Growth and Jobs Radiate from North Yorkshire

February, 2012

The Economy Radiator Company, supplier of state-of-the art electric radiators is going from strength to strength and hopes to be an oasis in the desert of joblessness.

Since the company was founded in 2008, Michael Wood, MD and Entrepreneur has seen sales double year on year first to £2.5 million per annum (March 2011) and will achieve sales of £4 million by the end of March 2012.

Michael’s next milestone for the business is to grow sales to £9 million by 31 March 2013.

The Economy Radiator Company has recently taken on two members of staff this year bringing the total number of employees to seven. Further to this the company will be on a recruitment drive this summer to build up the team and develop a new weekend team, ready for the busiest part of the year and for the launch of a new product.

All the staff are from the local area and live within a three mile radius of the company’s Head Office in the village of Sessay. Michael Wood said: “We want to make sure that the community knows we are here and that we are a good company that is dedicated to continued growth and creating local jobs.”

Economy Radiators’ MD is not surprised with Which? Energy Report
Recently Which? has conducted a big ring-around the energy suppliers and ‘exposed serious failings’. In a third of calls energy companies gave Which? the wrong answer.

To add to this tale of incompetence Which? also found that consumers could be worse off if they changed energy supplier through salespeople they may come across in shopping centres and supermarkets, by up to a staggering £300 a year.

Michael Wood MD, Economy Radiator, is shocked but not surprised by this news, he said, “One thing I always advise anybody who calls my company is that you should never ring an energy supplier to ask about tariffs because you may not be given the best rate available.

“Many of my customers have also echoed the findings of Which?; it’s a saddening reality that we can’t trust these big companies to give us all the information. The best way to check energy tariffs is to use the online comparison sites, UK Power being one I would recommend, always check the rates and try to get to as near 8p kWh for electricity as possible.”
