Promotional Product Manufacturer Uses Grant to Benefit Customers and the Environment

As one of the fastest growing promotional product manufacturers in the country, Embello came into existence with the clear intention to be the most trusted promotional partner in the UK.

With thousands of products available from business cards and brochures, personalised mugs and custom pens to vehicle graphics and branded workwear – they’re proud to have printed, embroidered or engraved over 1 million items at their Midlands-based manufacturing facility.

But beyond just selling branded products, their purpose is to create a culture of change that pushes their team members to do things better every day. Better for customers, for the environment and for the people at #TeamEmbello. This unique culture has proven its worth as Embello have consistently been rated ‘Excellent’ across independent third-party review sites, as well as Google, Facebook and more.

As they plan for the future, they maintain a strong belief that the way people treat and view the environment impacts heavily on the way we live and work. Hence, utilising the Skills Hub has allowed Embello to implement a strategy to source and offer products that meet the needs of their customers and the planet. These eco-friendly changes will benefit the business, and the wider community, for years to come.

The funding provided by Tamworth Borough Council has also led to significant improvements within the manufacturing team. Focusing on productivity and efficiency, super-fast 24 hour turnaround times are now possible, allowing the company to rapidly grow in today’s always-on culture.

Embello Director Kyle Raffo shared his thoughts on the assistance provided by the Skills Hub: “Requesting a grant through the Skills Hub is a simple, straightforward application process in which support is provided throughout. Professional, high-quality training was gained as part of the Skills Hub funding. There has been a significant impact on the business which has seen a sharp rise in productivity, and further new business has been gained due to being more environmentally friendly. Without the grant funding, the training provided would not have been accessible to the company. I have, and continue to, recommend the service without question.”
