Newburgh And Firechill Joint Venture Creates Up To 100 South Yorks Jobs With New Low Carbon Cooling Product

A new joint venture (JV) between Rotherham-based Newburgh Engineering and Leeds-based Firechill is set to create up to 100 new jobs in the manufacture of a new energy-efficient low carbon refrigeration system in Rotherham.  The new JV, named Firechill Manufacturing, is the result of a Yorkshire Forward initiative to search for new opportunities to bring manufacturing into Yorkshire.  

The Sheffield office of national law firm Nabarro advised the JV in securing the US-developed Cooltec heat-activated technology that Firechill Manufacturing will manufacture and market to worldwide. 

Newburgh Engineering is a high precision manufacturer and it will make the units at its Rotherham site, while global distribution, recruitment and marketing will be undertaken by Firechill Trading.  

Nabarro partner Andrea Cropley, who advised Newburgh says:

"Firechill Manufacturing is set offer a new, commercial green product manufactured in our region for export to a worldwide market.  This is an excellent example of private sector growth in our local economy following assistance from a public sector initiative.

“The creation of the new jobs will depend on the success of the product in the coming years, but early estimates of up to 100 new jobs is not over-optimistic.”

Vincent Middleton at Newburgh Engineering says:

“The assistance from Nabarro in forming the JV was critical, it is now up to all the Firechill team to now deliver a world beating green product that’s Made in Sheffield.”
