How your business can improve its profits without generating any extra sales thanks to one actionable (and very affordable) step

IF someone told you your business or organisation could improve its profit margin without generating any extra sales, what would you say?

Having been in business for more than 30 years, the first thought that crossed our minds here at Martin Dixon Ltd was: What's the catch?

So, imagine how surprising it was when we found out how to do exactly that - make more profit without generating any additional income.

You might be wondering:

How can I do that?

Well, that's the best bit:

All we did was swap the lights in our head office here in Hull from traditional fluorescent bulbs to commercial LED lighting.

Since taking this step a few years ago, our energy bills have fallen dramatically - and they continue to be lower than ever.

In fact, when our financial team recently sat down and worked out the sums involved the fact we've had commercial LED lights installed has saved the business around 85% on our annual electricity bill.

As most business owners and facilities managers will know, that's a lot of money!

Because of this, we now benefit from a monthly improvement in cash flow - and our property also boasts far better greener credentials.

Although we were originally sceptical about the savings this simple measure could help to make, that's not the case anymore.

In fact, the staff here won't mind admitting that they now preach about the benefits to almost everyone they meet.

That's why we have invested heavily in this technology to transform Martin Dixon Ltd into one of the biggest commercial LED lighting suppliers and installers in the UK.

Now we spend a lot of our time helping businesses and organisations from a wide range of sectors to take advantage of these energy-saving tactics.

That's not all, though, it gets better:

Because of the numerous funding options that are now available, there can be NO upfront costs for taking this step.

This allows you to reduce your operating costs immediately - without worrying about how to finance the project.

Yes, there are a whole host of other secondary benefits that commercial LED lighting can bring - and you can find out all of those details with just one click.

But if you are interested in getting a cost-efficient project started and want to find out more, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

At Martin Dixon Ltd, we are now offering a FREE Energy Audit on any premises to help identify where and how you could save money.

Email info@martindixonltd.co.uk or call (01482) 574174 now to arrange your free no-obligation energy-saving assessment.

We can guarantee it's one phone call you won't regret.

Client Testimonials

Allan Whitehead, site manager, South Cave CE Primary School

Martin Dixon Ltd were brilliant. They stood out ahead of all other firms we looked at across the country as they could offer us the complete package. It was great to use an established local company with the expertise to deliver this for us, and throughout their time on site they were superb. Financially, the savings and extra income will allow us to run the school for a year at no cost to us.

Janet Huscroft, Headteacher, Hook CE Primary School

I was introduced to the work of Martin Dixon at an awareness raising meeting organised by the local NAHT Association. They installed solar panels and LED lighting throughout the school. The work was promptly carried out during the summer break of 2015, we are delighted with the results. I would have no hesitation in recommending Martin Dixon as a company to fulfil what they promise.

Alison Risebury, School Business Manager, Swinefleet Primary School

After just having had our LED lights fitted in school this week, I just wanted to get in touch to say thankyou to Martin Dixon for the work you did. All lights are now changed making a massive difference to the lighting within our school and hopefully to our electrical costs! Many thanks for the level of service that you have given us.
