Gary Kerr, Founder and MD of EPM Solutions (award winning engineering asset management company) recently welcomed approx 30 businesses to its new premises in William Street in the West End of Paisley for an informal evening of networking. Guests learned about what EPM do and their journey to a Paisley based company with a global reach boasting an impressive range of clients that include names such as BAA, Chivas,Rolls Royce, BP and the MoD.
After his presentation and tour of their new HQ, Gary introduced Mark Pettigrew from CodeRed Fire Safety, a company he is mentoring. (A free service managed by Renfrewshire Chamber). Mark talked about the challenges of starting a new business and shared some advice from their experience and the benefits of having a business mentor.
Gary commented “The event was a great success, with a good mix of interested guests, food & drink, short informative presentations and the time & space to network. I do believe that business was also done on the night – which is great. Renfrewshire has some fantastic businesses. Companies in Paisley and beyond need to be more positive – and that is what we did tonight. If any Chamber members are interested in hosting a similar event, get in touch with the Bob Davidson, Chamber Chief Exec’ who can promote the event and attract interest. I also encourage any business, member or not, who thinks they could benefit from a free business mentor – to get in touch with the Chamber. It’s a great service.”
