An Alnwick-based biomass firm has appointed a new engineer.
Toby I’Anson, a graduate in green technology from the Scottish Agricultural College, has joined re:heat.
Toby grew up in Hexham, before moving to Glasgow to study at SAC, where he completed his dissertation on wood-chip fuel quality in the North.
Since graduating, he has spent two years at Ashwell Biomass, a firm based in Leicester, before returning to his roots in the North East to take up his new position.
He will support the strong growth of re:heat in the biomass boiler market and will oversee the design, installation and commissioning of boilers and support the expansion of the business.
Toby said: “Having always been interested in the outdoors growing up, it was a natural progression for me to study green technology and biomass at university.
“Joining re:heat gives me the opportunity to really help to drive forward the renewables industry in the North.
“My role is to help the company to continue delivering first-rate services to their growing customer base.”
re:heat was founded in 2011 and has grown rapidly since.
