Dragons Den success

A former national bodybuilding champion, Chris Hopkins, Founder and Managing Director of Yorkshire’s Ploughcroft, is a man on a mission.

His goal, to become the UK’s number one solar installer and a household name. Thanks to the latest series of the BBC’s Dragons’ Den, it’s looking like this just might happen.

In the two weeks following Chris’s appearance on the show, Ploughcroft received more than a thousand enquiries from homeowners interested in solar panels and he is working closely with Deborah Meadon, one of the Dragons’ who is backing Chris.

In addition to an EWM wholesale supplement, we also preview M&E - The Building Services Event. As the UK moves towards a more sustainable future, the latest industry research predicts a wealth of new opportunities for the building services industry, making it more important than ever for professionals to embrace the imminent changes and develop new skills.

I hope you have an enjoyable read and as always we welcome industry feedback and comments. Feel free to contact me at
