Stephen Gilbert is the current Parliamentary Private Secretary to Ed Davey MP, the UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change
Member of Parliament Stephen Gilbert officially opened our new research and development facility during a recent tour of the company’s head office. He was on hand to hear from members of the company’s R & D and senior management teams who were keen to explain their plans for the future within his constituency.
We are committed here at Enigin to an ambitious programme of redeveloping our product range in line with growing demand for more advanced energy monitoring and control systems.
During this recent intense phase of growth our spend on research and development has been running at five times the national average, at around 10% of turnover compared to the average of just 1.7%.
In a recent press release Managing Director, Troy Wrigley said, “It is an exciting time for our business, and the industry as a whole.”
“Energy monitoring and management is an increasingly competitive area and we have had huge success to date in capturing a significant share of the market. We are now stepping up our efforts in order to capitalise on the opportunity, paving the way for exciting developments over the next five years’. He continued.
Stephen Gilbert MP added, “This is good news for St Austell, creating much needed new jobs and bringing much needed new investment and it’s good news for Cornwall, putting us firmly at the forefront of developments of the green economy.”
The new facility here at Enigin boasts state of the art computer systems, testing equipment and other technology designed to help the team develop leading edge solutions to energy control.
The facility is home to the company’s team of software engineers, electronics engineers and hardware developers, who are based at the St. Austell facility.
In my role as Enigin PLC Technology Director it is a pleasure and privilege to be working alongside such an impressive team of committed professionals, both those who work in the R & D lab full time and the specialist engineers we contract regularly to complete specific tasks.
What the team has accomplished over the last two years in bringing so many new and innovative products to market is nothing short of incredible and all thanks goes to the dedicated people who are involved in helping create what I believe is the best range of energy saving products in the world.
Our development team includes; Simon Turner (Head of R&D), Nikoli Clark, Jamie Dowding, Andy Smith, Dave Newton, John West, Guy Turley, Al Shiner, Simon Potter, Ed Raynham, and Jason Carroll – all of whom have played an invaluable role in getting us to where we are today.
Enigin now design and manufacture a full range of Eniscope Real-Time Energy management Systems in addition to the range of load-side products ACES, iMEC and CUES – all of which are the subject of Patents, Trademarks and Copyright Design applications.
