About the business

Soaring for new heights, Intebloc spotted a gap in the crane and lifting market and is set to increase current productivity from 25% to 30%, maximising the industry’s output.

Drawing upon his own experience in the oil and gas offshore environment, Ross Mcleod, Director at Intebloc, believes innovation is the driving factor to the company’s success and hopes his technological advancements will improve safety in the industry.

“Our primary focus at Intebloc is on hybrid systems, which connect wireless and cable-based solutions together. Many companies focus on one or the other, but our products can be adopted to suit various industries including construction and military.”

We have been extremely impressed with the comprehensive support from our adviser, Bill Hogarty.

How Business Gateway has helped

Intebloc tapped into Business Gateway for support in implementing a strategic growth and product development plan, and Ross believes it was a key move towards helping to him identify the key business areas to focus on.

“Bill has certainly helped to accelerate our business by connecting us to the right people whilst offering highly credible advice. His own experience in the energy sector is second to none and was instrumental when discussing the potential of our technology developments.”

“Our aim is for our products to save the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS) more than £60,000,000 per annum. In January 2019, we initiated field trials with two products and had another product enter field trials in February. We truly believe the free and comprehensive support we received from the Business Gateway team helped make this happen.”
