Smart meter installation and maintenance company Trojan Utilities has moved into a new 785 square meter headquarters on Middlebrook’s retail, leisure and business park in Bolton, UK. This isequivalent to nine average sized semi-detached homes.
 
Called Stadium House, it will house Trojan’s growing operational team as they support their engineers on a national level coordinating their working day, contracts, and stock. The company will retain its other offices in Scotland, Normanton, Yorkshire and central Bolton.
 
“I’m from Bolton myself and it’s a great moment to able to invest further in the town I love so much,” said Gareth Openshaw, managing director of Trojan Utilities. “We’ve grown and developed so much as a business in the past 12 months, and have recruited accordingly to reflect this. We simply needed more space to accommodate our needs now and in the future as we continue our recruitment drive in Bolton and lead in the UK’s renewal of domestic energy metering hardware.”
 
Trojan Utilities specialises in the installation and maintenance of domestic smart meters throughout the UK, including the installation and maintenance of traditional domestic gas and electric meters. With an infrastructure now established for national operations, the company is supporting government legislation to lower the carbon footprint of the UK by replacing the metering system currently in place with that of smart metering. The company is currently installing 2000 smart meters per week.
