Our new office is but a stones throw from our old place, here in the heart of gods own county, Barnsley.
The birthplace of notable luminary including ’Dickie’ Bird, Arthur Scargill and of course Michael Parkinson, Barnsley is shaking off its industrial reputation and coal mining past and embracing the challenges of the future.
Tasked with transforming the town, Barnsley Development Agency (BDA) hope to deliver and assist existing and new businesses. Their website proudly proclaims “Barnsley is fast becoming one of the most talked about towns in the North of England. Business confidence and interest in the Borough has never been so high so there’s never been a better time to relocate to or expand in Barnsley”
The BDA have offered BHL support and guidance. Here is an article that they recently wrote about us;
A Barnsley-based supplier of heating products has been making waves in distant parts of the world, thanks to their investment in a new website, and the assistance of Enterprising Barnsley. Closer to home, their products can be found in Royal houses and stately homes.
BHL- located in Barnsley since their establishment in 1968 – has put significant investment into the redesign of its website in an attempt to enter markets previously untapped. The company sells a wide range of heating products from boilers to towel warmers, and having achieved significant sales both nationally and internationally via their previous website, further investment in online technology seemed the natural next step.
“Although we’re only a small company, we have been able to reach markets far beyond where we could have imagined just a few years ago” exclaimed Neil Bumford, of BHL. “The support Enterprising Barnsley has provided to the company has certainly added value to the business. I’d certainly recommend contacting them to anyone else who needs business support.”
Shaun Higginbottom of BDA commented “an increasing number of Barnsley businesses are now benefitting from the comprehensive, free support and advice available through Enterprising Barnsley. We are delighted with BHL’s success and look forward to continuing to work with the company in the future”.
The new website, www.bhl.co.uk, was six months in design and is now capable of holding over 1 million products, is user friendly, easy to navigate and offers significantly improved download times. Since its launch, the site receives over 1.5 million visitors annually, and has resulted in orders from as far away as Dubai and California. This development is just part of the growing online presence of BHL, who sees the future of electronic trading to be strong.
