their premises on oil, so there is a huge potential customer base for products like biomass.

"Having been a partner in a business which enjoyed great success in renewable energy, and in fact was probably the first in East Yorkshire to do it successfully, I am confident I have the knowledge, skills and expertise to help Martin Dixon continue to grow this area of its business."

Frank Saunders, business development manager at Martin Dixon Ltd, said Mr Griffin's appointment reflected the rapid growth of the firm's renewables division.

"With the business growing at such a rapid rate, we needed somebody with the in-depth knowledge and understanding of the sector, and in particular the biomass industry, to ensure we not only maintain the success, but move forward and expand.

"Paul has already shown that he will be a highly-valued member of the team. He has vast experience and knowledge of the industry, the key suppliers and products, and how the Government incentives work best.

"In what is still a relatively new and growing industry, to have somebody like Paul, who has successfully run his own company, is a great addition for us."

Client Testimonials

Allan Whitehead, site manager, South Cave CE Primary School

Martin Dixon Ltd were brilliant. They stood out ahead of all other firms we looked at across the country as they could offer us the complete package. It was great to use an established local company with the expertise to deliver this for us, and throughout their time on site they were superb. Financially, the savings and extra income will allow us to run the school for a year at no cost to us.

Janet Huscroft, Headteacher, Hook CE Primary School

I was introduced to the work of Martin Dixon at an awareness raising meeting organised by the local NAHT Association. They installed solar panels and LED lighting throughout the school. The work was promptly carried out during the summer break of 2015, we are delighted with the results. I would have no hesitation in recommending Martin Dixon as a company to fulfil what they promise.

Alison Risebury, School Business Manager, Swinefleet Primary School

After just having had our LED lights fitted in school this week, I just wanted to get in touch to say thankyou to Martin Dixon for the work you did. All lights are now changed making a massive difference to the lighting within our school and hopefully to our electrical costs! Many thanks for the level of service that you have given us.
