GlenFarrow at Energia 2018 Tampere Finland
GlenFarrow (UK) Ltd, named as one of the top 1,000 inspirational companies in the country by the London Stock Exchange in 2018, continues to develop with an export drive into Europe. GlenFarrow began an exporting drive for their batch-fed Biomass Boilers with activity in Ireland. The company are building on their success there by promoting their innovative Biomass Boilers to a Northern European market.
Initial activity has been attendance at two key Exhibitions in Finland, FinnMetko in late August, and Energia 2018 in Tampere Finland during October. FinnMetko proved very successful with sales of boilers into both Finland and Estonia and a substantial number of enquiries which are been followed up by the GlenFarrow team. Energia 2018 has proven very successful with GlenFarrow Chairman, Andrew Keeling, speaking at the event during a presentation by British Embassy Deputy Head of Mission, Richard Shackleton.
GlenFarrow have also developed a number of additional tools to promote their boilers including an International Website and literature in Finnish.
Biomass boilers are common in the Baltic countries, however the GlenFarrow version is unique, in that it is batch-fed rather than chip or pellet fed. This has proved popular with buyers who recognise that chip and pellets can be comparatively expensive to buy. Scandinavian’s have also recognised the very high build qualities of the GlenFarrow biomass boiler range with its innovative features such as the waterfilled doors which maximise the levels of heat that can be harvested.
Following the exhibition GlenFarrow Chairman, Andrew Keeling, said: “The reception we had in Finland was magnificent. Interest in our batch-fed boiler solution has grown across Europe as green energy solutions become more relevant. I was grateful to be given a platform by the British Embassy at Energia 2018 which helped us get our message across about the benefits of our batch-fed boilers. We are now seeking an agent in Finland to help deal with the interest we have had and bring our boiler range to an even wider audience.
