Fuel cell firm Bramble Energy has announced the opening of its new state-of-the-art headquarters in Crawley, West Sussex.
The expansive new facility, which includes a world-leading hydrogen innovation and development hub, is a multi-million-pound investment representing the company’s growth since launching in 2016.
Founded as a university spin-out by co-founder and CEO Dr Tom Mason, Bramble Energy has rapidly gained momentum with its fuel cell technology based on printed circuit board (PCB) technology. The growth has led to the demand for a larger facility that can accommodate Bramble Energy’s projected expansion and support the scale up of its technology to transform the hydrogen fuel cell industry.
The facility, Atrium Court, spans almost 34,000 square feet, more than three times the size of its previous premises and will accommodate Bramble Energy’s growing workforce, which has increased tenfold from just eight staff in 2020 to more than 80 today.
A Hydrogen Innovation Hub and testing facility dedicated to hydrogen fuel cells, electrolysers and sensors will be at the facility. Concepts can be taken through from the R&D phase all the way up to production-ready technology.
Dr Tom Mason, Bramble Energy co-founder and CEO, said: “We are extremely proud to move into our new, state-of-the-art headquarters, which represents a major milestone for Bramble Energy. Our success and growth has been phenomenal in a very short amount of time, which is in no small part to our technology but also the support we have received and having a talented and dedicated team.
“Our world-leading Hydrogen Innovation Hub at Atrium Court will significantly contribute to levelling up the UK’s hydrogen and fuel cell testing capability. It will play a crucial role in our future development as we revolutionise the shift towards cleaner and sustainable energy solutions.”
