Manchester, UK (PRWEB UK) 13 July 2013

The futures bright, the futures green for ICP Networks after opening one of the most eco-friendly Headquarters in Britain.


Officially unveiling the ?1 million global headquarters, MP David Rutley immediately heralded their move as a shining example to other UK businesses.


ICP Networks buy and sell networking equipment from leading manufacturer’s including Cisco System, Avaya, HP and Juniper around the world.


Having outgrown their former base in Wilmslow, ICP Networks have created a purpose built 16,500 sq. ft unit in nearby Poynton, in Cheshire.


The new HQ is effectively carbon neutral thanks to one of the largest installation of solar panels in the North West.


The 50kWp roof-mounted solar panel system provides twice the energy currently required by the firm and allows the surplus to be sold back to the National Grid.


In addition, walls have been double insulated and new light sensors have been installed, saving 90% of the energy used previously.


ICP Networks are a great example of how businesses can operate successfully and help the environment,” said Mr Rutley.


The company offers a wide range of products and services, and the work it does in refurbishing equipment makes clear economic and environmental sense.


I am delighted that ICP Networks has chosen to invest in its new premises here in Poynton another vote of confidence in the village! I would like to wish ICP every success for the future, he added.


Proud Managing Director Matt Archer commented, We are incredibly excited about our new headquarters and the possibility it brings, especially coming on the back of a successful first decade.


We are especially proud of our green credentials. We take our commitment to the environment extremely seriously and constantly strive to find new ways of reducing our impact on the planet.

It isnt just a gimmick, it actually makes great business sense.


“We are able to do the right thing in that the solar panels system for example will save 22 tonnes of Co2 a year, the equivalent to 76,127 air miles. Yet the additional energy also generates an additional income proving that saving the environment also makes for very good business in the long term,” added Mr Archer.


Im so proud of our three inverters, which generate 17,000 watts each, and of the solar panelled system in general that Ive positioned my desk right next to it, so I can literally watch the sun produce all of the energy we need!


The move marks the beginning of an exciting new decade for ICP Networks as they seek to expand their share of a global market that is itself expanding at a rapid rate.


For ten years ICP Networks have supplied a variety of blue-chip financial institutions, educational establishments and manufacturing organisations with a variety of networking equipment in over 40 countries across the globe.


ICP Networks supply Cisco, Avaya, HP, Checkpoint and some of the worlds leading lines in networking equipment, carrying more than 12,000 items of stock at any one time.


We are very proud of what we have achieved and the fact that the majority of our customers and suppliers have been with us since day one says more about our business than I ever could. We pride ourselves on our customer service and high quality and we look forward to a new decade, added Mr Archer.


We believe the new headquarters will enable to us to grow from strength to strength, increase our share of the global market and all the time ensure our impact on the environment is kept to an absolute minimum.


As part of the move to the new headquarters ICP Networks have also unveiled a rebranded logo, modern new website and branded feel which befits their status as one of the UKs most progressive networking equipment suppliers.


ICP Networks boast a client list that includes the likes of Samsung, BT, Shell, Siemens, IBM and British Airways.
