Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

A COM­PANY is set to earn more than £1 mil­lion by in­stalling so­lar pan­els on its roof.

Food pack­ag­ing firm Proseal, based at Adling­ton Busi­ness Park, didn’t have to look far for their po­ten­tial seven fig­ure profit as sales­man Les Hat­ter­s­ley is based in the neigh­bour­ing unit with Green Energy Com­mer­cial.

The com­pany spent £300,000 on 1,000 so­lar pan­els which will pro­duce so such elec­tric­ity it will feed back into the grid.

It is es­ti­mated that the com­pany will show a profit of more than £1 mil­lion within 20 years.

They will also save tens of thou­sands on their elec­tric­ity bills.

Stephen Malone, co-founder of Proseal, which em­ploys 230 peo­ple on the site, said: “We had looked into so­lar a while ago, but it was Les knock­ing on the door that spurred us on and we sim­ply asked him for a quote.”

Stephen and co-founder Robert Har­g­reaves steered Proseal to a turnover of £30 mil­lion last year.
