SolarUK Ltd (originally called Magpie Technologies) moved into the Renewable Energy sector in 1998. Early projects involved research and development of solutions to provide power and clean water to developing countries and disaster areas, as well as testing and product improvement for other Solar Thermal manufacturers.
A partnership with the multinational Nippon Electric Glass Co. Ltd (2008 Net Sales c.US$3.7m) led to us using their evacuated tube to manufacture solar thermal collectors for the UK market.
Our accumulated knowledge, and desire to produce the most effective and durable solar systems, led to the development of the LaZer2 evacuated tube collector, as well as our range of digital controllers and circulation controls; all of which we still manufacture in our UK factory today.
In 2003 we decided to grow the supply and installation side of our business, so that we could better serve the growing number of customers wishing to install LaZer2 solar water heating systems. By the beginning of 2009 we have grown to 35 full-time employees and are half way through building a new factory and R&D centre in East Sussex, which was featured by the BBC because of its green credentials.
With our dedicated and experienced team, our UK manufacturing base, as well as the continued focus on technical solutions and customer service, we are sure that SolarUK Ltd will remain the supplier of choice for many throughout the coming years. With unparalleled experience in both domestic and large scale installations, SolarUK has the expertise to tackle future demand.
