2019 marked SMARTech energy’s 5th successful year in business and as we hurtle towards 2020, we’re really rather chuffed to celebrate the success of our company’s growth and the driving force behind it.
With our MD, Stuart Pearce a major champion of energy reduction initiatives within the commercial industry, it was no surprise that he was voted as BEST energy saving technology’s 2019 Energy Manager of the Year.
Bang on Trend
The increasing demand for energy management solutions and efficient technologies has led to the company gaining a growing reputation as a leading advisor for sustainability practices. This status means we’ve secured a record amount of new business with the likes of Framptons, MJ Church, NDoe Designs, Scisys, Beard Construction, Alan Nuttall and Clamason Industries to name a few.
New Product Launch
November saw the launch of our latest product offering, SMARTdrive. Its an energy efficient vehicle optimisation and delivery control system – which substantially reduces the operating costs of fleet vehicles. For more info on this exciting new energy efficient solution, check out our website.
A recent customer satisfaction audit managed by client engagement specialist, Enquir3, showed 89% of SMARTech energy’s customers scored the company 4 out of 5 on service and support, with more than 91% willing to refer our services. Whoo hoo and thank you – you lovely lot!
Expansion, Acquisition & Going National
October saw the acquisition of Minimise UK and the opening of new offices at the C4DI building in Hull – allowing us to expand our service offerings across the UK.
Going ‘national’ means we’ve needed to fill a few gaps in the team and bring on board some rather splendid talent.
- June welcomed Andrew Rodolfo – who joined the team as Junior Energy Consultant (following a 3-month internship from the University of West of England) and Jo Lumb – who joined as Business Development Manager.
- September saw Mark Hitchmough join as Account Manager, together with Richard Harris who joined as Installation and Maintenance Engineer.
- The acquisition of Minimise UK in October and the launch of our office in Hull means we’ve gained two new Sales Directors – Joe Wyn Griffiths and Leigh Everington.
- Clive Milner joined as General Manager in November, along with Refrigeration and A/C Engineer, Nick Adams. And finally, Marcus Dale recently joined the team in December as Project Manager.
Knowledge is Key
Energy Consultant, Carl Wood was invited to meet the Robus HQ team in Dublin recently. As a leading brand with a range of lighting solutions, we’re keen to understand the products which most suit our client’s requirements – and it just so happened that the launch of their new lighting range was the perfect excuse to enjoy a few pints of Guinness…
As an Authorised Installer of leading industry brand EcoCooling, we’re incorporating the latest tech to deliver energy-efficient evaporative cooling. Our Energy Consultant, Seth Robinson was with the EcoCooling team at the recent Construction Week show and features in their promotional video. Watch out Hollywood…
We’ve enjoyed an amazing year and we’re already on schedule for a huge 83% in growth! As we head into a new decade, our focus for 2020 will be to continue to address the significant demands and mounting pressures on organisations to cut carbon emissions and reduce costs. Its our thing and we’re good at it.
And on that note, wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the team at SMARTech energy.
