Orchard Energy warms to business award
Jan 26 2010 by Henryk Zientek, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
A COMPANY providing firms with energy advice is the latest winner of a monthly business award.
Brighouse-based Orchard Energy Ltd was recognised for its success in the awards run by Huddersfield law firm Eaton Smith and the Lockwood-based Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.
The company, established by managing director Gareth Henderson in August, 2004, has committed itself to simplifying the energy management process for its customers. Orchard vigorously campaigns to make businesses aware of differing energy tariffs and payment plans.
Judges in the award said that Orchard has displayed “conspicuous success and growth” – employing 20 local people and becoming a prime mover in the utility intermediary sector.
The company has built strong relationships with the power companies – enabling it to increase its buying power and get instant access to the right departments.
Through hard work and dedicated support, Orchard has been able to eliminate the difficulties clients face when dealing with their energy process – resulting in clients regaining confidence and control of their energy management.
Orchard works independent of all energy suppliers, allowing its clients to enjoy complete transparency and total confidence in their recommendations.
The company works alongside clients – providing regular updates on consumption reporting, invoice validation, market intelligence, metering and general housekeeping.
Judges said this “trusted partner approach” has been key to its success and the reason why Orchard are this month’s winners of the Eaton Smith Business of the Month Award.
The award is open to all companies in Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield. For details, go to www.eatonsmith.co.uk or contact Ian Greenwood on 01484 821389
