We are pleased to announce that leading textile business North Vale Doubling, based in Brighouse, has joined 6C Energy.
Established in 1872, the family-owned business has over 140 years' experience of winding and twisting natural and man-made yarns, used in everything from high-end suiting, knitwear, hand knitting and craft products to transport interiors, floor matting, industrial belting and much more.
The textile manufacturer was spending a significant sum per year on its electricity bills through the various processes involved in the production of the yarn.
Michael Airey, managing director said: “As a member of the Calderdale and Kirklees Manufacturing Alliance (CKMA), and a founding member of the steering group, I went along to one of the 6C roadshows to find out more about the scheme and how it could benefit local manufacturing businesses.
“After hearing more about what was on offer I decided to sign up North Vale Doubling to the scheme so that we could benefit from a reduction in our energy costs, and to handover the management of our energy contracts to experts at Orchard Energy which would save us a great deal of time researching the best available rates for our business.
“Orchard Energy will now handle all the forecasting which means we can concentrate on running the business effectively.”
Dru Widdowson, new business executive for 6C said: “Since the launch of 6CEnergy in September 2015 we’re been reducing energy costs for a number of customers operating in different sectors across Calderdale, but it’s great to see that the scheme has helped a local textile business operating at the home of the British textile industry in West Yorkshire.
“The 6C Energy team strives to secure the best rates for our clients through our proactive purchasing and quality energy reduction guidance and we look forward to bringing many more Calderdale businesses on board.”
