Family-run construction firm, Dasco Construction, has been announced at headline sponsors for this year’s Leigh Business Expo.
Now in its seventh year, the free expo offers businesses from Leigh and across the whole of the northwest, the opportunity to build local relationships and connections to grow their network and the local economy.
Dasco Construction, who are based in Ince-In-Makerfield, won Family Business of the Year at Wigan Business Awards organised by the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce last year and are passionate about supporting the business community.
Scott Rothwell, business commercial director, said: “Our mission is a simple and straightforward one, to build a renowned and reliable construction company, that strives to be the best at what we do, whilst retaining our integrity with customer satisfaction remaining solely at the forefront of our business.
“We employ 65 Wiganers and supporting events like Leigh Expo enables us to further invest in our community and help strengthen the local economy.
“We understand the importance the right people play when building a business, it’s not always what you know but who you know and as a family team, having local connections has definitely contributed to our success.”
Leigh Expo takes place on Wednesday, May 13, at Leigh Leisure Centre and is run by Jo Leigh and Nichola Howard from Launch Events NW, who are specialists in helping businesses find new customers through events and creative media.
Managing director, Nichola, who is also Wigan Vice President of the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, added: “Businesses benefit first-hand by building new relationships, fact. And like anything that is built to last, foundations are key, and no one understands that better than Dasco, so we are delighted to secure them as the main sponsor.
“Leigh Expo was created to provide businesses opportunities to connect with new and existing customers and keep the supply chain local. Expos are the perfect platform to help your business raise its brand awareness locally and market your products and services to an already engaged audience.”
The expo is open to visitors between 9.30am and 3pm and is free to attend. Exhibitor stands and Huddle host slots are now available to book. For more information, visit the Launch Events NW website.
