Innova Solutions firmly fixed on European success

15 JANUARY 2013, LANCASHIRE, UK
Summary
Innova Solutions aim for European success with the opening of their second warehouse in Colne.

On Friday 17th January, Lancashire based bonding and adhesives company Innova Solutions, officially opened their second warehouse at their HQ in Colne. The high growth company who primarily cater to the sign industry in the UK & Europe, have seen improvements across all areas of the business, including record sales and expansion of the workforce.

The new warehouse development has been possible not only because of sales growth but also due to Innova Solutions being identified for the government funded Growth Accelerator programme, which assists high growth companies in achieving more. £70,000 worth of funding was also secured from the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE). Officially opened by Andrew Stephenson MP, the state of the art warehouse was constructed by local firm Dale Contractors and designed to fit perfectly into the scenic rural backdrop of Trawden.

Andrew Stephenson, MP for Pendle, said;

“Small businesses are really critical to the economy, what we’ve seen over the last three years is 300,000 new small businesses open, but seeing businesses like Innova Solutions expand, take on more people and work towards more exports is really, really encouraging.”

Additional storage space provided by the new warehouse will aid Innova Solutions in their aim to continue their already brilliant success with European exporting as well as boost their potential for increased domestic sales. Europe is high on the agenda for Innova this year, following on from their huge success over the past 12 months. Innova’s success with European exports bucks the trend for Lancashire firms, with Enterprise Europe Network North (EENW) warning small businesses in Lancashire recently that they’re overlooking European markets. As well as huge European success, the record breaking sales figures are thanks in part to the launch of a line of cutting-edge photoluminescent materials and NovaBond ‘XS’ High Strength Bonding Tapes, developed to deliver increased performance at no extra cost to the consumer.

Glenn Dunleavey, Managing Director at Innova Solutions, said;

“This year has been going particularly well, we’re looking to grow the business 30% in gross profit terms and the futures looking very bright for us and we’re aiming to get to 25% export. People tend to like British firms and British products, every time we get on a plane and go and see someone in Europe we come back with a new customer and an order."

About Innova Solutions

Bonding people. Fixing problems

There are high strength bonding tapes and eco-friendly adhesives for an infinite number of applications. Yet when you want one to meet your specific needs can you find the guidance you need?

When Innova Solutions started trading in 2002 we didn’t think so. In fact that’s one of the reasons for our very existence. How much better would it be, we thought, if you knew exactly why high strength bonding tape A was better for your application than high strength bonding tape B?

That’s what we do, with an enthusiastic team who know their stuff and take real pride in supplying exceptional adhesives and the practical advice to help you buy wisely.

Eco-friendly people. Eco-friendly adhesives

The environment has always been a part of our ethos because it’s right outside our door. With the beautiful Lancashire countryside all around us, we’re reminded daily that what we do – and how we do it – matters.

That’s why so much of what we do blends high specification capabilities with an environmentally-friendly formulation. Take the new NovaBond XS (Extra Shear) range of foamed acrylic tapes. They’re cured by UV, so no solvents are present in the production process or final product.

Or NovaSol NC, a non-chlorinated range of plastic welding adhesives which are safer to handle and dispose of.
