Gas Tag has been highlighted as one of the star businesses within the Liverpool City Region by the Liverpool Enterprise Partnership and Local Growth Hub.

The Growth Hub coordinates and simplifies business support available across the City Region, joining up national, local, public and private support and creates a seamless customer experience for businesses.

Janice Mears, head of business growth at Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), said: "Gas Tag is a real success story for the local business community and the company's founders have first-hand experience of the challenges innovative new companies face when trying to get their ideas off the ground initially.

"By seeking the support of the Local Growth Hub, Gas Tag has been able to access a vast network of experts to set their company on the road to growth."

Gas Tag founder and chief executive Paul Durose said:

“Our technology is already giving councils, housing associations and letting agents the peace of mind they need when it comes to the residential properties for which they are responsible, in relation to safety and compliance with industry standards. Our mission is to go further and get a Gas Tag in every property across the country and to create a nationwide database of all gas works.

“What’s more, the fact that Gas Tag can only be used by qualified gas engineers means that the general public are more protected from illegal gas fitters when they need vital, and potentially high-risk, work doing on gas appliances. Although it should be the first thing each and every one of us should ask, the research suggests that a large number of us are too embarrassed to ask for identification and qualification. With Gas Tag we’re eliminating this problem.”

Durose co-founded Gas Tag in early 2015 with the aim of changing an industry "that had not adapted to using technology to make homes safer". It raised seed money from early investors and then raised private equity money in early 2018 to expand.

"Having the Local Growth Hub behind us has opened a lot of doors and helped to make vital connections to the knowledge and experience that exists here in Liverpool when it comes to tech, innovation and business growth. In fact, a lot of the professionals that we are working with to this day were first brought to our attention via our involvement with the Local Growth Hub."
