Zero-emission refrigeration technology company Dearman has expanded its South London production facility, with the creation of 40 new jobs.
The company has developed a zero-emission transport refrigeration system, which replaces diesel with liquid nitrogen in refrigeration trailers and trucks, as well as other potential power and cooling applications.
Based in Croydon, the company has worked with retail clients including Sainsburyâ€™s to road-test its technology, which it has been developing for commercial applications since 2013 and employing around 70 people across engineering, research and sales roles.
As a result of the latest wave of expansion 10 staff have been hired into roles across Dearmanâ€™s engineering teams to work on procurement, simulation, design and new applications of the Dearman engine.
Additional engineering staff are being recruited across the companyâ€™s testing, project management, and systems operations.
Commenting, Dearman senior director David Rivington said: â€œDearman is a proudly ambitious company and is determined to provide an affordable and effective alternative to diesel technologies. To achieve this goal we need to recruit the brightest and the best, creating a number of high technology jobs in the process. As governments across the world address air quality challenges and forward thinking companies move away from diesel we are well placed to continue our growth into the future.â€
