TWR Group Case Study

TWR Group Case Study

North East-based TWR Group are a manufacturer and supplier of high-quality aluminium and PVCu windows, doors and Bi-folding Doors for UK trade customers.  The growing company also provide specialist products for bespoke commercial projects.


In 2017, the group was planning an exciting expansion from its Hendon-based headquarters.  They moved onto South West Industrial Estate, Peterlee, and opened a secondary arm of the business to access new markets.  Of course, with new premises come new costs.  From setting up the buildings ready for the business’ needs to assessing the building’s power capacity, waste collection schedules and more.

Financial Director Laura decided to enlist the help of Great Annual Savings Group to deal with this while she concentrated on the management of the expansion.


Wasting no time, GAS got to work on the energy requirements of the 7620m2 new site, aligning the contract end dates for all meters in the company’s portfolio so their energy management and procurement could be dealt with swiftly and in one go moving forward.

Dedicated Account Manager Paul then proceeded to secure TWR the most suitable energy contracts for their growing needs, ensured the premises’ capacity (KVA) was sufficient and resolved any outstanding issues with GAS’ trademark customer-centric service.

Finally, to ensure the new buildings were running as efficiently as possible, GAS provided TWR with a site energy audit, identifying opportunities for energy improvements ranging from no-cost to capital investment.


  • Full, comprehensive account management across TWR’s four sites
  • Trusted advisory service to make the transition into new premises hassle-free
  • Energy audit on-site, providing further advice on cost saving
  • Common contract end dates created across TWR’s portfolio, resulting in reduced administration requirements for the business
  • Access to Great Annual Savings Group’s 12 other cost saving services to ensure the business is as cost-effective as possible


I can simply hand over the required information to GAS and they’ll get on with what we require.  I have a good working relationship with GAS and I trust their expertise within energy. GAS has become a useful partner of TWR and I look forward to continuing to work together as we develop the business.

Paul JohnsonGroup Financial Director

Paul Johnson is very much a home-grown talent.

He joined Great Annual Savings Group in its infancy, fresh from a youth career as a professional footballer with Hartlepool United.  He quickly established a reputation within the business and aced all required accountancy qualifications in the space of four years to become the Group’s Management Accountant.

Several successful projects later, Paul was promoted to Head of Finance.  When the former FD left GAS, he took on the mantle of the business’ most senior finance professional; boasting a string of incredible achievements all under the age of 30.


“I have witnessed phenomenal growth at the Group over the many years I’ve worked here and I’m looking forward to guiding the Group into an exciting new chapter.”

Interesting fact:

Paul made his professional debut for Hartlepool United against Bournemouth in the Football League.  Some say Danny Ings still resides in his pocket to this day.
