hub South West to hold Information Days in Dumfries and East Kilbride to tell businesses about its “Building for Growth” Programme


Two Information Days which will outline the benefits to companies in Lanarkshire, Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway of participating in hub South West’s successful “Building for Growth” programme are scheduled to be held in February.

A public-private partnership funded by Scotland’s business development agencies and a clutch of Tier One contractors including Morison Construction, Graham, Morgan Sindall and Keir, hub South West’s development programme is aimed at ambitious companies in construction and related sectors based in south west Scotland.

The two events will give companies a taste of what the programme can do to aid their future success. The first information day will be held in Dumfries from 11.00am until 1.00pm on 13th February at Dumfries and Galloway College, Heathhall Industrial Estate, Links Road, Dumfries DG1 3JW where the speaker will be Martin Sweeney, a director of Rhino Contracts of Wishaw, a “graduate” of the seventh Building for Growth programme which concluded in November last year.

The second will be on 15th February at Damada Group, 5 Wilson Place, East Kilbride G74 4QD from 11.00am until 1.00pm where attendees will hear from Gary Thorn, MD of Cube Glass, Cumbernauld and the Main Award winner of the Building for Growth Autumn 2017 programme.

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 1 Contractors.
