Powerful Testimonial

Uncategorized No Comments

There’s nothing more satisfying when a credible, independent body pays testimony to our achievements. Well they don’t come much bigger.

Executive Director | Head of the Office of Corporate Engagement EMEA at Goldman Sachs stated:

“Our impact report “Building Small Business Britain” featuring all of you has been released today! The Financial Times wrote an exclusive article about it, the Government’s Small Business Minister, Margot James MP praised your “significant contribution to local economies”, and there has been great activity all day on social media praising the 10KSB alumni. [our Managing Director, Gary Vizard has been an advocate and graduated through this famous programme].

We are celebrating the report on Twitter, and encourage you to retweet, reply and share posts about the report online too. We have also attached a PDF of the report for you to read and share with your family, friends and colleagues.

Thank you for letting us tell your story – we hear time and time again that the most powerful part of the programme is hearing about the individual achievements of each of the graduates, and we could not agree more. We wish you continued success.”

Competition Time

Whilst we’re talking about looking after people, those of you who visited us at the successful Energy Event in September will know that we were running a competition to let one of our visitors win an EnergyAce Compact unit. Naturally, we got lots of interest as it will give the recipient instant savings on their electricity bill.

We received 76 entries, and the lucky winner was no other than Robin Koffler, Group Sales and Marketing Manager for B&S Group in Chester. Robin also heads up Eco Power Supplies and it is this that gained his interest in what we do. Robin is having the EnergyAce Compact fitted in his own home and will no doubt be back to tell us how successful it was, watch this space!

Problems or Solutions?

How many of us go through life complaining about how much ‘Stuff’ we have to do, or there’s this one thing we just can’t get our heads around? In business, this happens a lot, probably every day and many of you will be sat there nodding your heads.

What if it’s a problem you can’t fix? Where do you go?

In our industry, it’s not always obvious. The skills required to investigate and fix Power Quality problems aren’t taught to Energy Managers or Maintenance Electricians. There’s often a lot of complicated data to decipher and, unless you know what you’re looking for, then its just gobbledegook. Even if you can get your head round the numbers, do you know how to specify the solution?

In some cases, you know what you want, but it’s not in the wholesalers, or even in the online catalogue. If it doesn’t have a part number, how do you order it?

You’re now at the mercy of the “Experts”. As my colleague Mick is often fond of saying, Ex is someone who used to be and a Spurt is a drip under pressure. Flippancy aside, how do you know the specialist is right? What is their track record in delivering, does what they have on their website actually reflect what they’ve done? In the Energy Saving game, there have been several instances of companies using logos of clients they’ve never done work for, or even images and case studies from those that have!

So how do we do it? It’s simple really, everything we do is manufactured for the job it’s designed to do. Even solutions that are built on a pattern require setting up as part of the commissioning process. We look at every industrial and commercial job onsite before we pick up a spanner, and insist on gathering our own data if we can’t obtain it from elsewhere. We’re in the middle of a project that we won, simply becuase no one else had the flexibility, at the right quality and price, to physically fit the solution into the space available.

In the retrofit game, the more flexible you are, the better a solution you can provide. We’ve got 15 years of doing so, we haven’t failed yet and the customers keep coming back, even if it looks expensive to start with, our jobs don’t finish with the install, we’ll look after you for years to come.
