Nov 17, 2006
@UK PLC, the UK’s leading provider of online company formation solutions for business start-ups, today announces itsthe 100,000th company formed through its online formation service, achieved by setting up Eco Bio Fuels Ltd. Both @UK PLC and Eco Bio Fuels Ltd will be available to discuss the simplicity of setting up a business during The Business Start-up Show at Olympia 17th Nov, on Stand No. 630.

Eco Bio Fuels formed as a limited company using the @UK online system to be found at www.ukplc.net. The new venture is about to install a commercial plant to generate environmentally friendly bio-fuels derived from rapeseed and vegetable oils. The eco bio-diesel produced by Eco Bio Fuels is compatible with most diesel engines and can also be used with modified electricity generators that the company plans to market. A key market for both products is the public sector, including hospitals, local councils and government bodies, all of which will be looking to support government CO2 reduction targets.

@UK PLC has also supplied Eco Bio Fuels with a full trading website to allow them to sell and hire both fuel and generators online uk-wide on a “24 by 7” basis - see www.ecobiofuels.ltd.uk. This trading website utilises @UK PLC’s ground breaking eCommerce solution and will enable Eco Bio Fuels to target and trade with the general public, business and public sector organisations through the @UK PLC eMarketplace.

@UK PLC has worked with a range of public sector bodies across the country to get their technology eProcurement ready. This has involved ground-breaking work, with @UK PLC integrating its online network to the back-office systems of all types of public sector establishments, from major SAP, Oracle, etc., systems used by local authorities and hospitals to the individual PC-based SIMS system used in 20,000 UK schools.

Jonathan Bellanie, MD of Eco Bio Fuels Ltd said, “Using @UK PLC we just couldn’t believe how easy it was to set up a company from scratch. They eliminated the hassle from what we believed was going to be a rather arduous task. Using @UK PLC’s excellent website we were able to check if the name we had chosen for the company was available at Companies House, register it and get the ball rolling all in a matter of 10 minutes! Furthermore, @UK PLC has also been able to provide us with a fully trading website so that we can immediately get out there and target the widest possible audience; including the public sector in a way that saves the customer paperwork.”

@UK’s Lyn Duncan said, “In the UK there are around 3 million small and medium sized enterprises, and more entrepreneurs are getting going every day. We are delighted that @UK has become a key resource for anyone wanting to set up in business. Our service supports companies, irrespective of their size, through any stage of their business cycle, from start-up to the expansion of mature companies. We are thrilled that we have been able to launch such a dynamic company as Eco Bio Fuels which is helping to tackle probably the most important issue for mankind. We look forward to working with them for many years to come as their business develops and expands.”
