Grayson Thermal Systems is ramping up its recruitment efforts in preparation for “significant and sustained growth” as it sees impressive volume growth in the zero-emission sector.

2022 saw strong sales for the Birmingham-based manufacturer as it bounced back from COVID-19 disruption and the supply chain issues caused by the war in Ukraine. High demand for its heating and cooling systems aimed at zero-emission vehicles in the bus and coach, commercial vehicle, rail, off-highway and specialist vehicle sectors has fuelled the sales surge.

In particular, the company’s third-generation Battery Thermal Management System (BTMS) range – designed to keep batteries at a stable optimum temperature crucial for improving efficiency and extending life – saw further demand in line with the growth in battery electric vehicles (BEV) and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCEV).

The year also saw the heating and cooling specialist introduce its new advanced and complete Vehicle Thermal Management System, which has proven to be a category leader. Additionally, its new Electric Water Heater – an instant source of clean heat generation for even the coldest climates – enjoyed strong growth in North America.

The group is now forecasting a further 22 per cent growth in sales for FY2023/24, along with a raft of new product updates and launches. In preparation for this growth, it is now conducting a recruitment drive to fill various new roles across the business.

Stuart Hateley, Managing Director of Grayson Thermal Systems, commented: “Our 2022 success reflects our efforts to continuously invest in innovation, a focus on our people, and prioritising our customers’ needs. As an organisation, we are now building on existing foundations to ensure we are well-positioned in 2023/24 to meet the growing demand for our products and services. A key aspect of this is ensuring we have the right people in the business.”

Offering career progression and professional development, Grayson Thermal Systems is recruiting for various new roles across Production, HR, Sales, Supply Chain, Engineering and Quality. All positions are available on the company’s Careers page.

“This is an exciting time for us,” continued Stuart “Our product development pipeline is full of new innovations and updates that we will be bringing to market across 2023/24 to meet evolving customer demand. Alongside investing in innovation, we are investing in our people.

“This is a great chance for those who are motivated, dynamic and keen to gain a foothold in this rapidly expanding market to join us on our journey of significant and sustained growth.”

The recruitment activity follows a meeting with Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, last year, where the company’s bosses highlighted the opportunities available to the region through investment in zero-emission transportation projects.
