Evergreen Power make their home in our Capital Space Business Centre in Croydon. Being established since 2013 as a family run business specialising in renewable energy, they have reinvented themselves as insulation experts, specialising in the installation of innovative insulation technologies, allowing them to move from strength to strength in recent years.

Ability to adapt to business demand

Evergreen Power is a fast-growing company specialising in heating and insulation, however that hasn’t always been the case: “Five years ago we started off as a solar energy supplier, and then we went into renewable heating systems. But then we realised that for any good heating system to work efficiently, it needs good insulation. So, we investigated the insulation on the market, and spray foam insulation was the most superior product out there,” explains Managing Director Martin Johnson.

Evergreen Power mainly work with Icynene’s spray foam product, which expands by up to a hundred times to fill empty spaces to help avoid leakage of air through gaps in homes: “We are fully accredited BBA and Worcester Bosch installers, the only Icynene accredited installer in London, and the largest installer of Icynene spray foam insulation in the UK.”

Business accommodation to support expansion

“We moved into the Capital Space business accommodation approximately two years ago. We were office-based to start with, and we have since up-scaled to two offices and one workshop. Obviously, location is important to us, as well as all the facilities, meeting rooms, and just the ease of operating from here; the receptionist staff and mail services are very helpful – all the services here make operating very easy.

“We've gone from one small office near the cafeteria to a workshop, and now we have two offices up in the office area - so we have a total of three units. We would quite happily take another workshop if that's possible, but they don't come about very often!”

Future plans

With such fast growth, it’s perhaps not surprising that Evergreen Power is planning on more of the same: “We see ourselves growing from strength to strength. Right now, we have seven rigs (vans equipped with Icynene-installing gear). We could quite easily double that if we had the staff. We will happily take another workshop when another becomes available to just keep growing.

“We measure our success by the people who work with us. As long as they're happy and they're well-paid, it keeps the wheels moving and we can grow.”

Spotting market trends has worked the world of wonders for Evergreen Power, who can’t wait to keep growing. It just goes to show that recognising up-and-coming technologies and utilising them effectively can be an excellent strategy to propel your business forward.
