Bri-Tek Technologies, an LED lighting company based in Bolton, is working with the Business Growth Hub to boost sales and achieve growth in Greater Manchester’s low carbon sector.
Bri-Tek offers the full spectrum of low carbon lighting solutions across commercial, industrial and domestic sectors, covering design, specification, installation and maintenance.
Founded in 2010, the company is aiming to capitalise on rapid growth over the next five years as LEDs and other emerging low carbon and low energy lighting technologies take hold in global markets.
Bri-Tek has been working with the Business Growth Hub’s Green Growth service since April 2014 to develop its environmental credentials and increase its exposure to local low carbon market opportunities in Greater Manchester.
Green Growth’s low carbon sector support is specifically designed to help companies like Bri-Tek to tap into the region’s plans to transition to a low carbon economy.
With Green Growth support, Bri-Tek has developed a robust and effective environmental policy, received advice on commercial tender opportunities and is benefitting from links to new market opportunities created by Green Growth’s resource efficiency support for SMEs.
Adam Swainbank, low carbon sector advisor at Green Growth, said: “I have been working with Bri-Tek for the last 6 months and we have been able to link them up with a number of LED lighting opportunities being created through our resource efficiency programme.
“It provides a great example of how Green Growth is helping to create and nurture opportunities for local low carbon suppliers in Greater Manchester.”
Green Growth is now in the process of providing funding support for Bri-Tek to undertake an online marketing campaign, and has also introduced the company to a range of other Business Growth Hub services, including Access to Finance, which is helping Bri-Tek to access new funding streams and opportunities.
Mo Hanslod, chief executive of Bri-Tek, said: “The Green Growth service has provided excellent support in helping my business to grow and meet our development ambitions in Greater Manchester’s low carbon sector and beyond.”
