Burkert Innovative Solutions Ltd want to thank Wirral Chamber of Commerce and University of Salford Structures and Enterprise team for the support recieved so far for its Click Fix product.
The journey started with Bradley Burkert attending a business workshop at Wirral Chamber of Commerce and talking with Business Growth Manager, Lisa Furlong about the innovation journey. This conversation led to Chamber support provided under the Business Growth Programme and also an introduction to the testing facilities at Salford.
Whilst Click Fix is already on sale at main suppliers, to commercialise it more widely and overseas Burkert Innovative Solutions needed certified pressure test reports. The University of Salford carried out four tests in a controlled laboratory on Click Fix, which resulted in proving a 55 bar (equivalent to 800psi) pressure test and held for 30 minutes before being released. With the resulting report Burkert Innovative Solutions can advance their sales and marketing strategy over the next 12 months.
Lisa Furlong and Gary Bateman from University of Salford met with Bradley and team on 5th September to develop their twelve month strategy and further signposting in a great example of partership and collaboration. Signposting included introductions to the Department for International Trade (DIT).
Burkert Innovative Solutions hope to have continued engagement and success with both organisations and are making good use of the events and support on offer through their Wirral Chamber of Commerce membership.
Bradley Burkett said: “We feel so positive moving forward with Click Fix now that we have the report. Lisa Furling has provided us with fantastic support from our very first contact and it has been great working with her and Gary Bateman.”
Paula Basnett, CEO of Wirral Chamber of Commerce, summarised, "Wirral Chamber of Commerce as an organisation which has developed during the past five years in becoming a key business player in offering productive support and advice to our members and new businesses. I am delighted at the success which is happening for Burkert Innovative Solutions and we will be looking to see what further support we can provide in helping the business move to the next level."
