11 July 2013 — Solar photo voltaic installer Mark Group UK has topped The Sunday Times’ International Track 200 list, which ranks the UK’s most successful export businesses.
Established in 2009, Mark Group Australia was the first global subsidiary Mark Group UK launched, and it has enjoyed 67 per cent year-on-year revenue growth thanks to an ever-increasing demand for energy efficiency solutions, including solar power and insulation.
Mark Group Australia chairman Rob Grant has overseen the company’s growth to a staff of 132 in four states.
“We are now the largest installer of solar PV in Australia,” he said.
“We install insulation for some of the country’s largest home builders including McDonald Jones, Clarendon Homes and GJ King, and we’re actively building new revenue streams in commercial energy efficiency and renewable energy as well as expanding our product offer to include low energy lighting solutions and heating products.”
Grant said solar PV was increasing in spite of feed-in tariffs and subsidies being lowered and that people are seeking to make their homes more energy efficient though the use of products such as high performance insulation.
