Client comments972-jsisk-logo

“Savings and opportunities identified to date, have changed how we do business and are helping Sisk to; reduce cost, price future work more accurately and deliver measureable reductions in our environmental impacts.  AEMS’ Conor Molloy helped us overcome the challenges of including road fleet and plant diesel in our 50001 project, leading to key savings results”

Padraic O’Connor, Building Services Department Manager – John Sisk & Son Ltd. Featured on Enterprise Ireland’s Lean and Green Case Studies page


“At the outset, we were given solid advice and guidance by Authentic to gain a clear understanding of what was needed to produce meaningful cost savings. This project is the cornerstone of our environmental policy into 2013, the results achieved in the first 3 months were most encouraging in both reducing our carbon footprint and in savings within our fuel budget, we firmly believe this is just the start of the process. Further savings as a result of this project coupled with the use of new technology are expected in 2013. This project has highlighted and confirmed that correct driver management is essential in obtaining the desired results.”

Jon Goodaker, Transport & Operations Manager – Virginia International Logistics. See also case study at REIL – Retrofit Energy Ireland Limited


“I found Conor to be extremely knowledgeable in the area of energy management. He provided first class advice during a comprehensive market analysis exercise in energy and technology aspects of a haulage logistics project. His excellent project management skills ensured that a challenging competitive dialog tender competition deadline was achieved. He was instrumental in obtaining a Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland grant for the project using his in-depth knowledge and networked contacts in this subject area. I would have no hesitation in recommending Conor as I found him extremely professional, customer focused and very easy to interact with.”

Mike O’Shea – Coillte Project Team Lead


“The service from Authentic was excellent, really practical and identified where money can be saved on fuel. I would recommend this service to any haulier seeking to improve fuel consumption and cut costs.”

Micheal Doyle, Financial Controller- BakuGLS Limited 


“As a transport company one of our biggest costs is energy. In two separate pieces of work for us Conor showed a simple, tangible way to save diesel. In the second he separated fact from fiction (or opinion) and showed us a safer way to route our trucks at no additional fuel cost.”
