Demand among Bedford businesses to tackle spiralling energy costs has proved to be good news for one company which offers savings solutions.

Princeenergy, part of the long established Princebuild Group based at Woburn Road Industrial Estate in Kempston, is having to restructure its business and employ more staff to cope with increasing demand.

The company has created a new division under the banner of Princeenergy, amalgamating a full range of building services providing ‘a one stop shop’.

Mark Asplin, director, said: “Since creating our renewables energy division in 2011 we have had great success by marketing our services under the banner of Princeenergy.

“However, we have acknowledged that existing and potential clients are not so aware of our company’s full range of services in the sustainable energy sector and the building services division that we have operated since the inception of our business in 1971.

“The amalgamation of the two company divisions under the one group heading of Princeenergy was the obvious business decision to make.”

The building services department which will now form part of the Princeenergy division specialises in plumbing, electrical, mechanical and air-conditioning, and provides a consultancy, installation and maintenance service using a team of more than 50 qualified staff and engineers.

Mr Asplin added: “This area of our company has seen significant growth over the last three years and we would like to see this growth continue by increasing the awareness of the one-stop service that we provide.”

The division is set to create more jobs and career progression, and testament to this is the promotion of Jim Manning to associate director, who has worked for the group for more than 20 years and will be responsible for leading Princeenergy to new growth.
