IT'S OUR 25TH YEAR AND WE'RE CELEBRATING WITH A 7'000SQ FT EXPANSION!
24 October 2019
Unless you’re new here, you’ll have heard us talking about our 25th anniversary, which we’re obviously marking in typical CNG fashion – lots of celebrations, charity challenges and community ‘good stuff’ to give back to our great causes! Beyond that though, our anniversary is a great point to reflect on all of our success and look to the future; what better way than by expanding our beautiful Harrogate HQ to make sure we’re able to keep providing people with the CNG service we’re proud of?
Can you believe we’ve added another 7000sq ft to CNG Towers?! Since moving into the former HM Revenue and Customs building in 2014, we’ve been growing constantly. Now that we have more than 50,000 customers and more than 2.6 million through our work as a shipper, we’re gearing up for the changing energy future and making sure we can continue to serve our customers without compromise on quality! Taking over the first floor of our building means we now have an incredible 23,000 sq ft and occupy the whole building – which is amazing!

We’re big on making sure our working environment reflects our personality as a business, our desire to be different and of course, our values! So, we brought back the brilliant team responsible for designing all of our spaces to make sure the first floor became symbolic of our exciting 25th milestone and everything we’re yet to achieve!
The new floor features stunning spaces designed by Rob Umpleby of RU Creative, another amazing Harrogate business. Rob just gets us, he knows what we like and how to make our values and energy present in every finishing touch. His designs were then brought to life and and fitted by Absolute Commercial Interiors. The first floor has fast become everyone’s favourite because the new spaces include a staff gym, the Gaines Bar (named after our founder Colin Gaines) and a series of colourful break out spaces and meeting rooms! We’re biased, but we think it’s pretty incredible!

Talking about our anniversary, our MD Jacqui said: “To reach 25 years of CNG is something we’re incredibly proud of. We set out over two decades ago to change the face and perception of our industry, and while there’s always more work to be done, I couldn’t be prouder of the work our amazing team continues to do to actively boost consumer choice, energy education and customer service levels. They’re amazing!
“Our focus for the next 25 is looking at how we build a future that serves our changing energy landscape. Our renewables team is up and running and we’re working hard, listening to customers and brokers to ensure we offer a portfolio that works for them.”
If you’re in the area and fancy a cup of Yorkshire Tea and a quick peek at the swanky, new floor, then don’t hesitate – our door is open and the kettle is always on!
