Retail display manufacturer Display Logic has sought help from business development specialists Innovate Now for its exciting expansion plans.

The company is based at Ladyship Mills, Halifax, and hopes to increase turnover from £2 million to £5 million in the next three years and create new jobs.

Customers include high street names such as Dorothy Perkins, Links of London and Next.

Joint managing director Graham Sharpe said accessing business support helped him plan effectively.

“Innovate Now interviewed senior management to assess what we needed,” he said.

“We looked at staffing, the production processes and produced a business growth plan which allowed us to apply for a grant to purchase new equipment.”

Innovate Now, of Holmfirth, provides business support for high growth companies, local authorities, education providers and government.

Director Jane Hurn said: “An employer survey conducted on behalf of Calderdale Council in 2013 revealed that the top three areas in which employers feel they would benefit from advice was with regard to grants and loans; marketing; statutory legislation and finance.

“These issues can become real barriers to growth but with detailed planning and support they can also help a company push forward and exceed its growth targets.”

The partnership came together via Business Growth Calderdale.
