Burnley-based Velocity Composites chose to work with Low Carbon Energy after looking for ways to improve energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint. Moving into the future, the company knew that making significant energy and CO2 savings would become increasingly important – especially considering their business was rapidly expanding.

Velocity Composites connected with fellow North West Aerospace Alliance members (NWAA), Low Carbon Energy, upon recommendation from other colleagues in the industry and were able to reap the benefits of a more energy efficient building in no time.
