British Gas Business
British Gas is one of the most well known household brands in the UK. Prior to the introduction of competition in 1998, British Gas (Centrica) was the sole supplier of mains gas in the UK. Competition in the domestic and business markets has decreased its market share, but it is still the major player in domestic and commercial gas markets as well as electricity. Centrica is active in the USA, Ireland and parts of Europe. The company uses 3 main brand names in the UK - British Gas, Scottish Gas and Nwy Prydain in Wales.
In total, British Gas Business supplies more than 950,000 business sites throughout the UK. Centrica has a market capitalization of around £13bn, 33,000 employees worldwide and is investing over £1 billion a year between 2008 and 2010 to secure new gas and power supplies for the UK.
British Gas is very active in the SME electricity and gas markets, using their own sales force and independent brokers. This is backed up with regular national advertising campaigns.
