SCORE FUNDING


FEATURE SPONSOR WORKING TOGETHER FOR INVESTMENT


• Le Mark – awarded funding at the end of September, the Le Mark Group, based in Houghton, Cambridgeshire, was granted £8,000 to undertake the launch of its latest range of its Dirty Rigger heavy duty gloves, designed specifically to meet the demanding needs of workers in the offshore energy industry.


Developed in consultation with riggers and engineers working on offshore oil rigs, drill ships and wind farms around the world, the new Dirty Rigger offshore gloves provide protection to engineers against some of the harshest weather conditions nature can deliver.


The SCORE grant will be used to part fund a global marketing launch of its bespoke gloves.


Steve Exon, Non-Executive Director of Le Mark Group comments: “We are very excited about our offshore range and the SCORE funding we have secured will enable us to undertake a substantial marketing drive, including exhibiting at LDI in November. A high profile entry in to the market will also enable us to steal a march on any competitors planning a similar product.


“We have been impressed with SCORE on two levels. Not only was the grant application process very straight forward, with help available at every stage, but we have also benefitted from the relationships the SCORE team enjoys within the offshore industry.


“In our case Richard Salmon brokered an opportunity with one of the country’s leading access and maintenance companies for the offshore energy sector and arranged for their engineers to test our gloves in the field and provide feedback. Such feedback, prior to agreeing the final design has proved invaluable.


“Whilst Le Mark has been established for over 30 years, SCORE funding is providing incredible assistance to a small division of a £5 million company, which will enable us to undertake a much larger marketing launch than would ordinarily be feasible.”


OPPORTUNITIES


Richard Salmon concludes: “With £25 billion being invested in the East of England’s offshore renewables industry by 2025 and a further 800 turbines approved for the region, there are untold opportunities for companies to get involved and become part of the offshore renewable supply chain.


“As work on East Anglia One is scheduled to start in 2016, the time is perfect for SMEs to think about how they can engage with the most exciting industry sector in the UK today and the SCORE team is on hand able to assist, both in funding and making industry introductions.”
