Case Study – Great Rads Ltd

South West Business Centre provides Business the capacity to grow 

Managing Director, Wayne Brown, utilised his knowledge and expertise of working in the building industry for many years to create the UK’s fastest growing Radiator business, Great Rads Ltd.  Using trade links to secure a comprehensive range of handpicked radiators delivered direct to their customer’s door, at greatly reduced prices, with a customer service beyond the norm.

The Challenge

Like many start ups, Great Rads Ltd started as a home business. After sourcing a product range and developing a website he was proud of, it soon became critically apparent to Wayne that he needed to find a professional office base for his company to realise its potential and facilitate growth. His vision included providing exceptional customer service, ensuring that his website was not just transactional, but a one-stop-shop, where it was evident that quality was paramount.

The Solution

Local to Torbay and South Devon, Wayne investigated the Business Centre at Lymington Road, and found it perfect for his needs.

Wayne said: “The offices here are exactly what I needed; a cost-effective and professional environment that gives me the capacity to see the business grow. Thanks to the supportive staff here, I have been able to easily move from my initial office here to a larger one, which has enabled me to accommodate new employees and focus my time on the direction of the business and engage with more manufacturers.”

TDA Business Advisors have introduced Wayne to the types of grants that are available to his business through the Get Set for Growth programme.

The Results

Since operating out of Lymington Road Business Centre, Great Rads Ltd have experienced a growth which has seen them receive double the amount of orders per month and exceed their forecasted turnover.

Wayne continued: “The growth of the company has been fantastic and something I am extremely proud of. The next steps are really exciting as I am constantly looking at new opportunities and avenues for the business to explore. We anticipate having a showroom in the not so distant future to enable us to work even closer with the architects, developers and designers that have shown great interest in our products.”

With an eye on increasing their market share in London, working with large project housing developers and developing a high-end, glossy brochure for their products, the future looks very bright for Great Rads Ltd.
