10 staff have already been hired into roles across Dearman’s engineering teams to work on procurement, simulation, design and new applications of the Dearman engine. Additional engineering staff are being recruited across the company’s testing, project management, and systems operations. Dearman is also creating a number of new roles in its commercial teams, with five new sales staff and two additional commercial analysts in the process of being recruited.
These appointments are being made to help Dearman manage the growth of the business as it moves towards the commercial launch of its zero emission transport refrigeration unit, which has already undergone successful trials with Sainsbury’s and other international blue chip companies.
The company is meanwhile developing a series of additional applications of its core technology, the Dearman Engine, for use in transport, logistics and the built environment. During 2017, the company successfully trialed the world’s first liquid nitrogen hybrid bus, demonstrating the high power variant of the Dearman Engine and highlighting the role it can play in reducing pollution from transportation.
Commenting, Dearman senior director David Rivington said:“Dearman is a proudly ambitious company and is determined to provide an affordable and effective alternative to diesel technologies. To achieve this goal we need to recruit the brightest and the best, creating a number of high technology jobs in the process. As governments across the world address air quality challenges and forward thinking companies move away from diesel we are well placed to continue our growth into the future.”
