Why it is important to show a united front to potential investors

“”

It is encouraging to see such a spirit of co-operation and that people are looking at the bigger picture rather than ploughing their own furrows

By PHIL WOOD Chamber President

ARTNERSHIP working is the key to the regeneration of North Staffordshire – and this Ready for Business publication is all about partnerships and showing a united front to potential investors from throughout the UK and overseas. Everyone needs to pull together if we are to attract the investment and new businesses to the area which will ensure economic growth and much-needed new jobs. Local authorities are working closely with the private sector and universities and colleges to help create the right environment for both new and existing businesses to flourish. Ready for Business highlights the myriad of exciting initiatives – many of which involve partnership working – that will make a significant difference to North Staffordshire’s chances of meeting the challenge of regenerating its economy and infrastructure. The city council has shown a lead with its Mandate for Change initiative which aims to make Stoke-on-Trent a great working city by

rolling out “the red carpet” to employers looking to bring jobs to the city. This is about the council responding to the express needs of business and removing obstacles when companies need quick decisions on matters such as planning decisions. Another welcome development is the launch of the Business Innovation Group which will see Keele University Science and Business Park and Keele University partnering with Staffordshire University and the North Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce to provide specialist and strategic advice. They will be working with Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership to deliver services to companies across several sectors including professional services, creative, medical, manufacturing, technology and

environment. It is encouraging to see such a spirit of co-operation and that people are looking at the bigger picture rather than ploughing their own furrows. Perhaps in the past communities in North Staffordshire have been guilty of being parochial – to the detriment of the whole. In order to compete with other leading cities in the UK we need to showcase all the many assets the area has to offer. Stoke-on-Trent city’s motto Vis Unita Fortior – united strength is strong – would be an apt rallying cry for North Staffordshire in 2012. As this brochure shows, combining the strengths of public sector organisations and private companies can create an irresistible force – and show that we really are Ready for Business.

Excellent location and transport links... and a whole lot more By SARA WILLIAMS Chamber Chief Executive S a recent arrival to working in North Staffordshire, there are a number of positives that have struck me. One is the prime position North Staffordshire occupies at the heart of the UK. Excellent links to the motorway and road networks mean that there is easy access both north/south and east/west. And with relatively easy reach of two major and expanding ports on either side of the country – Liverpool and Hull – North Staffordshire offers a superb place to reach all corners of the UK, and beyond into Europe and the United States. Not only that, but there are four major airports, Manchester, Birmingham, East Midlands and Liverpool, around one hour’s drive away. With such a good existing infrastructure, further investment would strengthen the offer to all business based here. Another important factor for the area is having an improved broadband infrastructure, especially as many local companies trade internationally. Broadband is fast and reliable in most of North Staffordshire but the Chamber will continue to lobby for further upgrades to make sure we have the best in UK. Faster broadband means faster data transfer, so crucial to our businesses. North Staffordshire is home to superb educational establishments and training

The two universities – Staffordshire and Keele – are vitally important to the business sector. They encourage entrepreneurship, support innovation, provide world-class expertise and are a tremendous hub of ideas to drive business growth. I should also like to mention The JCB Academy – an innovative £22 million school sponsored by global excavator giants JCB.

Nova Centre to play star role for business start ups F LEDGLING companies are queuing up to take advantage of an innovative new enterprise centre which will provide the support and expert help they need to achieve sustainable growth. The Nova Centre has been set up to help ambitious new businesses hone their competitive edge, link up with like-minded organisations and benefit from financial expertise. The venue, which is based in a converted former farmhouse at Keele University Science and Business Park (KUSBP), consists of 1,500 square feet of affordable and flexible office space, specifically for businesses that have been trading for 12 months or less. As well as benefiting from contemporary office facilities, businesses that locate to the Nova Centre will join a two-year growth programme including tailored advice on sales, marketing, HR, performance and strategy and opportunities to network. The project is on schedule to be completed by April and, already, a wide range of companies have expressed an interest in taking advantage of the specialist

support. Lucy Delaney, KUSBP Business Development Executive, said: “We have received lots of interest from a range of people involved in fledgling and new business ventures. “They range from university post-graduates and budding entrepreneurs to those with no previous ties to Keele but who have been attracted by the reputation and the prestige of the facilities. “We have eight units available from April and we are now taking applications. The selection process is extremely competitive because we want to ensure we pick the kind of companies that we believe have the potential to grow and help the North Staffordshire economy. “After two years they will move allowing new companies to move into the units and benefit from the support.”

 For further information contact Lucy Delaney on 01782 734603 or email lucy.delaney@kusbp.com Application forms can be found at www.kusbp.com

DISCUSSIONS are underway with anchor tenants for the new Central Business District which will bring thousands of white collar workers into Stoke-on-Trent City Centre. City council Chief Executive John van de Laarschot said interest shown in the development alongside the Potteries Way showed the private sector’s confidence in a city that is open for business. He said: “We are seeing a will to invest in the area and create much needed jobs. The white collar workers coming into the City Centre will create a new community to support the shops, the night-time economy and the cafe culture.”

Council’s can-do attitude will help attract new jobs MBITIOUS plans to make Stoke-on-Trent a great place to do business are paying off with interest from hundreds of potential investors and employers. The Mandate for Change initiative – a red carpet approach to attract investment and a pledge to nurture companies already based in the city – includes a new “can-do” council attitude which is encouraging expansion and employment. Jobs are the crux of the city’s drive to turn around a legacy of under-achievement and economic standstill – jobs that will breathe new life into its communities; jobs that will create a vibrant City Centre on a par with Manchester and Birmingham; jobs which will give the city’s young people – and its university graduates – a reason to stay. More than 120 businesses have so far contacted the city’s Investment Development Team on its dedicated hotline – 01782 234747 – and hopes are high that projects coming to fruition could create more than 1,000 new jobs. As well as creating new activity and investment, the city council will continue to support existing companies, including major success stories in the pottery industry, manufacturers like Goodwin International and rising stars like global online gaming giant bet365. John van de Laarschot, the city council Chief Executive who celebrated two years at the helm at the turn of the year, talks of a united, focused team across the whole county comprising councillors, MPs, public services and the private and voluntary sectors. John explained that internal reorganisation, cost-cutting and efficiency driving – including active intervention in some council services which were clearly not right – had created an environment for progress. Putting the customer at the heart of every process has seen significant improvements in areas like the maintenance of council homes and benefit payments. Now business is benefiting from new trains of thought applied to planning – so vital in driving business and encouraging investment, but so often a bureaucratic minefield. Add to that a wide range of services to enable investors to hit the ground running when moving to Stoke-on-Trent, and to support existing city employers, and it is clear to see why interested parties from ministers to major companies have their eyes on Stoke-on-Trent for all the right reasons. “It’s not a difficult thing to achieve,” said John. “We are just accelerating the planning process to support businesses and enable their expansion. ‘How can we make this work?’ is our starting position.”

A

He recalled a chance discussion at an event where one of the city’s major employers told him of an issue relating to derelict land which, if developed, would enable the business – a global player – to grow. Support from city planners helped make it happen. “We are really focused on creating jobs,” John explained. “So as well as making the city a great place to do business, we need to make it a great place to live. “It’s easy to say that but there are very positive elements that are already being delivered. “We have great facilities for young people including £250 million we are spending as part of the BSF programme to rebuild high schools, the £340million development of a shopping centre, bus station and public realm in the City Centre... all of this has a part to play. We are the 16th largest city in the UK with a retail offer that comes in at something like 63rd... that has to change if we are to stop shoppers going to Manchester or Birmingham and encourage people to shop in Stoke-on-Trent.” The city’s profile is being raised by big events like the Tour of Britain stage, community rock concerts and the massive impact of Stoke City’s Premier League status. A carefully put together budget for 2012-13 will see the council not only meeting Government spending restrictions, but also putting aside millions of pounds to invest in creating jobs. As John van de Laarschot is quick to point out, Stoke-on-Trent has changed, and will continue to change, with better infrastructure, buildings and jobs then ever before.

There is clear evidence that healthy workplaces are more productive and have lower levels of absenteeism. Our award schemes are designed to help you to achieve this by implementing smoking and mental health policies.

Breathe easy in the workplace The Breathe Easy Award is a step-by-step process which helps businesses to develop smokefree policies, demonstrate support to their local community and offer employees who wish to quit smoking help and support to do so. A great deal of research has shown that employees who smoke cost business a huge amount in terms of productivity, not to mention the obvious health risks to valuable employees. The award is a good opportunity for businesses to improve productivity, provide valuable health and wellbeing support for staff and improve their reputation as a responsible employer. There is no deadline as this is an ongoing process, and your organisation can achieve the award by successfully demonstrating a few key achievements such as:

■ Having a written smokefree policy for your site ■ Actively promoting local stop smoking services (or even allowing stop smoking advisers to come on site)

■ Having at least one member of staff trained to be a ‘Level 1’ stop smoking adviser

■ Display information on site around illicit and counterfeit tobacco sales (from HM Revenue and Customs)

■ Have an appointed contact to maintain relationship with local council

(half day free training from local NHS provider)

To find out more and to start working toward your award please contact your Breathe Easy Co-ordinator:

Government funding recognises impressive

track record S

TAFFORDSHIRE University’s impressive track record in helping businesses to flourish has been recognised with funding that will open up even more exciting opportunities for the area’s economy. The University has been awarded a Higher Education Innovation Funding (HEIF) grant of £4.8 million to make it an even more dynamic player in attracting inward investment, setting up new businesses and creating high grade job opportunities for graduates. With funding of £1.2 million a year until 2015, the university will intensify its already close partnership with the commercial sector to support start-up enterprises and established firms as well as pioneer new products and practices. “We won the HEIF grant on the strength of 10 years of success in delivering knowledge exchange and commercial activities in order to support enterprise, innovation and growth and make significant contributions to the local and regional economy,” said Sandra Booth, Director of Enterprise and Commercial Development for Staffordshire University, who led the bid. Now the HEIF funding boost will fund a number of ongoing programmes that between them will lead to 127 new graduate-led start up businesses which will create 250 new jobs over the next three years – and provide 300 more businesses with access to the University’s knowledge base, including consultancy, applied research and technology road mapping facilities. Most of the enterprises that stand to

benefit from this support are high growth businesses which depend on technology in order to innovate. In addition the University will be promoting 2,000 graduate jobs on its graduate talent pool website and inviting employers to advertise vacancies or internship opportunities. This will be particularly useful for companies relocating to the area – providing them with a ready supply of “home grown” skilled graduates and so retaining talent and expertise in local markets. The additional money means the University can widen its use of existing programmes, such as: ● Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) through which businesses can access the University’s academic knowledge, expertise, resources and facilities. ● Applied Research Centres (ARCs) which assist small and medium sized companies with real-world issues and commercial opportunities in areas as diverse as digital media, mobile computing, electronics, renewable energy, security and medical technologies. ● The creation of spin-out companies started by staff and students who in many cases continue to develop the enterprise after graduating. This encourages the retention of creative, intelligent young professionals in the Staffordshire region. The University can holds equity in seven spin-out companies and has assisted graduate start up companies since 2007 via its Business Villages with an impressive 82 per cent still trading.

“”

We are committed to the Local Enterprise Partnership’s strategic priorities to be a powerhouse for local economic regeneration through the creation of knowledge-based private sector jobs and growth SANDRA BOOTH, Director of Enterprise and Commercial Development, Staffordshire University

Some of the HEIF funding will also go towards the University’s SPEED (Student Placement in Enterprise Education) and EFS (Enterprise Fellowship Scheme) mentoring projects which have so far supported 163 new businesses, of which around 90 per cent have stayed in the region. Sandra Booth said: “The HEIF funding is great news for Staffordshire and an endorsement of the successful work we are doing with employers and the wider community. We are committed to the Local Enterprise Partnership’s strategic priorities to be a powerhouse for local economic regeneration through the creation of knowledge-based private sector jobs and growth. “Universities are central to economic growth and Staffordshire has a long and successful track record of working with businesses to raise their competitiveness and introduce new products and processes.”  For more information on how Staffordshire University can help businesses to develop please contact For Business, B184, Brindley Building, Leek Road Campus, Stoke-on-Trent, ST4 2DF.

Hub offers wealth of expertise on the environment

C

OMPANIES are tapping into a wealth of advice and expertise about environmental issues at a new hub aimed at encouraging green working practices and promoting energy efficiency. The Keele University Sustainability Hub is a state-of-the-art educational and meeting centre based at a refurbished former working farm on campus. The mixed-use venue includes a visitor centre, training rooms and exhibition areas and is also the base for several courses including the MSc in Environmental Sustainability and Green Technology. It is a centre than can be accessed by the community and also acts as a learning and research venue. Businesses and other organisations are also encouraged to use the facility for meetings, seminars and training courses, and to get involved with student development by offering work placements. Sustainability Hub Manager Dr Sharon George said: “The centre is open to everyone from students to members of the community and organisations are also taking advantage. “We host environmental business networks and look at issues such as energy efficiency

in the workplace and sustainable construction. “We are also forging close working relationships with companies and through them offer valuable industry-based work placements to the students and tap into the expertise of businesses for lectures and training purposes. “We see the role of the Hub as a catalyst which sparks activity and brings the community together to look at environmental and sustainability issues.”  For more details about events at the Hub log onto www.keele.ac.uk/keelehub ■ Sustainability Hub Manager Dr Sharon George with an energy efficient hot water storage tank which is on show at the Hub building.

Our vision of ‘the safest place to be’ AT the heart of our vision ‘to make Staffordshire the safest place to be’ is the community fire stations project. Our aim was not for fire stations just to be rebuilt into ‘shinier’ versions of existing stations but for them to become interactive hubs in the communities they serve. All the stations have been designed with community facilities and partnership areas and this is what makes these buildings much more than just fire stations. As well as the community rooms, the larger stations have, ‘break out’ areas and even gyms which can be used by supervised groups as well as firefighters. The community and operational areas are seamlessly integrated. Visitors are often seen making a beeline for the viewing platforms over the appliance bay when the alarms ring to alert crews of an incident. The facilities have been ‘future proofed’ with particular consideration given to the number of bays provided to account for movement and/or purchase of additional appliances in the future. The stations have also been designed to the highest environmental standards which include recycled rainwater water feeding sprinklers. This supports our commitment to sustainability and our drive towards the increased use of sprinkler systems in businesses and new homes. The use of the community facilities has already exceeded our expectations. The facilities are free to use for non-profit-making organisations and groups and bookings range from charities to small local clubs. Many of the groups have no obvious connection to the fire and rescue service.

However, they are about improving the lives of local people and working together as a community – all of which can ultimately assist us in keeping people safer. We also have service level agreements with partner organisations, such as Community First Responders and the Police, allowing them to hot desk in partnership areas at the stations. We are able to run a lot more of our own community sessions and events. Like never before, we can engage and educate the local people in a positive, interactive way. Our community fire stations are undoubtedly leading the way in the UK fire and rescue service – a fact acknowledged by Fire Minister Bob Neill MP who, on a visit to view the new facilities, said that we were ‘at the vanguard of leadership’. This investment is making a huge difference to our capacity to deliver improved safety and contribute to the well-being of our communities into the 21st Century and beyond. All of which takes us another step closer to our vision – making Staffordshire the safest place to be.

Building new stations is a boost for area’s regeneration T HE building of new multi-million pound fire stations with community facilities is making a significant contribution to the regeneration of North Staffordshire. State-of-the-art stations at Sandyford (£4.5 million), Hanley (£5.5 million), Burslem (£2.2 million), Newcastle-underLyme (£4.5 million), Kidsgrove (£2.9 million) and at Rising Brook, Stafford, (£1.3 million) have been constructed over the past two years. Now approval has been given for 11 more new multi-million pound facilities including community stations at Ashley, Stone, Longton and Leek – work on the project is expected to start in Autumn this year – as part of the latest wave of the Government’s Private Finance Initiative funding. Councillor Len Bloomer, Chairman of the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Authority, said: “The development of these modern buildings is a substantial financial investment in the area and has been creating construction jobs and work for suppliers. “There is also a feel-good factor in that people are seeing modern 21st Century structures replacing the old, out-dated buildings. All of this is making a significant contribution to the bigger picture of economic regeneration.” The community facilities in the new stations – designed to encourage engagement with local people – reflect changes in the fire and rescue service, which has become more proactive. Greater emphasis is now placed on prevention initiatives and making the public more aware of safety in the home and on the roads. Councillor Bloomer added: “We have a first-class ability to respond to emergencies but prevention is central to our overall strategy. Making these stations part of the community is an important step in raising public awareness and getting over our safety messages.” The new stations have very quickly

become community hubs with local organisations using the facilities and, conversely, firefighters becoming involved in community projects. A prime example of joint projects is at Sandyford Community Fire Station where firefighters have teamed up with local school children to tend garden allotments on the station site. Four schools – Haywood Engineering College and Goldenhill, Summerbank and St Joseph’s Catholic primaries – have joined forces with four different watches at the station to grow fruit and vegetables. Watch Manager Peter Hall, who is also Neighbourhood Co-ordinator, said when the pupils come to the station to look after the allotments they also learn about road safety and fire safety. He added: “We are also looking to tie in healthy cooking and cooking safety messages.” Several organisations and groups use the Sandyford station for meetings, open days have been staged and supervised groups use the station’s gym facilities.

The landscaped 70-acre development will play a major role in the regeneration of the area’s economy with the Park’s fifth Innovation Centre (IC5), a further 12 plots available for design-and-build opportunities, plus plans for a 150-bedroom mid-market hotel. IC5 builds on the phenomenal success of the Park’s four existing Innovation Centres that have bucked all recessionary trends by maintaining a 95 per cent occupancy rate, one of the highest retention rates in the Midlands. Financed through a £6 million investment by Staffordshire County Council and managed by KUSBP, it will offer 30,000 sq ft of Grade A office and workshop space which can be tailored to meet tenants’ specific requirements. The new three-storey complex will also incorporate features which will minimise its long-term impact on the environment by reducing energy consumption and enabling it to produce its own power and heating. IC5 has already got off to a flying start with around one third of the space being negotiated with a key anchor tenant who has grown significantly over the last two years. The 12 remaining plots total just over 37 acres and offer organisations the rare and exclusive opportunity to shape their own development at the Science and Business Park as part of a long-term lease, by designing and building their own innovation centre in this highly desirable location.

A

All KUSBP tenants have access to an impressive range of services, including facilities management and strategic business advice on topics such as funding, bid writing, human resources, marketing and public relations. Caroline Mairs, Head of KUSBP, said: “The site is a fantastic new development that will appeal to companies of all sizes. The whole investment has been designed to help the regeneration of North Staffordshire and create employment opportunities for local people by bringing new high-quality businesses to the area.”  For further information contact Caroline Mairs on 01782 734321, email info@kusbp.com or visit www.kusbp.com

Design students win high-end orders in global marketplace W INNING ceramic designs have helped Staffordshire University students and staff turn their campus-based business into a fully-fledged limited company with global orders and plans for expansion. Professor David Sanderson and his Ceramic Design MA students launched Flux Stoke-on-Trent in January 2011 with a £20,000 grant in Higher Education and Innovation Funding. Orders of more than £80,000 flooded in during the first year after two visits to the prestigious Maison et Objet trade fair in Paris and a UK showcase at the British Ceramics Biennial in Stoke. The firm sold 8,000 pieces of its high-end bone china with Longton-based manufacturer Duchess China contracted to use the designs of nine students, including two undergraduates, on blank ware. Products included cups and saucers,

plates, and other tableware. London-based distributor EDC takes care of the UK market for the firm with plans afoot for distribution across North America and an expansion of the range into hotel ware, bowls and chargers. Brand identity is key for Flux so students have to produce consistent colourways featuring cobalt blue with burnished gold or platinum accents. Students get a royalty payment for each of their items sold. Professor Sanderson, Creative Director for Flux, said: “One of the original ideas was to give students real life work experience but I’d also spotted a gap in the market. “Mass production and brand driven products elsewhere mean there is a market for quality bone china made in Stoke-on-Trent. “It’s coming full circle now. Those firms that were able to survive out-sourcing and the

down turn are now in a position to produce aspirational high value products. “We’ve exceeded our targets and orders are substantial so the Potteries is a fantastic place to be doing business. China for instance is looking to source quality bone china that is made in Stoke-on-Trent. The future is bright.”

Why graduate internships have many benefits... R

EGIONAL employers will be able to employ wage subsidised graduates through Staffordshire University’s graduate internship scheme, relaunched now that new funding is in place. Dr Mark Kent, Head of the Careers Centre, said: “The business case for graduate internships is clear. “As well as engaging skilled workers in key projects, employers can get to understand more about what graduates can do for them and can potentially ‘try before they buy’ for their recruitment needs. “In a tight economic environment, these are important benefits.

“In turn, graduates can gain valuable experience that develops their employability skills, raises their understanding of commercial environments, builds their business networks and strengthens the foundation for their future success.” Jonathan Willis, who graduated with a First in Software Engineering, was an intern at Stafford-based Blackroc Technology where he now has a job. He said: “I was thrown in the deep end and given a software and hardware challenge to solve for a major car manufacturer. “I adapted quickly and it’s led to more business for Blackroc and a job for me.”

Green energy projects to benefit businesses

R

ENEWABLE energy is at the forefront of two groundbreaking projects based at Staffordshire University, which are designed to support businesses in the renewables marketplace and influence policymakers. The first is managed by the Institute for Environment, Sustainability and Regeneration with the RESCO (Renewable

Energy Supply Chain Opportunities) programme focusing on helping firms in the West Midlands tap into low carbon and renewable energy markets. Running until 2014, the project specialises in technologies linked to power generation and transmission, wind and marine power as well as small scale renewable and biomass technologies. Small and medium sized firms are offered free market capability assessments as RESCO also stages conferences and networking events to help them make contacts. RESCO is working directly with The Crown Estate and developers on the next round of offshore wind power developments as well as Green Deal – a £1.5 billion pounds programme in the West Midlands to make homes more energy efficient. Business Director David Terry said: “Both these schemes represent massive business opportunities for firms across the area who are involved in manufacturing, operations and maintenance. We’re working closely with the market makers to ensure local companies can benefit.”

■ Quiet revolution: the RESCO project is helping companies take advantage of renewable energy like wind turbines.

The second programme is managed by Jon Fairburn of the Business School at Staffordshire University and involves four faculties. It is a European funded partnership of 12 organisations from nine countries which aims to help local and regional policymakers better understand renewable energy systems. The three-year RETS (Renewable Energies Transfer System) project runs until December 2012 and is collating information on renewable energy initiatives through a series of study visits and seminars. A 120-page compendium of best practice will be produced for local authorities to explain the benefits of initiatives like the use of geo-thermal energy to heat a nursing home and solar panels at a municipal swimming pool.

They have four fully licensed radiopharmaceutical production units (RPUs) which supply radiopharmaceuticals to PET imaging centres across the UK and Ireland. Following the success of their first RPU in Dublin, which has been operating since 2001, Keele University Science and Business Park was identified as a strategic, central location in the UK and the Keele RPU was commissioned in September 2005. It now routinely supplies radiopharmaceuticals to PET imaging centres in Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Preston, Sheffield, Hull, Birmingham, Leeds, Cheltenham and Oxford. As the business is built around the principles of quality and reliability, Erigal’s RPU facilities are all designed to optimise product quality, production capacity and reliability.

next to a university with strengths in Biomedicine, Chemistry, Physics and Pharmacy has provided Erigal with a constant flow of high calibre graduates and PhD level employees for its workforce. The company has employed five Keele graduates in the areas of production and quality control but all have now either received additional training or have been promoted within the company – one has even moved on to pursue a career in Medicine. Maxine Shaw, a PhD graduate in Chemistry from Keele University, is now undergoing Qualified Person Status training in order to be licensed to review and release pharmaceutical products for human and veterinary use. Two other Keele graduates are now undergoing specialist training to become cyclotron engineers and the first Keele graduate to be recruited, Dr Rob

Heathcote, has now been promoted to Operations Manager at the Keele site. Rob has been so impressed with the calibre of graduates from Keele University that he maintains an ongoing dialogue with academic departments there in order to identify talented graduates as they emerge. He said: “We have recruited very high calibre students from Keele University with experience in specialist areas relevant to our company. Keele graduates tend to have a higher level of hands-on experience with laboratory equipment and therefore tend to settle quickly in their roles at Erigal.”

As well as attracting support and investment from the Prince’s Regeneration Trust and securing £2.5million from the Regional Growth Fund (RGF), public and private sector organisations across the area are working together on an unprecedented drive to stake an even bigger claim on the national regeneration pot. The RGF money will pay for improvements on disused railway lines around the area and work on access and infrastructure to develop the Etruria Valley business park site; work to boost energy efficiency and the green agenda in the ceramics industry; a new factory extension for pottery manufacturer Steelite International and support for low carbon research and development by specialist automotive firm Zytech.

Business engagement ethos exemplified by collaborations

S

TRONG business relationships are a vital element of collaboration for Keele University, with local, national and international companies tapping into research and teaching expertise and also benefiting from access to students and graduates via internships and work placements. The University’s business engagement ethos is exemplified by the creation of an institutional lead, Jenny Tucker, who is the University’s Director of Commercial and Business Engagement. This is further strengthened by the development of the Science and Business Park (KUSBP) on campus, which is home to 50 organisations. Strong links and partnerships have been created here and a number of the businesses and KUSBP work with university researchers on collaborative projects. Keele has a strong track record on student employability and works hard to engage with employers across a range of activities, including seeking input from firms on course development as a mechanism to enhance the relevance of student learning. There is a growing focus on supporting graduates and undergraduates into internships and work experience.

Over the past 26 months, Keele has placed over 340 unemployed graduates into paid internships. The Graduate Internship Scheme is a new programme running until April 2014 with European Regional Development Fund backing, and involves employers offering paid placements lasting up to 12 months for 50 graduates a year. Other recently completed schemes, including Keele’s flagship Project Green, organised mainly environmental related internships for graduates from 30 different universities across the country.

A varied mix of enterprises at one prestigious address T HE first of Keele University Science and Business Park’s four Innovation Centres opened in 1999, and today they are home to over 40 companies attracted by the site’s excellent central UK location, tailored facilities and a prestigious address. With London less than two hours away and four international airports within an hour’s drive, KUSBP has attracted both global players and more local companies who have grown and prospered at Keele. The first two Innovation Centres accommodated a varied mix of enterprises, such as digital media design, executive recruitment, ICT providers and environmental specialists. The third and fourth centres, however, have focused on the medical sector, bringing exciting cutting edge research, development and light manufacturing activity to the Science and Business Park’s high specification laboratories. Location, prestige address,

support facilities and, in many cases, a ready supply of local expertise has attracted the likes of Siemens Windpower, who have made Keele their UK R&D HQ and vehicle tracking technology specialists Navman Wireless UK who have established their global HQ on the KUSBP.

Specialist The site can also boast local success stories like Biocomposites, a North Staffordshire medical company that occupied one floor in one of the Innovation Centres when it first diversified from ceramics into the medical field by producing specialist tissue regeneration products. The company now occupies two thirds of the Med IC4 building to cope with its continuing expansion and it has offices in the United States and China. As well as the Innovation Centres, KUSBP offers bespoke buildings to meet specific inward investment

commercial and manufacturing requirements for high-tech companies like Irish-based Erigal. The company set up a production unit for its radiopharmaceuticals at Keele – principally because from there they can supply the medical scanning equipment in major city hospitals within two hours reach. Erigal has also recruited five Keele University science and biomedical graduates. Rosi Monkman, KUSBP Business Support Manager, said: “There are currently around 650 people employed on the KUSBP. Occupancy rates have remained high at an average of 95 per cent in spite of the current difficult economic climate. “We have the advantage of being situated in the centre of the country with excellent transport links without the traffic congestion problems of nearby cities like Manchester and Birmingham. The Park has provided employment opportunities in North Staffordshire as well as retaining local graduates.” ■ The floodlit IC2 building at night creates a striking image.

Stoke-on-Trent gets energy fit in partnership with E.ON Sustainable Energy “Working in partnership with forward-thinking cities means we can make a real difference in reducing carbon emissions and energy costs while at the same time creating jobs and supporting community projects.”

An energy centre providing heat and power to a housing estate.

That’s the view of David Morgan, E.ON’s Head of Sustainable Cities, a new team which sits alongside public sector organisations across the country, including Stoke on Trent City Council, providing expert advice on energy projects that will put people in command of the energy they use.

Michael Woodhead, Managing Director of E.ON’s Sustainable Energy business, has said: “As a nation the UK is on the first rungs of a ladder in terms of its understanding, generation and use of sustainable energy – and we mustn’t lose momentum.

“Whether it’s through low carbon microgeneration technologies, consultancy services or large-scale distributed energy packages, we have a series of tailored and flexible packages to help clients achieve low carbon and energy use reduction targets in the way that’s most suitable to their organisation.”

E.ON Sustainable Energy is proud to partner with Stoke on Trent City Council to help Stoke-on-Trent become one of the UK’s first fully sustainable cities. It’s all about generating and delivering cheaper and more environmentally-friendly energy to the city’s businesses and local communities, explains David: “By working at city level we can make a real impact on providing cleaner and better energy; working with and in the community to help people become energy fit at home or in business, by moderating their energy use, insulating their properties and generating power using renewable technologies.”

GREEN VISION to give business energy security NNOVATIVE plans for Stoke-on-Trent to generate its own power would provide businesses with “energy security” and protect them from rising prices. The council has drawn up a masterplan to make the city carbon neutral and reduce its reliance on national gas and electricity supplies. It is envisaged the local authority would form joint ventures to tap into potential local sources which would provide cut-price heat and power. Coupled with an energy efficiency and retrofit campaign, the net result could be to make Stoke-on-Trent the greenest city in the UK. And the council may have been blessed with a natural resource to help them realise this aim – as the city is one of only three places in the country which have the

I

geological conditions to pump hot water from deep beneath the ground. “When it gets that hot you could convert the water to steam to power electricity generators,” said Jane Forshaw, the council’s Assistant Director of City Services. “Alternatively, it might be that water could be pumped around the city to heat buildings. “Preliminary investigations also indicate that below the workings of the former Chatterley Whitfield coal mine there are reserves of warm spring water which can be used for heating. “The Chatterley Whitfield pit link is a lovely irony – giving Stoke-on-Trent a carbon free legacy out of its fossil fuel history.” Other ideas in the council’s

ground-breaking green vision for Stoke-onTrent include: ■ Sharing surplus heat from big buildings and factories. For instance, heat and power that the Michelin tyre factory does not need could be used to power the Civic Centre or new developments on the former Spode site in Stoke. ■ Using tens of thousands of pounds worth of organic waste currently made into compost to make environmentallyfriendly biogas. ■ Further investments in renewable energy like solar panels. A massive array of photo voltaic panels have been installed on the Civic Centre, generating power for the building – income from which will pay for the project within 10 years. There are also plans to install solar panels on over 500 council homes, subject to the Government’s Feed in Tariff. ■ Using dried wood chippings from trees which fall down, have to be cut down or may even be specially grown, to heat and power care homes, libraries, museums and sports centres. Councillor Janine Bridges, whose potfolio includes energy security and sustainability added: “We hope our green vision will help existing businesses to reduce their bottom line and be more energy efficient and encourage potential investors to locate their businesses in Stoke-on-Trent, as we plan to offer reduced price heat and power.”

■ Pottery decanters entering a kiln at Wade Ceramics’ new state-of-the-art factory at Etruria.

Ceramic resurgence boosted by

world class heritage TOKE-ON-TRENT’S heritage as a world class centre for pottery production is helping drive a resurgence in the city’s ceramics industry. Besides the area having a large skilled workforce steeped in pottery tradition, companies are being helped by the fact that a backstamp of “Made in Stoke-on-Trent” is still seen around the globe as a mark of quality. Coupled with tens of millions of pounds of investment in state-of-the-art production technology and a wealth of innovative and creative designers, the revival is gathering pace. A prime example of the turnaround is the success of tableware manufacturers Steelite

S

International who announced record sales of £60 million for 2010. Production at its Burslem factory – one of the most modern and efficient in the world – increased by 24 per cent during that year to meet growing UK and overseas demand. Steelite produces award-winning tabletop ranges for the international hospitality industry with sales in more than 120 countries. Its business spans a number of sectors including commercial catering – from staff restaurants and retirement homes to contract caterers and cruise lines – and the leisure and hospitality market including restaurants, casinos and hotels. Now the company is expanding its

production capacity with the help of a grant of around £2 million from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund (RGF). The expansion is expected to create more than 200 new jobs to add to the 650-strong workforce. At the same time the RGF made an award of approximately £2 million to Penkhull-based research specialists Ceram to development new kiln-firing technology which could cut energy costs by 25 per cent – and help the local pottery industry to compete even more effectively in global markets. The famous Wade Ceramics company, which was founded in 1810, celebrated its bicentennial by moving into a brand new

£7.5 million factory with the very latest robotic manufacturing equipment. A mix of excellence of design and new technology has helped Wade become the world leader in the niche market of pottery decanter production for the Scottish whisky industry. At its factory at Festival Park, Etruria, Wade produces more than 50,000 decanters a week – most of which of are exported to China and the Far East. Meanwhile, the Royal Family’s wellchronicled admiration for Stoke-on-Trent ceramics has been highlighted again by a £7.5 million investment in Middleport Pottery by Prince Charles’ charity, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust.

The Trust’s money has been used to acquire the Grade II* listed factory building and to secure the manufacturing future of its current occupiers, Burgess, Dorling and Leigh – makers of the famous blue and white Burleigh ware. Restoration and expansion of the factory – the last working steam-powered Victorian pottery in the UK – starts this year, paving the way for the development of a visitor centre with the aim of attracting 30,000 visitors a year within the next five years. It is envisaged the scheme could create 100 jobs. Prince Charles made an high-profile visit to Middleport Pottery where he met many of the 40-strong workforce – and gave the royal seal of approval to its products,

announcing that Burleigh was still “incredibly popular around the world”. Councillor Mark Meredith, the city council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said: “There is no doubt that British ceramic manufacturing is in a state of revival and we are witnessing many notable success stories locally. “As well as big-name companies enjoying a resurgence, new businesses are coming in and new artists and designers are coming out of universities and basing their businesses in the city. “We are even seeing production that has been outsourced overseas being brought back to the world capital of ceramics – our great city of Stoke-on-Trent.”

For instance, eg Solutions, back office software designers for large financial institutions, are expanding in South Africa where they have set up a separate company. Scientific and Technical Gases have made great business inroads in South America and KMF, precision sheet metal manufacturers, has also boosted export orders. The Chamber holds the United Kingdom Trade & Investment contract to support all businesses – not just members – throughout the whole of Staffordshire, helping local firms access schemes like Passport to Export and Gateway to Global Growth. In addition, this outstanding overseas work was recognised when the Chamber secured the British Chambers of Commerce’s coveted 2011 UK award for Excellence in International Trade Services. Helen Foxley, the Chamber’s Director of International Trade, said: “We are working with a growing number of enterprises who appreciate that they need to sell their products and services overseas if they are to grow – especially at a time when the UK economy has created a challenging trading climate in home markets. “The Prime Minister underlined this recently when he said that we must trade our way to growth and jobs and show real aggression about pursuing Britain’s interest in the world – we need more companies to get out of their comfort zones and get selling to the world.”

Companies reap the rewards of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships WARD-WINNING Knowledge Transfer Partnerships involving Staffordshire University continue to benefit businesses across the region. Funded by the Technology Strategy Board along with other government funding organisations, the scheme brings together a company, academic team and a high calibre graduate called an Associate to work on a project. Susan Semple, Business Development Manager, said: “We have a proven track record of providing expertise to successfully support over 70 businesses to develop and grow. “Latest information shows that, on average, the business benefits that can be expected from KTP are an increase of over £283,000 in annual profits before tax, the creation of three genuine new jobs in addition to the Associate and the training of an additional 30 staff.” One successful partnership between Staffordshire University and Scientific and Chemical Supplies Ltd scooped an award for Innovation Achieved at the Lord Stafford Awards. The company, which supplies science education equipment and resources around the UK, called in the university to help it develop a fun forensic investigations kit for schools. More than 1,100 kits have now been sold with a resulting increase in profits from the new product of 80 per cent. Tim Avery, the Education Sales Director at SciChem, said: “The Knowledge Transfer Partnership has enabled Scientific and Chemical to move in different directions.” Awards patron Lord Stafford said: “SciChem has been trading for more than 50 years but this link up with the renowned Department of Forensic Science at Staffordshire University has seen them move into an entirely new area. “This innovative project is not only helping the company but is also improving the image of science as a subject among youngsters.”

Exciting construction projects to help regenerate city’s economy new raft of multi-million pound flagship developments are set to transform the landscape of Stoke-on-Trent – and help to regenerate the city’s economy. Leading the way is the £350 million redevelopment of the East West Precinct, which will provide the City Centre with one of the UK’s most modern retail and leisure complexes. Developed by Birmingham-based Realis Estates and to be called City Sentral, the scheme comprises around 70 stores – including a new M&S – a Vue cinema complex, 11 food and drink units, an 80-bedroom hotel and parking for more

A

than 1,000 cars. A new state-of-the-art bus station nearby will be complete by Autumn this year and that will clear the way for the demolition of the precinct and the old 1960s concrete bus station. Across the other side of the City Centre, the Potteries Shopping Centre owners have revealed plans for an extension called The Avenue which includes an eight to 10 screen digital cinema, six quality restaurants, an attractive pedestrianised area and additional car parking. Preliminary work has also started on the new Central Business District in the City Centre – a 10-year, 1.2 million sq ft project, headed by developers Genr8, which will

include offices, retail, apartments, restaurants, bars, leisure facilities and a public square. It is envisaged over the next decade that the scheme, located on the site of the former Unity House office block, will create 4,000 jobs. In Longton a hi-tech training hub in a former pottery factory opened its doors to the first students earlier this year. Around 300 students have enrolled at the Centre of Refurbishment Excellence (CoRE) at the former Ensor Works.

multi-skilled tradespeople ready to go straight into work with the skills employers require. Education infrastructure in Stoke-on-Trent is also being transformed by the ongoing Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme which includes 10 new-build secondary and special school schemes. With another nine schools to be extended or refurbished, plus new ICT facilities in all the schools, the total spend will be around £250 million. Latest estimates are that more than £100 million of the work will go to local companies and contractors which is helping to create and safeguard jobs.

Meanwhile, construction of Staffordshire University’s £30 million cutting-edge Science and Technology Centre in Stoke is progressing well. As a vibrant part of the city’s University Quarter, the new centre – due to open in Autumn this year – will have a huge impact in equipping local people with the skills needed for the area’s science-based industries. The NHS in Stoke-on-Trent has also seen the biggest ever investment in care with the building of a new £400 million super hospital at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire. Also, three new health centres have been built at Cobridge, Meir and Tunstall at a total cost £29.5 million.

In addition, the construction of four new multi-million pound fire stations with community facilities at Sandyford, Hanley, Burslem and Longton is making a significant contribution to regeneration in the city. City Council Leader Mohammed Pervez said: “The many exciting construction projects and developments are helping to create a feeling of confidence that the city is making sound progress. “There is still much to do but we are building solid foundations for economic regeneration and the creation of new jobs. Companies and investors can look at what is happening to the city and they can see the great potential for the future.”

Premier and Europa League status is boon for the city TOKE City Football Club’s Premier League status and Europa League adventure is shining a global spotlight on the city and is encouraging inward investment. The top-flight football club has breathed new life and optimism into the area just like its chairman Peter Coates hoped when he said: “Stoke City Football Club’s Premier League status means billions of people around the world tune in every week to watch our great city on the television. It has also generated a significant amount of income for the area. “We are all delighted that Stoke City has played its own part in the area’s ongoing regeneration. Stoke-on-Trent is a great city. We’ve got so much to offer and I hope will continue to be a catalyst to really get it on the move.” Professor Ellis Cashmore, who is Professor of Culture, Media and Sport at Staffordshire University, echoes his thoughts. He said: “Any city will benefit from having a Premier League club in its environs. “There is clear prestige from having a club within the city boundaries in the most glamorous, successful and affluent sports league in the world. The global exposure of having your club, brand and civic culture relayed around the world via television is sure to advance inward investment and business initiatives. “The impetus the city has from having a Premier League club is a clear and tangible benefit to businesses not just in the city but throughout the whole of North Staffordshire.”

Major employers such as Alstom and Perkins Engineering have demonstrated their confidence by announcing expansion plans, while high street names are queuing up to be part of new shopping and leisure developments. Stafford Chamber President Jonathan Andrew said: “It is quite clear, from the kind of activity and investment, that Stafford is not only holding its own but bucking the national trend when it comes to employment opportunities. “For example, Alstom is forging ahead with the creation of a new research centre while Perkins Engineering is expanding its operations – two projects which will create hundreds of new jobs. “MoD Stafford is looking to station a garrison at Beaconside – bringing with it beneficial spin offs for the town, while Stafford Technology Park continues to attract new companies. “There are also exciting development plans in the pipeline including Beacon Business Park, which is a major expansion of land adjacent to Stafford Technology Park, and massive retail developments in the town, which are attracting big names such as Marks & Spencer and Morrisons. “Add to this the world class centre of learning at Staffordshire University and the opportunities created by Stafford College and we have all the pieces of a jigsaw that complement one another very well.” Jonathan added: “It is evident that there is a clear willingness on the part of businesses to invest in Stafford at the moment, and that will position us very well when there is an upturn in national and global fortunes.”
