Energy price cap – John Reid & Sons (Strucsteel) Ltd comment

Simon Boyd, managing director of John Reid & Sons (Strucsteel) Ltd, said: “The price cap is to be broadly welcomed as it is significantly less than the rate we have been quoted by industry suppliers although it is still an increase of 100% on our current cost.
