Industry and Manufacturing

The UK industrial sector competes against overseas markets with significantly different, and lower, cost issues. Finding savings is vital for British industry to remain afloat in a volatile business environment, particularly in the current economic climate.

With such an intense focus on cost management, we at Utilitas often find the big areas of spend, such as energy, have already been looked at and brokers or consultants are in place, but with our no win, no fee guarantee you have everything to gain by asking us to investigate further.

We also offer energy efficiency and carbon trust audits that can present you with a business case against each area of spend; the former focuses on reducing expenditure, the latter on carbon reduction.

Apart from energy, we can help you identify further savings in:

• Work Wear
• Business Rates
• Communications Procurement, including Mobile Procurement
• Water Costs
• Waste

Cost Reduction Services

Energy

Our customers have a wide choice of suppliers for both electricity and gas. Some suppliers seek to build their market share, while others are happy to rely on customer inertia to maintain a higher profit margin. With this balance constantly changing, our detailed analysis allows us to determine which suppliers offer the best value to our clients at any point in time. More info >

Waste & Water

 

Waste

Utilitas has an encyclopaedic understanding of environmental legislation, and combined with a deep insight into the waste services marketplace, we help our clients to maintain strict regulatory compliance whilst minimising costs.

Commission Utilitas to manage your waste services procurement and we will analyse the volume and type of waste generated by your business, and closely examine existing waste disposal contracts to ensure your current service provider is meeting your requirements. If you’re happy with your existing level of service, we can negotiate discounts against ongoing contracts, or we can put multiple waste streams out to tender to optimise service and minimise costs.

As with any of our cost management services, we will continue to audit your invoices for billing errors and unauthorised charges, plus we’ll recommend additional changes any time we identify an opportunity to further reduce costs.
