Magnet are the UK’s largest kitchen specialist and a popular manufacturer and retailer. The company has over 190 stores nationwide which require a great deal of attention when it comes to energy management.

Utilitywise has worked with Magnet since 2015 providing a Risk Management Flexible Contract service. We carried out a full tender to all suppliers to ensure the best contract terms were secured with the lowest management fee. We also helped the retailer to source the right DC and MOP contracts for their business to ensure they benefit from accurate and timely energy usage data.
