Business of the Year entrant – Therser UK
The UK’s largest thermal services provider, Burslem-based Therser UK, has seen its turnover jump from £5.9million to £14.1million in just 12 months.
The company, which was founded in 2009 and has around 70 staff, works with the likes of Rolls Royce and pottery firms.
It manufactures industrial kilns, furnaces and dryers and has been increasingly working on battery-powered kilns.
The company’s management team has more than 150 years of accumulative experience in the thermal sector and deliberately chose to site the business in the very heart of the UK’s ceramics industry.
Sales Director Matthew Pound said: “At Therser UK we strive to be at the forefront of new technologies and the latest standards. Our aim with our test kilns is to drive a greener future. Whether its electric or hydrogen, we will be able to offer our customers a better option for the planet.”
Therser has a head office in Walley Street, Burslem, a second Burslem site at the former Dudson potbank and a Meir Park site at the former Autobrite Direct premises.
It has also just opened the Therser Wellman Furnace and Alloy Division in Tipton after taking over Wellman.
Matthew added: “We have doubled our management and engineering personnel over the past two years in order to facilitate our growing order book.
“We have invested into our business and people and have been successfully awarded industry standards including ISO 14001, ISO 45001, ISO 9001 and I-Gas.”
Therser UK has entered the Business of the Year category of the Staffordshire University Business Awards.
