“We are delighted to be in a position to double production to meet the growing demand for our groundbreaking technology. We are seeing customers wanting to adopt a trusted technology that is easy and efficient to adopt, futureproofing their business when faced with spiraling energy costs and a much more environmentally savvy customer of the future.”
