Thermon ‘shows faith’ in North East and UK with head office move

An international industrial process heating firm has opened a new UK head office in the North East.

Thermon has switched to Washington Business Centre.

The move follows a record year that saw the group’s global revenue exceed $420million.

Working with renewable energy, petrochemical and heavy industry customers, Thermon – which has operated in the UK for more than 40 years – counts work with Sabic and Wood Group in its order book.

The company is also designing, supplying and installing the entire heat network for ReNew ELP’s Project Wilton International, near Redcar, which bosses say will annually recycle thousands of tonnes of waste plastic.

Chris Lindsay, Thermon engineering manager (Europe) [pictured above, left], said its Sunderland base represents “another show of faith from the group in the strength of the UK market and North East”.

He added: “As well as housing our office and sales teams, we also have staff on-site who provide installation and maintenance support for clients across the country.

“It’s a great place to be, as we’re connected to all the major road networks, and there are a significant number of green energy projects underway and upcoming from Teesside to the Scottish Borders.”

Councillor Graeme Miller, leader of Sunderland City Council, said: “It’s always nice to welcome new businesses to the city, but even more so when it’s a global business.

“As well as providing skilled job opportunities, it’s showing the world the North East is a fantastic place to do business.”
