Gregg Latchams brings Chinese green business to the UK

16 April 2015 | Paul Hardman

Gregg Latchams has been helping Chinese SME’s set up in the UK, and working with local representatives in China to serve the needs of South West businesses looking to do business in China. 

Holley Metering Limited is a new Gregg Latchams client. It is a Chinese cross-regional and export-oriented company focusing on R&D, manufacture and marketing of energy meters. With 38 years experience in metering field, Holley is  one of the biggest meter manufacturers in China.

Paul Hardman first met the business on a Red Dragon Advisors trip to Hangzhou, and an interest was sparked because of the firm’s environmental technology focus. He says:

“It’s a niche where we have useful expertise, so it was a good match for us. We could bring our knowledge of the green technology scene in the UK as well as our legal advice to bear.

Holley Metering design and manufacture smart meters which put an end to estimated bills and will make it easier for customers to switch energy suppliers.

It is part of our policy that we are willing to invest our time and expertise in clients, who we believe have the relevant technology which can be developed into a profitable business. We spotted the potential for the use of Holley Metering’s smart meters in the UK market, and are delighted to have been able to help them get up and running here.

Green technology is a focus for Gregg Latchams. Sustainability is important in a commercial context, both because of legislative pressures, and because it makes good business sense. Innovations like Holley Metering’s smart meters will make it simple for people to make better decisions about the energy they use.

Making smarter energy decisions is important to us, and we’ve been working on our own environmental footprint for several years. We adopted the Green Pledge, took up (and won) the Carbon Challenge in 2013, and are committed to reducing our carbon emissions annually.”
