Rochdale – In the business of success: September

The days are getting shorter and nights are getting colder, but staying consistent is business success in Rochdale throughout the month of September. We’ve seen award-winning companies, cosmic alliances and had some disruptive digital news.

So, whether you’re a born and bred lover of the region or you’re considering starting up a new business and expanding within Rochdale, this is the perfect read to highlight why Rochdale is worth investing in.


Congratulations are in order

Lancashire Farm Dairies ended their successful summer on a high after bagging themselves nine awards and two commendations in the dairy category at the Great Yorkshire Show. The brand recently hired specialists to provide a luscious new brand makeover, and with a whole new look the Rochdale-based company are flourishing!

So, with a fantastic summer of sales, a whole new look, and nine Great Yorkshire Show Awards under their belt, the Rochdale-rooted company is soaring, setting a precedent for local business.

However, not ones to be left behind, we have more award winners in our region this month as Andrew Kelly & Associates bagged themselves The British Property Award for lettings in Rochdale!

The team “performed outstandingly throughout the extensive judging period, which focused on customer service levels” and now Andrew Kelly has subsequently been shortlisted for a number of national awards, the results for which will be announced next year!

Hard work really does pay off.


Mingling with the stars

Middleton based brewery JW Lees has teamed up with none other than Celebrity Physicist and Astronomer, Professor Brian Cox, to launch their new amber ale, Cosmic Brew.

The local brewery has been established in Middleton since 1828 and really wanted to push the boundaries with their latest launch so picked a shining star to help them out. Professor Cox heavily endorsed the locally-brewed beer and is now a bit of an advocate!

A key example of a local business doing incredible work, the brewery owns and operates 140 pubs, mainly in North West England and North Wales.

We wish them the best of luck with their latest concoction and we can’t wait to have a taste!


Connectivity is key

September witnessed plans being put into motion for a new national broadband wayleave agreement, aiming to connect all areas of Greater Manchester, Rochdale included, with superfast broadband connection. The purpose of this is to help close the digital divide and ensure an exceptional online infrastructure for all businesses throughout the region – this will help Rochdale remain relevant and forward-focused in a competitive professional environment.
