£30,000 Bridging the Gap Recipient - September 2015
The Recycled Assets Company (TRACO) is an innovative Hampshire based social enterprise that prides itself on providing organisations of all sizes with ethical office moves, smart storage and clearance services.
The company requested funding to support the refurbishment of a retail outlet and purchase of an electric delivery van.
Jason Bentley, Founder of TRACO, said:
Our funding from Solent LEP has helped us in multiple ways to grow our business. Firstly, it allowed us to purchase a larger vehicle meaning we could complete jobs in less trips therefore saving on time and mileage. This has meant that we are able to recycle more and increase the benefit to the environment. Next it has helped with our digital marketing efforts and improving our online presence. Finally, the funding has helped with sustaining and increasing our current workforce due to the increase in jobs brought about in part due to the increase in marketing. We would like to thank Solent LEP as without them this growth would not have been possible.
