Bermuda Gas Appliance Showroom Now Closed

June 6, 2015

Bermuda Gas confirmed today [June 6] that the Appliance Showroom is now closed and that there will be no further appliance sales at the Company.

“Bermuda Gas will re-open at its 25 Serpentine Road location at 8:00am on Monday, June 8th to answer customer account inquiries, accept payments, receive gas orders and to open new gas accounts,” the company said.

“Retail customers without current appliance warranties are invited to consult the Yellow Pages directory to locate a service provider to meet their future repair and maintenance requirements.”

“The Company will honour its contractual commitments. Existing retail appliance customers will be contacted by Bermuda Gas regarding appliance warranty options available to them,” advised Judith Uddin, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer of Bermuda Gas.

“We will continue to update our customers with information in the days ahead. In the meantime, I would like to thank those members of the community who have offered their support to the Bermuda Gas family during this difficult time,” stated Mrs. Uddin.

Earlier this week the company said they will be re-organising their business with some 14 – 21 staff expected to be made redundant, saying “however difficult this decision has been for us to make, the change at Bermuda Gas is a necessary step.”

The company said that “retail appliance sales, parts and repair service businesses have not produced acceptable outcomes” and therefore they have “determined to focus exclusively on our primary business: the sale and delivery of propane gas in bulk and cylinders to our commercial and residential customers, as well as the provision of service to our commercial customers.”

      What the hell did you just type.

      • Hurricane says:

        Don’t even ask, Terry, check out the name.

        Who these people think they are is probably a large part of the problem. People don’t need an invitation from them to “consult the yellow pages”. COCKY!


        • Patsy says:

          I think Mrs. Uddin should consult the Yellow Pages for a new job……..also, a little sensitivity training wouldn’t hurt! REALLY, what an arrogant & rude comment to make.

  3. Anthony says:

    Unreal sale soon on remaining appliances

  4. Northrock says:

    This corporate comment is about as callous and cold as they come. Mrs. Uddin, I am a shareholder but I’m also a human being. Your comment – no doubt dictated by your Chairman and his CEO, basically says “Thank you for supporting us and our shareholders over the past however many years…now go blip yourself”.

    I understand the corporate mentality but I really wonder if all you corporate super heroes live in a real world …or do you just live for the piles of cash that you dream of. Do you care about the customers, do you care about your staff…one day it will all come back and bite you in the butt. I for one, will not buy nada from BELCO or any of its subs…except lecka lite power…ever again.

    And the shares that I own…they’re in a charitable trust so I’ll have to keep them until some sucker buys them.

  5. Fidel says:

    Well said northrock !! I wonder how fast they will contact the customers now !!!! Hmmm

  6. Finally says:

    @ Northrock…..most of the coporate super heroes do not live in the real world and their love for money far outweighs that of people. I applaud you for your post especially because you are a shareholder….very true and honest words….!!! If only more PEOPLE thought like you!!! ;

    • North rock says:

      A shareholder I am, primarily to support Bermuda business, not to make big profit. Belco is a monopoly with a very bright young-ish Chairman and a slightly greyer CEO but until they start realizing that they operate a monopoly and they can’t just sit up there in the plush offices and dream about big plans for the future. Maintaining the equipment is one thing but anything else right now is bringing pain to all of us. These people are pissing people off with the way they treat their Bda Gas staff and customers and their Belco customers asking for a rate hike …if they can’t figure out a way to be nicer and smarter…let somebody else try.

      • Terry says:

        North rock.
        It matters none to them.
        Your points are well taken and I hope you are sincere.

        Follow the dishwasher…………………………..

    Do you mean to tell me that an operation as large as BELCO/BDA Gas can’t find room elsewhere for their 14-21 staff members?

    Sounds to me like they are just taking advantage of the so called ‘recession’ to get rid of people.

    Maybe those who were kicked out should pool together their redundancy and retirement packages and open their own appliance store. Using every ounce of assistance that the above spokesperson has offered.

    Just a thought.

  8. Christopher Notorius says:

    My sympathy lies with the 21 staff who have just lost their jobs. Belco staff next?
