Bowman Power secures GBP3m funding
Bowman Power, the waste heat recovery technology business, has secured GBP3m (USD5.0m) of additional funding from existing shareholders including Octopus Investments, Fjord Capital and a number of angel investors.
The round was heavily oversubscribed.
The funding will primarily be used for the global expansion of this fast growing business. Bowman is looking to enlarge its global footprint and develop new products thanks to the capital injection. In particular, the funds will be used for additional marketing associated with an expanding worldwide distributor network for Bowman’s innovative energy recovery technologies. Bowman now has a total of six distributors globally.
Company CEO Dr Toby King, among the investors in the funding round, says: “We want to expand our global footprint in terms of sales, marketing and distribution, and this funding round will make that all possible. At the same time we are looking to move into new and potentially dynamic markets such as Brazil, India, and Indonesia.
“The funding round gives us a solid foundation and the financial security to expand, move forward with confidence and continue to deliver growth. Of course none of this would have been possible without the skills, dedication and hard work of our employees.” He further added that Bowman was also gaining “significant traction” with a number of engine OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) involving development and supply agreements.
Simon Andrews, part of the Ventures Team at Octopus Investments, says: “We have been impressed by the considerable progress Toby and his team have made in turning Bowman into a high quality supplier to a global customer base. This latest funding round demonstrates the support of the investor syndicate; we are pleased to continue to back the business in the next phase of its growth.”
