UTILITY Alliance was delighted to welcome Tees Valley mayor Ben Houchen into the business this week to give him an insight into how the company operates.
Mr Houchen spoke to directors Bob Moore, Darren Sutherland and Phill Moore on a number of issues, hearing how the company has enjoyed rapid growth since setting up four years ago along with some exciting plans for the future.
With Utility Alliance already on board with the Mayor’s Tees Valley Careers initiative, it is hoped the relationship between the business and the Tees Valley Combined Authority can be further strengthened moving forward.
Ian Willis, PR & Marketing Manager at Utility Alliance, said: “It is much appreciated that Ben took time out of his busy schedule to visit us, and it was good to see him taking an interest into how we operate as a business.
“The directors gave him an insight into how they have shaped the success of the business over the last four years, and it was interesting to hear of the potential of us working together on projects across the Tees Valley in the future.”
Mr Houchen said: “Utility Alliance is a great example of a Tees Valley business that is going from strength to strength.
“It was great to be able to get a better insight of what Utility Alliance can do for business customers to lower their energy costs, as well as their plans to further grow the company.
“Our region is renowned the world over for our engineering skills, chemical processing and heavy industry, but we are also forging a reputation as hub for technological innovation, and companies like Utility Alliance are key to this. ”
