Elland-based Orchard Energy has been shortlisted for three national energy awards including the title of the UK’s Most Trusted Industrial & Commercial Consultancy, one of only five brokers in the country in the running for the accolade.
Orchard has also been selected as a finalist in two further categories, I&C Most Innovative and Rising Star.
Managing director Gareth Henderson said: “To have been selected as finalists for three top industry awards out of thousands of companies is a fantastic achievement and one that everyone who works for Orchard has played a part in.
“We have built our business on honesty and transparency and we are delighted that our efforts have been recognised on a national scale.”
The firm was founded in 2004 by Mr Henderson and his wife Rachel and is now part of a utility management business employing more than 90 staff across four UK offices, delivering energy, waste, water, IT and telecoms support to businesses.
Mr Henderson added: “The Rising Star award commends brokers that go the extra mile to help energy end users buy energy as efficiently as possible. We are also pleased to have been shortlisted for the Most Innovative Consultancy award, which is for companies that are developing new ideas, with the needs of their customers at the forefront.”
