Environmental sustainability is high on the agenda for Barnsley firm Andel, after making a significant investment to make its operations greener as it focuses on future growth.
The Dodworth-headquartered firm has secured a second round of financial backing from NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance, which is managed by FW Capital and is part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment. The six-figure investment is supporting Andel’s growth strategy which includes its journey to net zero. It has introduced several green initiatives, including replacing its fleet of vehicles with electric cars, installing EV chargers at its head office for all staff, reducing its fossil fuel derived gas and electricity usage by 100%, and creating a wildflower meadow at its head office.
Founded in 1992, Andel has steadily grown to become one of the global market leaders in the design, development and application of specialist leak detection, water sustainability, flood defence and environmental protection systems. Based in Barnsley, Andel has operatives throughout the UK and subsidiaries in The Netherlands and Romania.
