Martin Dixon recognised as leading renewables firm with Green Award at HDM Business Awards

MARTIN Dixon has been recognised for leading the way in providing renewable energy solutions to homeowners and businesses, claiming the Green Award at the prestigious Hull Daily Mail Business Awards.

The award was collected by founder and managing director Martin Dixon in front of an audience of more than 350 business leaders from across East Yorkshire last night, including City of Culture 2017 chair Rosie Millard, and guest speaker Lord Mandleson, the High Steward of Hull.

It came as judges were impressed with our commitment to creating local employment, working with schools to install and promote the benefits of green energy, and our success in winning big contracts nationally.

Business development manager Frank Saunders said: “This is much deserved recognition for an excellent team of people at Martin Dixon Ltd, who are dedicated to delivering the very best customer service, and have been so for more than 30 years.

“We have enjoyed great success over the past 12 months as we have established ourselves as a leader in green energy, not only in Hull and East Yorkshire, but across the UK.

“It has brought growth for the business, and importantly job creation within the city in a sector which is key to the region’s prosperity going forward.

“Our approach has never been to give customers a hard sell on green energy. We try to educate them about the benefits, and we find that by doing that, people want to save money, improve their energy efficiency, and turn to renewable energy.

“We believe this award underlines our position as a true leader in all forms of renewable energy, not only locally, but nationally. We are very proud of our achievements, but we won’t stand still and we will continue to grow.”

Speaking after the ceremony, the Mail’s editor, Neil Hodgkinson said: “We had a huge number of entries for the awards and I know the judges had a tough time choosing.

“Just getting shortlisted was difficult enough but the winners really do have something to be proud of.”

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.
