Going for greener growth.

Published:  12 May, 2010

MARKET DEEPINGS: The renewable energy products distributor Eco Building Products, a trading division of The Deepings Trading Company, has teamed up with Oakham-based Navitron to deliver its renewable energy products throughout the East Midlands.

Eco Building Products and Deepings Trading operations director Ian Greenfield said: "We have joined forces with Navitron to further enhance our ability to supply the best in renewable energy products to our customers.

"Eco Building Products is committed to providing the best range of quality renewable energy products available to the trade in this region. Our partnership with Navitron will help us to achieve that."

Navitron supplies all types of renewable energy generation equipment including evacuated tube solar collectors, solar photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, water turbines, back up power generators, woodstoves and heat pumps.

Founder and director of Navitron, Ivan Lucas, said: "Our mission is to demonstrate that green energy is genuinely viable, whether you are living on or off grid – and that renewable energy can be a sound financial investment, as well as a sound investment in our future.

"Renewable energy installations such as wind power or solar installations make a significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions and the trade is at last embracing environmental 'green' technologies.

"There has never been a better time to consider implementing renewable energy. Through Eco Building Products we can supply small scale systems suitable for producing only a couple of watts of power up to full scale commercial systems capable of supplying many megawatts to a wider customer base."

Navitron sales manager Edward Reynolds said: "We have a national presence but being based in Oakham we are particularly keen to develop our business in the East Midlands region.

"Small-scale renewable energy systems based on sustainable technology are perfect for local distribution. As an established builders' merchants with strong connections in the area, and a commitment to supplying quality renewable energy products, Eco Building Products can help us achieve that."

Eco Building Products has signed an agreement to become Navitron's sole agent selling a range of products including wind turbines, photovoltaic cells and heat pumps to tradesmen throughout Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Rutland and North Cambridgeshire.
