Businessmen face ultimate sales test Dynamic duo: Richard Shaw and Ray Spencer.

SELLING is a bit like style: you either have or you haven’t got the technique. Two Barnsley bsuinessmen face the ultimate test of their sales skills after opening a fashion shop. Richard Shaw, 30, of Ray Spencer, 20, opened the clothes shop Rehab in The Arcade after working together at Frank Bird Menswear and its offshoot Boardwalk a few doors away. Advertiser’s Announcement

Half price motoring with Proton’s new dual fuel ecoLogic range... PROTON has expanded its GEN-2 range with the addition of two dual fuel models able to run on either petrol or LPG (liquefied petroleum gas). At around 58p per litre, LPG has become an increasingly attractive alternative following the huge rise in the cost of petrol and diesel, but to convert your car to run on LPG currently costs between £1,500-£2,000. However, there’s finally some good news for the motorist in Proton’s new ecoLogic GEN-2. At exactly the same price as its petrol equivalent, Proton’s new ecologic range offers customers the rare chance to start saving money immediately. Even allowing for the slightly increased fuel consumption when running on LPG, customers can save around 40% on their fuel costs (Autogas Ltd.). Based on an average annual mileage of 10,000 miles and the prices of petrol and LPG at £1.12 and 58p respectively (source: Fleet News 20/08/08), this is an annual saving of over £500. Not only is Proton offering a full factory-fitted LPG conversion at no additional cost to the customer, ecoLogic owners will also benefit from 3 year/60,000 miles total vehicle warranty and 3 years RAC cover. LPG is not a new concept and is used to run over 140,000 vehicles in the UK currently and 11 million worldwide. Humberside Police have been running LPGconverted Proton vehicles for over 10 years, and with just over 300 on their current fleet, have saved up to £300,000 on fuel costs per year. Proton ecoLogic owners won’t miss out later either, with residual values

on LPG dual fuel vehicles recently found to be up to 7.4% better than their petrol equivalent (Fleet News). It’s becoming increasingly easier to fill up on LPG, with over 1400 refuelling sites around the UK, including motorway service stations and at major supermarkets. Not only is the Proton ecoLogic GEN-2 more economical to run, but it has been proved to be more eco-friendly than petrol and diesel. Typically, LPG produces less carbon monoxide, particulates and nitrous oxides than other fuel sources, plus a 15-20%

reduction in carbon dioxide compared to petrol. Even the production of LPG is environmentally friendly; it’s a byproduct of the extraction and refining of crude oil, which also means there’s a plentiful supply in the UK. There’s nothing complicated about dual fuel operation, the GEN-2 ecoLogic starts on petrol and then switches to LPG when it’s most efficient to do so, usually after about 20 seconds. Any very slight differences in performance will go unnoticed and the only visible addition to the interior is a switch on the centre console that shows the fuel level. There is a second filler cap next to the petrol cap, which is matched to the exact colour of the car. The LPG tank is situated in the spare wheel well, so owners lose only the smallest amount of boot space. The Proton ecoLogic GEN-2 has a 1.6 litre engine and is available in a sporty hatchback or saloon version, priced at £10,995 and £10,795 respectively. Customers will be impressed with the high specification that comes as standard, such as reverse distance sensors, air conditioning with pollen filter, electric front and rear windows, automatic central locking and alloy wheels. Both models are available with a leather interior, an option at £1,000, but for a limited time customers can benefit from a stylish black leather interior on the GEN-2 ecoLogic hatchback absolutely free. Cheaper fuel, reliable motoring, eco-friendly and at no additional cost. Now available at Lowerdale Autos Barnsley, the Proton GEN-2 ecoLogic is a practical solution for the UK motorist feeling the pinch. No catch.

Richard describes how Ray joined Frank Bird’s as a 16-year-old and soon established himself as ‘number one sales person’. The pair believe a good salesman or saleswoman needs two qualities: honesty and a chameleon-like ability to adapt to cicumstances. Ray, who grew up in Hoylandswaine and was educated at Penistone Grammar School, said: “The reason I sold more stuff than others was because I did not lie to customers. It is amazing how honest I was. “I have lost sales because I would tell a customer an item of clothing did not suit them. Yet the same customers kept coming back to the shop and buying.” Richard, who was raised in Cudworth and went to Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Wakefield, and Sheffield Hallam University, said: “Selling is about talking to people. You don’t speak to a kid from college in the same way as you do to a businessman or an older customer. “You build up a rapport with customers, remember their names, clothes sizes and recall what they like. In some cases, you even know the preferences of their wives. “A lot of people think they know how to sell things but many do not really have the knack.” The pair’s shop sells casual menswear and is aimed at under-30s. They say fashion is regional so the Barnsley ‘look’ can be different to that in Leeds or Sheffield and can be sometimes far removed from London. Richard said: “The Barnsley look involves dressing down. Casual is in. Sales of jeans have rocketed and sales of suits and shirts are at their lowest ebb.” When the shop opened in the autumn, about 150 turned up at a party. Many of those attending ended up buying clothes on the night and the memory prompts Richard into sharing a final, pithy insight into selling. “Customers are your friends,” he says.

Agency produces Ezz Steel brand

www.lowerdaleautos.co.uk

A BARNSLEY agency has designed a brand for the Middle East’s leading producer of high-quality long and flat steel. Ledgard Jepson has produced a logo for Egyptbased Ezz Steel. The symbol is a coil of rolled steel similar to the sun. The agency says the icon represents ‘a new dawn and a bright future’. Ledgard Jepson managing director David Exley said: “It was important that the brand gave Ezz Steel a visually strong identity to allow it to compete in the global market. “As the largest steel producer in the Middle East, we created a brand which is distinct but also stays true to the company’s philosophy and heritage. It helps it to further build on its creditable reputation in a competitive market.” George Matta, Ezz Steel’s marketing director, said: “Identity is very important to us. Through the branding expertise of Ledgard Jepson, Ezz Steel has been able to enhance its image as a quality producer in the world market.” The agency and the steel producer have worked together for about three years.

SPG Ltd goes Dutch with the Eriks Group A BARNSLEY firm has been acquired by a Dutch company as part of a multi-million pound deal. SPG Ltd at Oakwell Business Park, off Pontefract Road has been bought by the Eriks Group. The Dutch firm had acquired another UK business called Wyco, a supplier of industrial equipment including hydraulics and bearings. It needed to buy a maker of gaskets and bought SPG after a nationwide search for a partner. The deal means SPG will be able to target a number of new customers including Kellogs, the naval dockyards and British Gypsum. Eriks Group has sales of 949 million Euros and employs about 4,500 all over Europe. It has about 78 branches in the UK and manages the stores of a

number of businesses. SPG managing director Simon Noble said: “The Eriks Group acquired us because because we filled a gap. The deal has opened up a bigger market for us. “We were delighted to join the Eriks Group who will help us to grow and build on our success in the UK.” SPG’s turnover has risen from about £7m to about £8.2m this year and is forecast to go up to £9.5m in 2009. The firm supplies moulded seals and insulation products to a range of clients in the UK and Europe. It employs about 55. It was set up in Sheffield in 1971 as Seals, Packings and Gaskets and spent a number of years at Shaw Lane before moving to Oakwell Business Park in 1997.

Steel work is a slam WOMBWELL steel firm Billington Structures Ltd has played a major role in a programme to provide servicemen and women with up-to-date accommodation. The company designed, fabricated and assembled steel frames for a number of buildings for Project SLAM, a Ministry of Defence programme to modernise accommodation for single people. Steelwork projects ranged from 60 tonnes to 700 tonnes at about 40 locations nationwide. A spokesman for the company said:

“Billington Structures is proud to have contributed to this project which supports the UK’s armed forces by providing them with modern, comfortable accommodation they deserve.” Earlier this year, vice admiral Tim Laurence, chief executive of Defence Estates, opened the 10,000 bedspace under the SLAM project. Billington Structures employs more than 280 and works with a number of contractors including Balfour Beatty, Bovis Land Lease and Robert McAlpine.

Swinging designs: Rocking designs with a modern touch, Paul Brook and Alex Walton.

Clothing duo create some Mod-el designs TWO men are using images from the decade of their birth as raw material for their business. Paul Brook and Alex Walton, who were born in 1967, produce designs based on the Mod era for garments sold in six shops in the UK. Images produced by their Birdwell firm Stomp Clothing include a target, a Harrington jacket or a scooter. The pair set up the company about 18 months ago. Turnover is £4,000 and expected to rise to about

£30,000. They started using Mod images from the Swinging Sixties after being asked to do designs for scooter clubs. Paul grew up in Pilley and went to Kirk Balk School, Hoyland. He worked for about three years in the purchasing department of S R Gent. Later, he became despatch manager of a printing company in Wakefield called Bezier where he met Alex. Paul was made redundant after 18 years with the com-

Optical success is no illusion

Firms finance for future FIRMS have learned how a £24.4m fund can help them use research and development to beat the recession. The money has been made available through the regional development agency Yorkshire Forward. Research and development work must cost between £650,000 and £2.5m to qualify. Applications will be accepted until January 30. Alex McWhirter, Yorkshire Forward’s

assistant director of business, said: “In a climate when companies of all sizes are struggling to access finance for new developments, these grants should help our regional businesses retain their competitive edge. “The purpose of the IRD scheme is to provide an injection of finance for a project that will accelerate its progression to market and allow the company to expand or access new markets.”

pany. Alex is from Wakefield and is a screen printer. He is a member of a Yorkshirebased Mod-style group called Eton Rifles. The Mods were dedicated followers of fashion who rode around on motor scooters. Their rivals were called Rockers who wore leather jackets and rode motorcycles. The two groups of youths gained notoriety in the mid1960s for a series of violent clashes at seaside resorts during Bank Holidays.

Optical owner: Steve Graham.

A MAKER of prescription spectacle lenses has won extra work with two opticians. Barnsley Optical at Zenith Park, Claycliffe has won deals to provide lenses to opticians Brian O’Fay in Rotherham and Aveyard’s in Leeds. The company has about 25 customers nationwide. Turnover is about £250,000 and has risen virtually every year since the the firm was established in 1948. Owner Steve Graham said things had got tougher this year because of the credit crunch. “We have retained

our regular customers but work has slowed down because people do not have as much to spend.” He became owner about six years ago when the company moved to Claycliffe. The firm used to be run by his father and uncle and employs six. The company has been based in Shambles Street and Newton Street, Barnsley. Monk Bretton-born Mr Graham attended Priory School, Lundwood. Apart from a short spell as an apprentice joiner, he’s always worked at the company.

Firm involved in testing largest crane ship

Robert Davies (right) and Jeremy Hoyle (left).

A WOMBWELL firm has been involved in the testing of equipment on the world’s largest crane ship. Earlsmere ID made sure tools and other equipment aboard the ship complied with laws covering vibration. The ship, which is owned by international company Saipen UK, dismantles and decommissions oil rigs. Earlsmere ID flew an engineer to Spain where the ship was moored. Managing director Jim White said: Saipen UK contacted us about the job. It took about a week to complete. “It was by no means the biggest testing contract we have won but it was the most prestigious. We are investigating more offshore work.” The firm on Station Road industrial estate is the UK’s leading supplier of vibration testing equipment. Its clients include 35 councils and a number of gas, electricity, water, railway, building and engineering companies. It makes a range of colour coded safety tags for pneumatic, electric, petrol-driven and hydraulic tools and

a computer software package called Toolminder. The company, which was established in 1988, also carries out safety training. It is building an extension where it will test old and new tools for manufacturers and suppliers. The company works closely with firms such as Makita UK, Bosch, Echo, Dynabrade and Overton. Earlsmere ID became involved in vibration testing in 2004 when it became clear stringent laws covering vibration and noise was going to be introduced following compensation claims by workers affected by vibration white finger. That side of the business has been developed by directors Jeremy Hoyle and Robert Davies. Jeremy said: “Our system protects the employee and employer by ensuring vibration levels are not exceeded and are logged and recorded.” The firm employs 19 and has a turnover of £1.3m. It also makes tags which are fitted to the ears of cattle. It moved to Wombwell from Ardsley in April 2006.

‘It pays to advertise’ A PAIR of cabbies are finding that it pays to advertise. Mark Cocks, 49, and Nigel Denton, 54, have set up a business called Ads 4 Cabs Ltd which arranges for adverts to be placed inside and outside Hackney carriages. So far, about 34 vehicles have been given the treatment. The bulk of Hackney carriages, which are regulated by the council, are saloon cars so Mark and Nigel have come up with a headrest cover. This means the advertising faces passengers. The advertising material is pre-

pared by a graphic designer and printer and the headrest covers are produced in Barnsley. Mark has been a taxi driver for about 13 years. He was a cutter in the glass industry for about eight years and before that worked at Grimethorpe Colliery. Nigel grew up in Kendray and read geography at Newcastle University. He has driven Hackney carriages for about seven years. The company is restricted to working on Hackney carriages because the law does not allow private hire taxis to advertise.

Longfields Court is doing the business A WORKSHOP, factory and office development at Carlton seems to be bucking the credit crunch. Deals with a number of occupiers of Longfields Court, Wharncliffe Business Park, were signed before it was completed in July. Firms taking up space early included European Inkjet, Adrenalin Scooter Performance Parts, Baron BlakesleeEurope, Discount Clothing Company, Highways Engineering, CRG Sports, Trust Home Care and Home Asset Property Services. Chris Rowlands, managing director of Barnsley-based letting agents Chris Rowlands and Co, said: “Longfields Court is an innovative property development which

throws away the traditional landlord and tenant relationship in favour of a system where the occupier’s business budgeting, cost considerations and flexibility are paramount.

“The success of the development so far is testimony to this particularly in today’s difficult trading climate.” Operators DBH Serviced Business Centres Ltd have a policy where space can be

occupied from as little as an hour to several years. Fees cover rates, insurance, charges for gas, water and electricity, cleaning, waste disposal and car parking. Phone calls are

answered by DBH in an occupier’s name which, the firm says, gives a good impression to clients. DBH managing director Piers Goodall said: “Our customers benefit from the ability to grow
