With the aim of providing the best business electricity rates UK, Smarter Business acquired BAS Energy in July 2017. BAS is one of the UK’s leading independent energy consultancies, helping businesses manage, monitor and save on their energy costs.
Smarter Business were the original founders of BAS. The acquisition has brought great value to the customers of both companies. The Smarter Business group is now one of the largest energy brokers in the UK, with circa 250 staff. Our company is committed to giving SME and corporate customers the best rates and contracts across a range of core business necessities.
Strategic expansion of Smarter Business
The purchase is in line with our expansion and diversification aims, with BAS Energy’s attributes extending our offerings. As our name suggests, we are dedicated to helping our customers do smarter business through strategy and savings on core business services and utilities. This acquisition means that additional services like water deregulation services, facilities management, and energy efficiency services will now be available to BAS customers, adding another avenue through which customers can receive substantial savings. Customers also now have access to a trusted one-stop-shop for all of their core business necessities.
A full suite of business services
Smarter Business CEO, Bradley Wingrave says that BAS Energy’s attributes will help to further extend the core of the Smarter Business group’s offerings.
“Acquiring BAS Energy forms part of our expansion and diversification plans. We continue to drive the business forward, in line with our stated objective of expanding into other areas of business including recently deregulated water services, facilities management, energy efficiency and other business essential services. This wide range of services will deliver further substantial savings to all our customers.”
The purchase of BAS Energy by Smarter Business will allow the company to provide these additional key services to their customers.
Chairman Mark Read said: “We have an exciting future ahead and are pleased that this latest acquisition will uniquely position us to ultimately be the one-stop-shop for all UK Businesses, big or small in reducing overheads across a full range of core business necessities”
