Marble Fashions Ltd came to Invest in Renfrewshire for assistance – and ever since then they have been dressed for success.
The company – which sells a range of ladies fashions to ladieswear boutiques – has grown rapidly over the past few years with 800 customers across 14 countries.
The company began trading from its base in Hillington in 2008 with just five staff, which grew to 15 who now deal with both national and international customers ranging from Germany, Russia and Denmark.
Invest offered the company wage subsidies for staff, who are still with the business, and financial support for IT systems, security and CCTV through Invest’s Business Growth Fund
They also had help with the development of their export capacity, which over the past 18months has vastly grown.
Nick Williams, director, said: “Moving into to worldwide exports boosted the company in both the UK and overseas.
“Without Invest, we’d have never had been so brave. When going overseas you can find it’s difficult without money and come back with nothing but pennies.”
The move to international markets was a massive jump for the company but has been nothing but positive as it “changed the perception of buyers”
Nick says that Marble Fashions Ltd have big plans for the future and “without a doubt will be working with Invest for future developments”.
He added: “Invest in Renfrewshire is good because it’s important to push Renfrewshire companies forward. Getting on board and getting involved is better than just listening.”
