A COLNE Valley design firm has joined a list of outstanding suppliers.
The Design Mechanics, based at Marsden, has attained the full Suppliers Quality Assured Standard.
Companies accredited to the standard appear on an internet database.
The database has been created by development agency Yorkshire Forward and Business Link Yorkshire to help match small and start-up businesses with sources of expertise.
The Design Mechanics, which was set up in 2006 by directors Stewart Leahy and Dave Pannell, provides design and print services.
It is listed on the database at www.yhsuppliers.co.uk
This should provide a potential boost to its business.
Creative director Mr Pannell said: “Both Stewart and I started out as sole traders, so we understand how tight things are at the beginning.
“To compete with the bigger companies a new business needs good marketing advice and really professional design at the lowest possible cost. At The Design Mechanics, we can provide just that.”
Business Link Yorkshire aims to encourage all suppliers of specialist business-to-business services to register on the database for a chance to provide world-class support for the region’s new and growing businesses.
The Design Mechanics employs 10 staff at premises in Marsden and Meltham and attends regular business networking group meetings.
