Testimonial

“We have been using Beond for many years as they give our business the confidence that the electricity and gas contracts are being handled in a professional and timely manner. Since our 3-year contract came to an end this year the price of electricity has risen dramatically however Beond advised that we should consider other options before just renewing for a further 3 years. We took their advice and I am pleased to say we have a better deal now than just renewing. Since then we have acquired additional premises and Beond have just completed our contract with a further energy suppler which we have accepted. We look forward to continuing our relationship with them over the coming years.”
