Flying start to 2017 for EOGB
EOGB Energy Products Ltd has reported a successful first half of 2017, with total burner sales up by 10%.
The number of service aids sold also increased by 15%, while sales of ‘Abzorb’ organic oil spill products more than doubled compared with the first half of 2016. This is thought to be as a result of an increased focus on environmental issues and prevention of insurance claims.
EOGB has continued to invest heavily in research and development, introducing its first domestic blue flame oil burner, ‘Sapphire’, at ISH Frankfurt earlier this year. The innovative low Nox burner not only satisfies the required standards set by the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive, but also meets lower requirements due to come into force in 2022 well ahead of time. Unlike other low NOx products currently available on the market, the Sapphire burner is fully-modulating and so delivers a step-change improvement in fuel efficiency and carbon reduction, delivering significantly lower heating bills for consumers.
EOGB’s training services have also continued to increase in popularity. Compared with the first half of 2016, there has been an impressive 300% increase in the number of engineers undertaking unvented hot water training at the facility in Cambridgeshire and a 283% increase in bookings for entry-level OFTEC 50. Additionally, the number of engineers completing their main OFTEC qualifications at EOGB is up by 8% and ACS gas course attendees have more than doubled.
EOGB has also introduced the OFTEC 201 commercial burners course, being the only training provider in the UK to offer additional manufacturer training to satisfy the requirements of BS5410 part 3.
Paul Barritt, Managing Director at EOGB, said: “We’re delighted that EOGB is continuing to go from strength to strength and we look forward to a positive remainder of 2017. The Sapphire low NOx burner is truly revolutionary and we’re proud to be at the forefront of development in the oil heating industry.”
EOGB are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and distributors of oil, gas and dual fuel burners for domestic, commercial and industrial applications.
