This month, energy price comparison company Exchange Utility are set to open the doors to their new Bury headquarters, allowing them to expand their team by 250 members.
First set up in 2014, Exchange Utility quickly worked to gain a reputation as the go-to option for price comparison and savings on business energy and other utilities. The move to Bury coincides with their still-growing popularity, as demand is now such that a larger premises and a much larger team are now necessary.
When asked about the move, Exchange Utility director Kelly Ivison had this to say: “Our renovation of Athenaeum House on Market Street allows us to grow our talented team of 160 people to 410. Bury represented the perfect fit for our company to continue to prosper, and make a real contribution to the local community. The opening of our site on Market Street, in addition to our current site on Bury New Road Heap Bridge, puts us in prime locations to attract potential employees from right across the borough.”
Fellow company director John Baker went on to say “It will give our employees excellent access to transport, leisure and retail. We are a company that pride ourselves on our friendly culture, and our mission to save businesses money.”
The leader of the Bury Council, Mike Connolly, also commented on the new opening, saying: “Having a strong and thriving local economy is crucial for Bury, and helping to create and maintain that is one of the council’s very top priorities. We warmly welcome Exchange Utility to Bury; they are an excellent business, firmly founded on family values. This move secures further employment opportunities in the local area, as well as increasing footfall in the town centre. We will continue to work with the team at Exchange Utility to ensure that their move is successful.”
