This week’s #madeinsandwell Monday stars could wave a wand (sort of!) and get your entire team looking the business.
Wizard Pro Gear Ltd (www.wizardpro-gear.co.uk) is a supplier of workwear uniforms, promotional clothing and PPE (personal protective equipment), operating from the Mornington Park Industrial Estate in Smethwick.
Established in 2002, the company has state-of-the-art embroidery and printing machines. Its operators have many years of experience to ensure that the quality of the branded clothing they produce for customers is of the highest standard.
Wizard Pro Gear Ltd had a recent boost through the Manufacturing Growth Programme (MGP), which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
Wizard contacted the Business Growth Team here at Think Sandwell and asked about accessing the MGP for marketing purposes. Our business investment and relocation officer Anita Gosain referred the company for digital marketing support, and Wizard received a £1,000 grant towards digital marketing consultancy.
Steve Kumar is a director at Wizard Pro Gear Ltd. “The grant will improve our online presence and brand awareness, giving more confidence to potential and existing customers in our business,” he said.
Steve also extolled the virtues of running a company from Sandwell, at the heart of the West Midlands: “Being based in Sandwell has many advantages such as transport links central to the country’s motorway and rail networks, including HS2 when it opens,” he said. “We are fully connected to all the major cities and business centres across the country. All of this means Sandwell is the ideal place for us to further develop our business and profitability”.
