We’re Mark Group and we love saving you money, helping you stay warm and toasty and reducing your carbon footprint all at the same time. As the UK’s leading energy saving experts, we’re great at helping you to take a ‘whole home’ approach to energy efficiency. And we definitely know our stuff; since 1974, we’ve helped over two million homes and businesses lose less (through insulation), use less (through efficient heating systems) and generate more (through renewable technologies).
We’ve expanded at quite a rate since 1974 and now operate on three continents with 2,500 of us worldwide all helping to install over 7,000 energy-saving measures every week, though we remain a family-owned business with family values at our heart.
We have smart solutions for homeowners, businesses, house-builders and the construction industry, local authorities and social housing providers. We also partner with major utility companies and leading manufacturers, allowing us to give you the best possible service and latest technologies.
Mark Group was founded back in 1974, pioneering cavity wall and loft insulation in Leicestershire and rapidly becoming the leading domestic insulation specialist in the UK.
Nearly 40 years on, Mark Group is a major international organisation, insulating more than a quarter of a million homes a year from regional distribution centres across the UK, as well as making inroads into energy efficiency markets in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
We began insulating homes back in 1974 and recognised that this is the first step in helping save energy, money and carbon emissions. Today, Mark Group help make over 7,000 homes, schools and businesses more energy efficient every week, across three continents. Our portfolio has expanded in recent years to include an increasingly popular and proven range of energy saving products.
As an international company, with operations across four continents, we work with a huge mix of individuals, businesses and communities in order to help people become more energy efficient. Part of getting our message across also sees us getting involved with both local and national organisations, giving back to the communities in which we work.
Mark Group was founded in 1974 in Leicester, England by John and Kathleen Cottingham and has grown to become a world leader in energy saving solutions. The core business structure was originally built around home insulation but with advances in technology and the rise in awareness of the need to reduce energy consumption, Mark Group’s business plan was tailored for prosperous growth.
Training is crucial to Mark Group’s business, whether it’s product installation, health and safety or customer service. With 40 years of industry experience under its belt, the business has a strong bank of highly skilled employees and it makes sense for this knowledge to be passed along to new personnel. In 2008 the Mark Academy opened its doors for the first time. A purpose-built facility containing practical training areas for every kind of technology.
The energy efficiency message is one which affects every country across the globe. So, with almost four decades of energy saving expertise in the UK, in 2009 Mark Group opened its first international office – in Sydney, Australia. Just over 12 months later, the business launched in North America, with headquarters in Philadelphia and in July 2011, made its first international acquisition, buying Right House from New Zealand utility provider, Meridian Energy.
