“GPT Environmental are a pollution control company based in Pyle, near Bridgend. We specialise in several areas which works are often tendered for such as hazardous waste removal and remediation works.

“GPT Environmental had been registered on Sell2Wales for the past few years but until there was a change in personnel it was being underutilised. When two graduates were taken on (one in sales and one in marketing) Sell2Wales was identified as a tool which could be used more effectively.

“Originally the changes came with updating our profile on Sell2Wales which meant the email notifications we were receiving were far more targeted and relevant to us.

Originally we took too much of a “gung ho” attitude and bid for some contracts which were not a realistic prospect. To assist us in tender writing we attended a “How to Tender” event provided by the Supplier Development Service which gave us extremely valuable hints and tips in successful tendering.

“Since then we have been more selective in the contracts we have bid for and following a successful tender GPT Environmental is included on the current Welsh Purchasing Consortium (WPC) Framework for Highways Materials and Traffic Management Products. This Framework is in its early stages but it promises to be very fruitful over the course of the contract.

“For other SME’s I would suggest signing up to Sell2Wales and making the most of the free events and free support they provide. I would warn them that by simply signing up to Sell2Wales you are not going to receive perfect opportunities straight away. After signing up you must be proactive in using Sell2Wales to find business and searching award notices for sub-contractor opportunities is an excellent way of doing this.”
