Energy contract wins fuel Pentagon Assurance expansion

South Tyneside assurance service specialists, Pentagon Assurance, is expanding after more than doubling its turnover, securing several new contracts in the energy sector.

Since establishing itself in 2017 at One Trinity Green, in South Shields, Pentagon Assurance has more than doubled its turnover setting the business on track for continued sustainable growth this year.

Pentagon Assurance helps clients within the engineering, manufacturing, energy and construction industries across the UK and globally to successfully manage projects by managing risks and implementing change.

Alongside securing a number of subsea and offshore contracts, Pentagon Assurance has partnered with fellow South Tyneside business, The Energy Check, to offer energy audits to its business and domestic customers, enabling them to identify practical cost saving measures and sustainability improvements to reduce emissions and waste.

Pentagon Assurance Managing Director Barry Cooper said: “Our customers come from a range of industries and are looking to us for expertise to help them develop sustainability of their organisations by managing risks and uncertainty in project delivery.

“Whilst we have a successful track record within the energy sector, our partnership with The Energy Check signifies a change in our approach to offer an energy use initiative, which is not sector specific. Our offer together with our technical expertise in this field is what sets us apart.

“Our business is about confidence. Our results to date reflect the confidence of our customers, particularly in the energy sector and our backlog of secured work until 2023”.

The Energy Check have worked with Pentagon Assurance for the past two years to develop the energy management auditing service and gain certification for their UKAS ISO 14001:2015 environmental and ISO 150001 energy management systems.

David Winton, CEO of The Energy Check, said: “We started working with Pentagon Assurance to help support, build and maintain our UKAS ISO 9001:2015 quality management system. We quickly realised the benefits of working together and are looking forward to being able to offer energy audits to our customers across the UK, enabling them to save money and reduce their carbon footprint.”

Pentagon Assurance’s expansion has seen it move into larger premises in One Trinity Green and take on a third full time member of staff to support its growth and work alongside its network of associates, they are also now currently recruiting for an Admistration Co-ordinator. Recent new addition, Sales and Marketing Manager Nicola Halse has expertise in business development and marketing within various sectors including engineering, manufacturing, automotive and training.

Speaking about the opportunities for growth within the business Nicola Halse said: “The business is still in its infancy providing me with a fantastic opportunity to shape and develop our communications.

“I am hugely excited to work with The Energy Check. The opportunities are clearly significant for both businesses as the partnership enables us to provide direct sustainability improvement to a wide range of customers.”
