Merger makes it easy to Think Utility

Two Yorkshire business owners have pooled their knowledge of the energy, water and electrical contracting markets to launch a new mechanical and electrical contracting company.

Think Utility Services has moved into offices in York Place in the centre of Leeds and will offer plumbing and mechanical engineering services alongside energy and electrical contracting.

The firm has been formed by energy strategist Chris Paddey, of PADD Energy, and Brandon Rowlands, who was previously director of electrical contracting business Pro-Elec.

They are joined by fellow director Stephen Lane, an electrical engineer who has built his career in the renewables sector. 

Paddey said the new company recognised a growing demand for energy and water efficient technologies such as low energy lighting and smart energywater management.

“Growth in the energy efficiency and smart utilities market has created a real opportunity for companies that can offer water and energy consultancy alongside mechanical and electrical services,” he said.

“Businesses understand the importance of reducing their energy consumption and they are looking to assess their usage and evaluate their options for low cost technologies that have a quick payback and can help them cut operating costs in a very short space of time.”

Think Utility Services will also offer maintenance services on existing electrical and mechanical systems, including renewable energy schemes.
