Urban Street Furniture.
Logic Street Scene is one of the many West Coast businesses who have benefited from New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) management capability development vouchers through DWC.
The Westport-based family business specialises in the design, manufacture and installation of high-quality Urban Street Furniture, specialising in bespoke and custom projects.
Logic Street Scene’s urban furniture is popping up in public spaces across the Coast and New Zealand - from unique parklets in Dunedin, a 65-metre curved timber bench at Jellie Park in Christchurch to bespoke park benches in Auckland.
One of the keys to Logic Street Scene’s success, in addition to their innovative products, has been their willingness to invest in their staff. Over the years, Logic Street Scene has utilised the Regional Business Partner (RBP) network through DWC to help build capabilities within their organisation.
Most recently they received a NZTE capability development voucher to help put one of their staff members through a 12-month advanced business management programme delivered by the Universal Business Team.
DWC business development manager Fiona Hill looks after the RBP programme for the West Coast.
“As a Regional Partner, DWC offers an assessment service to help prioritise the training and development needs of business owners, managers and key personnel,” she says.
“If you have aspirations to grow your business, you may be eligible for an NZTE capability development voucher.”
These vouchers can co-fund up to 50% of the cost of management training offered by registered providers, for up to a maximum of $5,000 per year per business.
Logic Street Scene’s managing director George Field says many people are unaware of the business support services available on the West Coast.
“We highly recommend other Coast businesses tap into the many forms of assistance available through DWC. Fiona has been excellent to work with, providing us with access to resources to assist our growth and innovation,” says George.
