Cornwall-based HVAC specialist Teddington has restructured its business under the single trading name of Teddington Systems.
Managing Director James Henderson said the move has been made in response to changing market demands, with clients wanting an integrated approach to design, development, prototyping and manufacturing that covers the entire product lifecycle and incorporates hardware, software and mechanical engineering.
The changes follow a strong start to the financial year for Teddington, which specialises in valves and control devices. As well as investment in new equipment the company has also secured several recent contract wins, working with fireplace specialist Charlton and Jenrick, global energy management specialist Schneider, Nottingham City Council and the Welsh government.
Henderson added: “Despite political uncertainty in Europe and the continually challenging financial climate the thirst for innovation has not diminished. We’ve seen a huge spike in demand for energy saving products, control devices and monitoring and information gathering systems.
“However, the landscape for engineering and manufacturing firms is shifting. Critical to our business and others will be the ability to find smarter ways to design, develop and deliver solutions. More and more clients are requesting an increasingly integrated approach – bringing design, engineering and testing together to cover the entire product development lifecycle.
“We’ve listened to that and responded to the market, consolidating our divisions to provide an overarching service that simplifies the whole process and makes it much more cost effective. At the same time, we felt it as an opportune moment to refresh our look – retaining Teddington’s core values of quality and reliability while developing a new, modern identity.”
