One Kogarah-based business is at the forefront of creating energy-saving solutions for big business - and they hope to expand even further.
Climatech, a mechanical services company which designs and delivers smart engineering solutions, has a base at Rocky Point Road where 130 employees work on their greener endeavours.
But founder and managing director Marc de Stoop wants to see even more workers on site, and hopes to grow the site to house hundreds of workers.
He says a change to the zoning - something the company is hoping to work closely with Bayside Council to achieve - from B6 Bulky Goods to B4 Mixed Business would allow Climatech and its partner company Crowley Carbon Australia to do even more work in their energy-reducing field.
Their work has already helped Westfield Parramatta reduce their annual energy costs by 27 per cent.
They utilise more energy-efficient equipment, operations and modern technology to achieve the results, and the businesses can generally expect to recoup the cost of their energy upgrades within the first two to three years.
The 11,000sqm Kogarah location - formerly the Darrell Lea factory - is also set to be the home of Climatech's Indigenous Skills Training Centre.
