Independent builders merchants Builders Supplies (West Coast) and Higgins of Wellingborough are the latest signings to the Green Energy Centre franchise scheme.
Peter Worthington, managing director of BSWC said that he recognised it as a major opportunity to expand the existing business, while Higgins’ managing director Nigel Higgins recognized that merchants need to provide a broad offering for energy efficiency and renewable, one which was not just about being focused on government incentives which may be here today and gone tomorrow.
Lorcan Anglin, managing director of Green Energy Centre Limited said: “We are delighted to be working with Peter and Nigel. Merchants, who ignore the huge opportunity presented by low carbon future will ultimately lose sales. We firmly believe that independent merchants will play a vital part in the low carbon future.
“Our offer generates revenue for merchants immediately without having to wait for new legislation such as the Green Deal, but will also comply with it when it does arrive. I am delighted to see that these two forward thinking merchant have embraced this concept and I have no doubt they will reap the benefits in a very short space of time”.
