A plumbing and heating firm has won new business and taken on new staff after receiving support through the Low Carbon Skills Fund.

Glasgow-based Renewable Installation Solutions Ltd. used the fund to develop expertise in installing biomass heating systems, which has seen them win new business right around Scotland.

David Mawhinney, owner of Renewable Installation Solutions, said: "The Low Carbon Skills Fund has really helped us grow our business.

"Myself and my business partner George McBride now have certificates for biomass installation, heat pump installation and solar thermal installation.

"We have taken on three engineers, we hope to take on another three soon, and we would like to put them all through the same training as us, but we could only achieve this with the type of funding offered by the Low Carbon Skills Fund.
