Utility Alliance employees outside Old Docks House, Preston

Transformed Old Docks House welcomes another business to Preston...

UTILITY Alliance’s growth plans have continued into the new year following the opening of a base in Preston.

Utility Alliance was set up in Hartlepool in February 2015, initially with six staff, offering B2B utility services for businesses of all sizes.

Now, with around 250 staff employed from its Hartlepool headquarters in addition to another 120 in offices in Sheffield and Newcastle, the firm has taken over vacant office space in Preston ahead of its fourth anniversary.

UA has moved into Old Docks House having set up a Corporate Division to specifically target industrial and commercial markets with higher energy usage, and has created 12 new positions to run the operation.

Scott Parlett, Sales Director for the I&C Division, said:

"Having shaken up the SME and mid-markets, we’ve spotted that the traditional front-runners in the I&C market have all been bought, or merged, into other organisations and their focus and abilities had been turned elsewhere within the market.

"In response to this, Utility Alliance has set up the Corporate Division to directly fill the gap in the market for a responsible, high quality, risk-management process for utilities.

"Our team all have at least 10 years market sector experience, some more than 20 years and draw their experience from some of the largest organisations in the sector.

"Our expertise as a Division ranges across both the Public and Private sector also giving us vast knowledge in legislation such as OJEU compliant procurement, Section 20 dispensation, ERIC reporting, climate change agreements, and ESOS."
