Innovair triumphs over COVID-19 challenges

An Aberdeenshire company, specialising in the development and operation of robotic systems, is set for growth after securing £135,000 following Business Gateway support.

About the business

Innovair, which develops state-of-the-art survey and inspection technology to help companies across many industries overcome challenges in difficult working environments, was experiencing considerable growth until the pandemic struck.

Business Gateway was excellent at keeping us updated with the latest developments so that we were aware of what support was being announced and what would work best for our business needs.

How Business Gateway has helped

Business Gateway has supported Innovair both before COVID-19 and through lockdown. Before the pandemic, Business Gateway worked with the team to provide a strategic business review and advice on company regulations, marketing, financial restructuring and exporting abroad. The organisation was also assisting the firm with its plans to take on larger premises to accommodate future growth when lockdown was introduced.

Stuart Lawson, Solutions Director at Innovair said, “The financial support has been a lifeline, as most of our work has been on hold since lockdown. It was worrying as the initial advice around funding and loans was not applicable to our industry and business, but despite this, Business Gateway was excellent at keeping us updated with the latest developments so that we were aware of what support was being announced and what would work best for our business needs.
