Fylde-based Inspired Energy has completed the acquisition of Squareone Enterprises Ltd, a provider of energy procurement, energy management and water procurement services,  for an aggregate consideration of up to £1.3 million.

Squareone is based in Boldon, Tyne and Wear, close to the head office of Churchcom Limited, a company acquired by Kikrham-based Inspired in April 2017.

Squareone provides energy consultancy and procurement services to a range of corporate customers, with a strong presence in the education and manufacturing sectors.

Squareone was founded in 2004 and provides energy procurement, energy management and water procurement services to UK corporates, and has been recognised in the sector for excellent customer service.
