Brownlow Utilities has been successfully managing the group’s gas and electricity portfolios for many years.

They recognised there may be some issues with the water charges at the Doric Cake Crafts site based in Burnley, Lancashire which is a division of Doric FPD, a member of the Doric Group. The Brownlow team set about to review the site’s water and wastewater invoices analysing the charging services, tariffs and consumption data. A survey was then organised to provide a physical view of the water infrastructure and to identify where charges could be changed or removed.

The Brownlow team conducted a review of the water and wastewater invoices of the site, analysing the charging services, tariffs, and consumption data. They then organised a survey to physically inspect the water infrastructure and identify areas where charges could be modified or eliminated.
