What our customers say

"To be able to move into the rapidly growing sub-sea and aerospace industries and quote for bigger contracts we needed to ensure our quality management systems were accredited. Investment for Growth has been able to help us gain these accreditations so now we can push forward to win more contracts and create further jobs." Kevin Henry, Owner, 3G Titanium

“Applying for the accreditations involved looking at how we could become more environmentally aware which is seen as an essential requirement in order to win work with many public sector organisations. We’ve now put into practice much of the advice given to us by the business consultant. Thanks to the support we’ve received from Investment for Growth we’re now winning new contracts across the UK and as a result are looking to recruit more staff.” Ann Izatt-Lowry, Company Director, Dunelm Geotechnical and Environmental Ltd

"Previously most of our business was as a result of word of mouth referrals. We would be very, very busy at some points and suddenly quiet at others. The support we’ve received from Investment for Growth in developing a new website should result in a much more constant flow of business and more jobs.” Terry Armstrong, Owner, The Holsta Group
