Low Carbon Network produces collaborative partnership
A pioneering online network for companies in Greater Manchester’s low carbon sector is helping to build links between SMEs, including a successful partnering of two local green technology suppliers.
The Low Carbon Network, developed by the Business Growth Hub, is a virtual platform for companies providing low carbon and environmental goods and services (LCEGS) in Greater Manchester.
Companies seeking specific low carbon technologies or services can use the service’s searchable online database to find relevant suppliers, while members receive tailored weekly updates that includes sales and tender notifications and networking opportunities.
Two members, Stockport-based KAST Energy Solutions and Tameside-based MegaFan Technologies, are now successfully working together to combine their expertise and create sales opportunities.
After meeting at a networking event for Low Carbon Network members, the two companies subsequently partnered and have already won two significant projects.
“As a fairly new company, we are looking to grow and identify more sales opportunities in Greater Manchester, and the Low Carbon Network is a valuable tool to help us meet like-minded businesses who we can develop a close working relationship with”, said Adrian Thomas, director of KAST Energy Solutions.
