Hello Flamingo are a design and manufacturing company, creating bespoke displays for retail. In March 2020, they moved to a much larger premises, with a business expansion plan to offer more in house services to their clients. A CNC machine has been on their wish list since they founded the company in 2014.
The SEBB Grant was used to purchase a new CNC machine which has been beneficial to their manufacturing process, therefore, enabling them to produce quicker and achieve more. They can now increase their production and have full control as they now manufacture so much more in house
As an additional bonus, they have since expanded our business to create sister company Hello CNC – https://hellocnc.co.uk/ offering a CNC service only. This has opened up a new target market and client base which is steadily growing.
We’re really grateful for the grant and the support from the team at South East Business Boost, without the grant we would not have been able to make the purchase so quickly and expand our growing business. The support was brilliant, with help all through the application through to receiving the funds.
