Exploring their options with HIE aided Russwood's innovation plans
Russwood Ltd is a Scottish supplier of high-quality, sustainable timber products. As wood specialists, they pride themselves on offering their customers an extensive range and unrivalled technical advice.
A company always looking at new ideas, products and markets, HIE discussed with them some potential innovation projects and the scope for significant future developments. We reviewed the possibilities and benefits of the design and manufacture of a new product as opposed to manufacturing under licence. Together, we identified that one of their projects could qualify for capital investment support, and thus, support from HIE.
“My experience with HIE’s Innovate your Business programme has been of undoubted benefit to my company. The opportunity to talk to a consultant, who really understands about manufacturing issues in detail, was a great help in developing my thinking in how to improve and progress our products and systems.”
John Russell, Managing Director, Russwood Ltd.
