Simona Saves $200,000 by Replacing an Existing Energy Broker

Replacing an Existing Energy Broker

SIMONA AMERICA Inc. is the US subsidiary of SIMONA AG, a German company that is one of the leading manufacturers and distributors of thermoplastic semi-finished parts.

Prior to contacting us, the company had been handling procurement through a traditional broker, and they had – for the most part – been satisfied with the results. As an MAEA member, however, the Simona management team had heard good things about us, and they called us to take advantage of our free consulting offer.

We agreed that their broker had brought them a reasonable price on their current contract. Nevertheless, operating in the same market conditions, we presented a 3-year contract that delivered an incremental 8% savings – almost $200,000 over the contract term.

In addition, we agreed to monitor bills for the remaining two years of their current contract, although we were not the broker of record.

That’s the advantage of working with a professional energy consultant, instead of just a broker. We know:

• WHEN to buy. We track energy market trends every day, and
we advise you how and when to use the trends to your advantage.

• WHERE to buy. We know the strengths and weaknesses of
every energy supplier in your area, and our proprietary auction process creates intense head-to-head competition among them.

• HOW to buy. We help you avoid the landmines in contract
language, regulatory changes, tax exemptions, and billing errors.

You’ll see every available price and gain valuable insights into the key issues of energy procurement. All with minimal investment of your time.

Please give us a call to see how we can save you money and make your job easier!

The broker was given an opportunity to present his best price, and then we went to work. We brought 10 suppliers to the auction, and substantially bettered the broker’s results.

When the auctions were complete, we saved this Wolfe Dye & Bleach $170,000 over two years:
