This project would not have got off the ground without the help of RfM. Not only did Tony find the funding, he developed our plans to enable the project to become real. Tony is incredibly hands-on and made sure the application proceeded smoothly despite the usual planning delays.

RfM has provided invaluable support and advice to help us plan and prepare for this phase of significant change for the business. Tony is very well connected and has put us in touch with all the right people to help make the project happen. Tony adjusts his way of working to fit the size and nature of the business; I've found him to be really proactive and very hands on. Nothing seems to faze him! It's been a positive experience and we hope to carry on working with Tony through to the completion of the project.

RfM were instrumental in helping us to secure R&D tax credits from the government. These are tremendously beneficial to a business like ours as they allow us to offset the costs involved in the R&D process – including the materials and the labour – and also receive a bonus on top.
