With Autumn rolling in and Covid restrictions increasing, it can seem like a gloomy time for business in Greater Manchester. Times are tough, but the business community of Greater Manchester has shown a huge amount of resolve, resilience, and innovation over the last few months, and at the Chamber we believe that this mindset is here to stay.
A testament to this is that we have welcomed four new businesses to Chamber Membership this month. We look forward to encouraging our new members, and old, to continue to be part of what makes Greater Manchester great and contribute to the wider business community and city region. Learn more about our new members below.
EvolveODM has been in business since 2005 and is based in Skelmersdale.

Evolve ODM provide these services across 10 countries and operate 24/7 with a fully manned team of support engineers from our office in Skelmersdale.
On joining the Chamber Lee Bennett, International Account Manager, said
‘We are joining the Chamber to help us build business relationships in Manchester and to attend networking events to further understand areas that can benefit our business just as much as us helping other businesses in the area. In addition to this the sessions hosted by the Chamber will only help our business gain knowledge and move forward.’
‘If we can help with our services then that would be good place to start! In addition to these services, our leadership team have a wealth of experience across different sectors and with us operating in 10 countries we can assist any business that is looking to start international trading to share our experiences of what has worked well for us and what hasn’t.’
