How we've helped Element Engineering & Design Services
Element Engineering and Design Services Ltd (EEDS) is run by James Hutchins and offers a range of services for its growing national client base, including specialist structural design work for a variety of industries using the latest 3D modelling technology.
With a wealth of industry experience, James has used his skills and expertise to significantly grow EEDS, taking on three new staff over the last year.
The Growth Hub team is extremely knowledgeable and easy to deal with, and they know what support is out there. They understand the pressures of running a business and don’t get in the way.
How we helped
Like many small business owners James was so focused on the day job that he hadn’t had a chance to think about the future.
After getting in touch with the Growth Hub, James met with Mark Harris, one of our Business Connectors, to discuss the company’s direction and focus. By learning about its aims and objectives, Mark was able to identify tailored support to benefit EEDS.
Following the initial meeting, Mark suggested there was support available to develop a business strategy as well as funding and networking opportunities. James was referred to the Unlocking Potential Breakthrough programme, which helps ambitious new and early stage businesses to grow, and was signposted to Access to Finance, which helps businesses raise finance for growth.
James said: “I was unaware of the support available out there. Mark has a wealth of experience and it is fantastic to have him alongside us as we learn and grow. Meeting with the Growth Hub really helped us to look outwards and set off a chain reaction of people to talk to.”
