Merger ignites energy division growth for Core

Core Facility Services has completed a merger with Kirklees energy management firm FM Energy in a move that will pave the way for nationwide expansion of its energy and sustainability services.

The merger will see Core take over FM Energy’s portfolio of commercial and charity clients and widen its range of energy purchasing, efficiency and bill validation services.

Colette Watts, managing director of Core, said the move would also support one of the company’s fastest growing areas of business, sustainability management.

“Most organisations already understand the cost saving benefits of proactive energy purchasing but we are now seeing a real demand for a full sustainability strategy.

“Procurement teams increasingly look at sustainability when appointing suppliers so this is relevant to every organisation, whatever its size,” she explained.

Colette said Core’s sustainability planning covers wellness, waste management and staff engagement as well as energy efficiency.

“By expanding our energy services we can now offer a complete sustainability solution for businesses across Yorkshire which we plan to roll out into other areas of the UK over the next 5 years,” said Colette.
