Information days aim to help firms build for growth

HUB South West will be hosting two information days this month where firms operating in the construction sector will have the opportunity to learn about the benefits of participating in the organisation’s “building for growth” programme.

The initiative is a public-private partnership funded by Scotland’s business development agencies and Tier One contractors including Morison Construction, Graham, Morgan Sindall and Keir.

The first information day will be held in Dumfries from 11am until 1pm on 13th February at Dumfries and Galloway College where the speaker will be Martin Sweeney, a director of Wishaw-based Rhino Contracts.

The second event will be held on 15th February at Damada Group in East Kilbride from 11am until 1pm where attendees will hear from Gary Thorn, MD of Cube Glass in Cumbernauld.

Gordon Hunter, supply chain development manager for hub South West said, “The Building for Growth programme is open to any business looking to grow in a sustainable manner by building the skills and internal capacity to take on increasing volumes of business. A golden rule is ‘no competitors’, leaving participants free to discuss any business issues, challenges and opportunities in a safe and supportive environment with a like-minded group of business people, with many of the sessions hosted and supported by our Tier One contractors.”
