Newcastle Based Blue Clarity Design Services Elevates International Profile

Aug 27, 2015


Blue Clarity is experiencing rapid export growth following investment in market development activities supported by Invest Northern Ireland.

The Newcastle based company has doubled its workforce within the past twelve months to deliver contracts secured with international companies including providing outsourced design services to Canada’s largest home builder and one of America’s largest home builder.

Blue Clarity, established in January 2014, offers a bespoke CAD, survey and design package solution for the Energy, Utilities and Construction sectors. Speaking about the company’s success, Darren Fenton, Co. Director of Blue Clarity said: 

“Our first year trading was very successful, exceeding our turnover, export sales and employment targets. Invest NI’s support has enabled us to accelerate our growth plans and over the past few months we have focused on marketing activities to promote our services particularly within the Great Britain, Republic of lreland and Canadian and North American markets.”

The company has benefited from £20,000 of assistance from Invest NI towards market development and to support the recruitment of a business development manager and five new technicians.

“Increasing our workforce was a key investment for us along with developing our website, attending trade shows and undertaking market visits,” added Darren.

“We now have the resources in place to meet the expected increase in business and aim to broaden our scope of services and capitalise on the contacts we’ve made to secure new contracts.”

Blue Clarity now employs 18 people.

Mark Bleakney, Invest NI’s Southern Regional Manager, said: “Blue Clarity has made terrific progress to date driving sales outside Northern Ireland and is on a promising growth trajectory. Our support is enabling this recently established business to develop new export market opportunities and create valuable employment which will contribute £130,000 per year in additional salaries to the local economy.”
