MGP helps orders roll in at fabricator

Within an hour of putting its first post on social media, a start-up engineering business from North Yorkshire has been bombarded with orders from around the world – all thanks to help provided by the Manufacturing Growth Programme (MGP). Topcliffe-based K2 Design & Fabrication Ltd, which makes specialist car parts, set up a Facebook page and secured 80 orders from as far afield as Australia and Singapore within 60 minutes of its initial post.
The company, founded by friends Duncan Oakes and Dominic King in January 2017, continues to be swamped with enquiries and is already taking £25,000 per month in orders after it received specialist advice from a marketing expert funded by MGP. K2 has now taken on an extra member of staff to cope with demand and is looking at employing another person because of its strong future order book.
