CBM Services Group have yet another growth milestone to celebrate.
One year ago today, Managing Director, Scott Bretherton received confirmation of the Group’s successful bid for a $50,000 start up grant in the 2018 round of the Queensland Government’s Business Growth Fund grants program.
The successful bid, undertaken jointly by both Mr Bretherton and Scott Watson, as a “shark-tank” style pitch, was awarded as part of the Queensland Office for Small Business’s program to support growing businesses diversify their service offerings to meet government objectives and boost employment in the State.
“Since receiving the funding, CBM has been using our grant towards the expansion of our business to improve medical, laboratory and industrial gases installation and maintenance service into new construction projects,” said Scott.
Specifically, the grant will allow CBM to enhance installation efficiencies through the purchase of a specialised Swagelock orbital welding kit that will automatically weld and certify stainless steel pipework on site.
“This device (pictured below) has accelerated the fitting of medical, laboratory and industrial gases on site to the highest quality standard” explained Scott.
“By implementing this new technology at CBM, we have expanded our services to include larger projects such as laboratories, hospitals, private and public health facilities and Universities,” said Scott.
“We have needed to hire additional staff to operate the specialist machinery. The grants panel saw a real opportunity to support us as a local business keen to create new jobs in this area,” he said.
“I want to thank the team that helped bring the successful bid together. This grant has been a big win for the company and has contributed to a strong year for CBM Services Group,” Scott said.
