The company has relocated to Monkspath Industrial Estate from its offices in Cranmore, where it had been based since moving from London in 2010.

Solihull Council’s Business Support Team provided assistance with Valveforce’s initial relocation, providing a range of property options and supporting information about moving to the area.

Since moving to Solihull Valveforce has seen growth and taken on new staff, leading to the need for larger facilities. They have also quickly developed a strong client base in the UK and abroad, supplying industrial products and services for utilities into the NHS, Energy, Water and Food industries.

Marc Bozdogan, Director of Valveforce said:

“Having larger premises will give us an ideal platform to manage a string of new contracts and allow us to take on new members of staff.

“We found the application process really straight forward and welcome the support provided through the programme and also from Solihull Council”.

Councillor Ian Courts, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Managed Growth at Solihull Council said:

“It’s great to see the BGP support the growth of local companies such as Valveforce.

“Finance is a key issue for businesses and this programme is providing a stepping stone that enables organisations to realise expansion and growth plans.”

The Business Growth Programme is a £33 million business support programme designed to strengthen supply chains, stimulate innovation and grow existing small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) across the Greater Birmingham and Solihull, Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire and The Marches Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs).

Part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and managed by Birmingham City Council, the BGP builds on the successful delivery of the Business Development Programme, the Business Innovation Programme and the Green Bridge Supply Chain Programme.
