Energy-saving drive at Shield Group

A tier-one supplier of castings and machined components has tapped into specialist support to manage its energy costs.

Shield Group, which operates from six different manufacturing divisions across Coventry, Leicestershire, Northampton and Oldham, has just hit £80m for the first time in its 69-year history. However, faced with major increases in production, Shield needed to better manage energy consumption. The company turned to Control Energy Costs (CEC), which successfully reduced the amount of energy used by 15%. Furthermore, a recent exercise completed by CEC was to reduce Shield Group’s Green Tax liability, resulting in six-figure savings per annum.
