CNG is one of the fastest growing, privately-owned companies in the UK, having established itself as the gas supplier of choice for discerning businesses seeking a real alternative to what is available in the sector today.

In the few years, the company has grown considerably with turnover more than tripling as demand for CNG’s products has steadily increased. CNG is also carving a name for itself as the shipper of choice for many other suppliers, proud to be playing a role in the increased competition within the industry. The team claims increasing competition makes the market a healthier place to do business and drives up standards for the customer.

Clients include SMEs through to large corporate and multi-site businesses. With a Net Promoter score well above industry average, it is clear the CNG model of ‘Customer First’ is working.

An innovative, competitive business, CNG has developed a portfolio of products that place quality service provision and product choice at its core. Built on strong networks and mutually beneficial relationships with brokers; CNG secures the very best deals for customers, tailoring solutions to meet individual requirements.

Always looking to improve, CNG launched a strategy aimed at returning the balance of power to energy users and helping to create a more transparent industry. Following a comprehensive business and market audit. The Power Up initiative is an industry leading commitment to give customers, partners and suppliers more power through better communication and market-leading customer service commitments.

The business has invested heavily in its desire to stand out from the industry crowd and some on-going and in-depth team training created the CNG values, which the team unanimously agrees is what separates them from the competition. By embodying them entirely, the vales of: Open, Honest, Fun, Fair, Care and WOW, CNG is carving a niche and showing customers nationally that independent can be best.
