How we helped

BB Wear had developed a new "Ultra" suit with revolutionary features for beekeepers who are prone to allergies, to give them the very best protection.

The suit has proved popular with pest control businesses who are leading the control of invasive species such as the Asian and European hornets.

The Ultra suit comes in several different sizes and also hand cut to outside the average size guide for a bespoke fit. 

They were involved with SWMAS who had been extremely helpful as they were trying to get a CE mark for the new suit, which would benefit them selling into Europe to pest control companies. 

SWMAS pointed Belinda and Mark in the direction of the Growth Hub. They met with our Connector and he recommended funding to help secure a CE mark with a help of a consultant.
