Equipment supplier looks to cut energy use
Salford-based engineering equipment supplier, Wilkinson Star, is investigating measures to reduce its energy consumption following support from the Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub.
With a growing proportion of its work coming from large blue chip or public sector clients, who place a higher value on environmental performance when selecting suppliers, Wilkinson Star is looking to reduce its energy consumption and carbon footprint.
An on-site review from Alasdair Dalzel-Job, environmental business advisor at the Business Growth Hub, identified a number of potential measures Wilkinson Star could take to realise cost and carbon savings.
Steve Murray, operations director at Wilkinson Star, said: “The Business Growth Hub’s support is a fantastic toolkit for us to call upon. Not only will the opportunities we implement cut costs and reduce our environmental footprint, they will also help us to attract new clients.”
