Energy partnership renewed for two South Tyneside businesses

Independent energy consultant, Square One Utilities has announced a contract with Jarrow-based electrical components manufacturer, HVR International Ltd to manage its energy supply services.

Boldon-based Square One Utilities acted for HVR International in 2015 and has now been put on a formal footing as a result of the relationship it has built with the firm.

Kevin Mclaughlin, managing director at HVR International, said: “We are one of the world’s leading providers of high-voltage and high-energy ceramic carbon linear resistors used in electrical power transmission and high energy handling products by worldwide multi-nationals.

“We offer a niche product and having sourced the market for the best possible energy deals we appointed Square One Utilities as our advisers.

“The purchasing of energy can prove time consuming and the market is constantly changing. Square One Utilities appealed as it provides us with up-to-the-minute advice that is independently sourced and without favour to any energy provider.

“Having initially engaged Square One on a trial basis, we have been delighted with its services and are more than happy that we made the correct decision in selecting the company. We receive regular client contact and an exceptional service.”

Specialist in energy procurement and energy management, Square One Utilities has an enviable blue chip client base that includes Eton College, The Royal Mint and Newcastle Building Society. The company is also about to launch a dedicated service for the small to mid-range market that will allow it to provide instant quotations from multiple energy providers on a totally independent and transparent basis.

Michael Harkus, managing director at Square One Utilities, said: “We are pleased to be building what will hopefully be a very long-term and mutually beneficial working relationship with HVR International Ltd, as our continued success is founded on providing exceptional services throughout the entire duration of our engagement.

“In addition to delivering significant savings by placing contracts at the low point of the market, we also assisted in maximising savings by aligning contract end dates to ensure HVR is able to manage its internal processes as efficiently as possible.

“As experienced energy consultants, we offer a full range of energy related services such as assisting HVR with regards to the installation of metering to a new substation.

“We pride ourselves on being highly ethical and trusted consultants, offering a customer-driven service within the energy sector. Our long-term success is based on delivering the very best products and services to ensure our clients can minimise their costs whilst also benefiting from the highest level of customer service.”
