We’re proud to announce our launch of an Energy Partnership with the Northern Automotive Alliance.

We’re delighted to have been chosen as the first partner for the NAA’s new ‘Procurement Hub’ service, paving the way for future partnerships for the organisation.

Announced at its recent networking event, the NAA’s Chief Executive, Rowan Egan, said: “Each of our members has different businesses with different challenges, however what remains constant across all are similarities in their indirect procurement, such as energy, insurance, consumables etc.

“With so many providers in these markets, it can be a confusing environment, and difficult to identify those suppliers which offer the best service and best price.

“This identified an opportunity for the NAA to add value to its members through analysis of these markets, which is where the idea of a Procurement Hub was born.”

A big driver for energy being the first partnership as part of the new Procurement Hub was the fact that the price of energy has increased, and one of the biggest opportunities for manufacturers to reduce their costs is through reduction of their energy usage.

Following a detailed procurement exercise, the NAA selected Businesswise Solutions as the best fit for its members’ needs for the following reasons:

  • High quality service
  • Unique approach to reducing energy consumption through behavioural changes
  • Commitment to promoting the use of Green Energy

Peter Catlow, Businesswise director, said:

“Energy is a complex area and with costs ever-increasing it is more important than ever to understand where cost and consumption can be reduced.

“We’re here to offer NAA members our expertise and look forward to delivering positive results in coming months.”
