"The fourteen days you’ve done for us over the last seven months have gone very well: we’re working for a whole new set of well-targeted contractors on a wide range of steelwork and architectural metalwork jobs.
We're very busy but it’s good work and the future is good. We’re going into 2017 with over £300,000 of new business tied up and that gives us real confidence to expand our business in due course."
Managing Director, M&H Steel Fabrication Ltd
"CMS have certainly helped us to expand our company. David has helped us to focus on our target market and to bring tenders in which are completely relevant to our current capabilities and specialities.
This in turn has enabled us to win projects that are much larger than we would have hoped 5 years ago and has driven an increase in turnover as a result. We would have no hesitation in recommending the services of David Crick and CMS."
Partner, David Rose Construction
"When we first met we jokingly said that if you got a tender in within the first two weeks we would buy you Champagne! Well, considering you did achieve that with the Lewisham tender [£1.1m 12-flats conversion] please see the attached photo of your reward waiting for you in the office when you're next in!"
Operations Director, Decorean Ltd
"It is with great pleasure I write this letter of recommendation for Julian of CMS who has been working with us as a Business Development Manager for the last 2 years.
I can state with confidence that Julian is a motivated and responsible person with a high degree of integrity who managed to increase our turnover substantially in the time he worked with us.
We would be more than happy to reemploy him should the need arise."
Financial Director, Roma Marble
"Danny did exactly as he promised and he did it in a perfect way. Now we have plenty of contracts. Your services were exactly what we needed."
Director, Doublefit Ltd
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at CMS for their support and help over the last number of months and in particular Guy for his excellent work at generating additional leads and contacts for our business."
Director, SM Utility Services Ltd
"We have been working closely with CMS for a few years now and have found them to be extremely professional. Their understanding of our business has resulted in an increase in our turnover and we would not hesitate to recommend them."
Managing Director, SCM Ltd
"As a small business we really appreciated the time CMS took to understand our expectations, limitations and strategies before they put together a marketing plan for us. The pitch they developed is strong and easy to follow.
David and Stuart struck just the right balance of being both a support and a guide throughout. We are excited to be working with them."
Managing Director, William Gaze Ltd
"David Crick’s experience and professional knowledge of the construction industry has turned our business round. We have improved the size of our projects, improved the quality of the projects and more than doubled our turnover. These results speak for themselves."
Managing Director, Broadway Construction
"As a business trying to grow, CMS have been very valuable to us for introductions to new clients and getting tenders to come through. This gives us time to do what we do best. In the past our marketing had little result because we didn't have the time to follow things through.
We're not large enough to justify a full-time business development manager, so using CMS on a part-time basis has worked very well"
Managing Director, Unity Electrical Ltd
"Within three weeks of beginning to work with CMS we began to see new tenders for various projects from multiple companies. Once we received one tender, then the same companies would then send us multiple tenders, some as many as two/three a week and these were coming from many different companies.
I am still finding it hard to believe how many new companies are sending us tender documents for pricing.
Using CMS is probably the best thing I have ever done to expand my business."
Managing Director, JCD Electrical
"We have marketed ourselves in many different media but none has proved as successful as telesales made by David Crick. We have quoted in excess of £5million of new business directly as a result, exceeding the value of quote work arising from all other marketing opportunities combined."
UK Managing Director, Thomann-Hanry
"David Crick really turned our business round with his professional, persistent and productive marketing work just two days a month. His skill in nurturing long-term prospects right through to tender stage and beyond have proved invaluable to our business. We would strongly recommend the services of David and his team."
Senior Construction Manager, Elmcroft Industrial Construction
“David has an ability to ‘sniff out’ interesting opportunities whilst always projecting a professional and courteous approach.”
Business Development Manager, Dean & Dyball Construction
"The work of CMS has led to some 25-35 meetings (with senior banking directors and decision makers) every year. An excellent way to begin relationship development."
Director, Itemplus Consulting
