A renewable energy company which has set up home in Clitheroe could create more than 25 jobs this year.
With an order book already topping £5m. and an experienced team of 15 already recruited, Biogas and liquid engineering company Stortec, based at the Link 59 Business Park, has already managed large projects across the world in long and successful careers in the sector.
Founder and managing director Gary Little said: “I’m proud to be launching Stortec in the heart of East Lancashire. Our highly experienced team has been actively working in the liquid and biogas storage industry for more than 30 years.
"We are excited to bring £5m. of immediate business, jobs for skilled people, top investors and our leading expertise to the North West immediately - with a rapid growth plan that will see us reaching £15m. by 2021.”
The liquid and biogas storage business is a vital cog in the renewable energy industry and is expected to evolve rapidly, involving more than £50m. of investment in Britain alone.
Its customers have included Severn Trent Water, Thames Water, United Utilities and all water utilities in Britain.
