Businesses in County Durham are being urged to take full advantage of a Teesside University-led project which helps them to innovate and grow.
Billingham-based NYMAS, which manufactures bathroom and toilet equipment for elderly and disabled people, took part in Innovate Durham’s sister project Innovate Tees Valley and received help to streamline its systems and processes as well as developing new product designs and implement new design processes.
Craig Anderson, the managing director of NYMAS, has said the Innovate Durham project will help SMEs improve their business, making them efficient and competitive.
Innovate Durham and Innovate Tees Valley are led by Teesside University, in collaboration with regional partners, and work with SMEs to help them meet new challenges in their business and grow through product and service innovation.
Innovate Tees Valley has already helped more than 200 business improve services, products and processes and find new markets. The recently established Innovate Durham aims to help over 50 SMEs between now and July 2019.
