Maclean’s Highland Bakery is an award-winning family bakery, based in Forres.
Maclean’s Highland Bakery were looking for a way to reduce overheads, so they appointed us to review and manage all utilities (LPG, gas, electricity, water and telecoms) across five sites, in order to identify areas for savings.
We carried out a full review of all utilities and provided the client with a detailed report outlining areas in which savings could be made.
We organised the installation of smart meters to better monitor electricity consumption and aid the verification of bills. We also organised an energy survey and interest-free loans for Maclean’s Highland Bakery, as well as providing advice for a structured energy conservation programme.
Our recommendations to replace most of the lighting with LED lamps and to install mains gas were accepted. We secured soft loans for the work and managed both projects.
In addition to identifying areas where savings could be made, we took over the management of all utilities, alleviating the administration burden from the client, as well as ensuring that all invoices were accurate and any overcharges were recouped.
