A company in Worcestershire is planning to more than triple its workforce in the next 12 months.

Endurance Wind Power, which makes turbines, has employed 30 people since opening in September 2013.

It plans to expand to a workforce of 100 by the end of next year.

The turbine factory and UK office, on the Hartlebury Trading Estate near Kidderminster, will be officially opened later by climate change minister Gregory Barker.

Glenn Johnson, chief executive of the firm, said "stability in the UK market" had led to the Canadian firm opening in Britain, in a move he hopes will bring more than £100m of investment as the alternative energy sector grows.
