Ashbrook Roofing growth project

Ashbrook Roofing growth project Leader case study.

Project description

As an established roofing company with over 30 years' experience in the trade, the business recognised the time was right for further expansion.

Plans are to extend on the current site into an adjacent area, modernise the existing storage yard and extend the warehouse and office building, they aim to improve electronic ordering and stock control systems to increase productivity through commissioning a new magneto platform website (stock control linked and mobile friendly).

Need for project

A funding gap has been identified with a clear description of the impact made by the grant funding. And although some growth is likely if no grant awarded, it is at a significantly reduced rate and the potential outputs would drop by 60% to 80%. The applicant has given a clear rationale for the impact of delay in terms of risk of competitors outside the area gaining dominance in the market place.
