Richard has been influential in the development of many product innovations, including the promotion of the combination boiler and the high-efficiency condensing boiler, which have helped to meet customer demand and position the Worcester brand as a market leader within the UK's heating industry.
In recent years, Richard has overseen the expansion of the company's product range to include many renewable technologies such as heat pumps and solar water heating.

More recently, Richard's commitment to the industry has seen him open his own Worcestershire home as a training facility for the present generation of heating engineers and local school children keen to learn about the importance of energy efficiency.
