The Mullingar Chamber of Commerce has today announced an exclusive Affinity Scheme with Bord Gáis Energy. The joint venture will see chamber members receiving a substantial discount if they make the Big Switch to Bord Gáis Energy.

The partnership, as well as the Chamber’s new website, kindly sponsored by Bord Gáis Energy, will be officially launched by Minister for State, Darragh Calleary TD at 6.30pm, on Thursday 20th May 2010 in the Greyhound Stadium, Mullingar.

Commenting on the partnership, Paul O’Brennan, President of the Mullingar Chamber of Commerce said,

“This is a great deal for our members. We’re the first Chamber in the Country to present our members with an offer such as this. Given the times we find ourselves in, any opportunity to cut costs is an advantage. The deal we’ve laid out with Bord Gáis will certainly reduce our members operating costs into the future.”

He continued,

“In fact, in real terms, the savings our members will make, will translate into free annual subscription to the Chamber. So, not only will members get all the benefits of being part of one of the countries biggest business networks, but the joining fee or yearly subscription will cost them nothing because they’re saving a huge amount on their energy or electricity due to the fact they are Chamber members.”

Fergus Walsh, SME Sales Manager, Bord Gáis Energy, said,

“We’re delighted to offer members of the Mullingar Chamber a substantial discount on their electricity bills. We have ambitious plans for the Irish market and are committed to driving down the cost of energy in not only Mullingar, but throughout the country.”

Speaking about the advantage to Chamber members Mr O’Brennan said,

“It’s our duty as the Chamber of Commerce to make Mullingar an attractive and profitable place to do business. By taking small, but significant steps, and reducing the cost of doing business for our members, means vital cash flow can be preserved and our members can continue to trade through these difficult times we find ourselves in.”
