Yü Energy are the UK’s fastest growing gas and electricity suppliers and service thousands of businesses in the East Midlands and wider UK.
In March, Yü Energy, were officially confirmed as the Headline Sponsors of the Nottingham Post Business Awards a role which sees them gain great exposure for their brand. But keen to extend their association with the awards beyond their headline sponsorship, the company have also placed their backing behind the most acclaimed category at the event – the Company of the Year.
Bobby Kalar is the CEO of Yü Energy and the driving force behind the company’s involvement with this year’s awards. Explaining more about their sponsorship of the Company of the Year category Bobby said:
“This category stood out for us as the flagship of the Nottingham Post Business Awards. As a business energy supplier, we work in partnership with all types of businesses across the region. We’ve been on the journey of building a successful business from scratch. We’ve won similar awards ourselves and so we appreciate what it takes to deliver excellence in our field. As a result, this category felt like a natural fit. It provides us with the opportunity to recognise an outstanding Nottingham business and the hard work that has gone into achieving this success.”
As a Nottingham-based business, Yü Energy undoubtedly play a significant part in the business landscape of the city. Speaking of the ways in which he sees the business contributing to the business community around him, Bobby said:
“As our business has grown rapidly over the last few years, we have created a significant number of jobs and now employ over 100 people at our Nottingham headquarters, with plans to increase this further during 2018. We work with a number of local Nottingham companies in fields such as Marketing, IT and Recruitment. A reliable and cost-effective energy supply is vital to the success of any business and we currently service over 1000 businesses across the East Midlands. We provide these customers with a high-quality commercial energy supply service, leaving them free to focus on what they do best: running their business.”
Being involved in a business awards event of this kind is not only an opportunity to look back on a year of fantastic business success, but it’s also a great way for businesses to look ahead to their own futures and boost their drive and ambition. Bobby is certainly focussed on the future of Yü Energy as he explained:
“We’ll be continuing to build on our success to date. We have just announced another set of record results for 2017 with revenue almost trebling to £47m and customer numbers up 70% year on year. During 2018 we’ll be investing even more in our systems to further improve our customer service and we are working in partnership with several Nottingham based companies to achieve this. We will also be continuing to expand our team in line with the growth of our business at both our Nottingham headquarters and our new Leicester sales office which opened in February this year.
“With the launch of Yü Water, we are one of the first suppliers in the UK to offer a one-stop-shop for businesses for their gas, electricity and water supply needs. This access to bespoke utility packages across gas, electricity and water will make it even easier for businesses to manage their utilities.”
